Merry Christmas! :) Look forward to reading more from you.

I'll break open the story and tell you what is there. Then, like the others that have fallen out onto the sand, I will finish with it, and the wind will take it away.

And welcome. :)
Drakkar you got your wish!

Amazing a year has passed! Merry Christmas John.
Looking forward to Let the Old Dreams Die, and I have to say that I find the idea of zombies shuffling to Brother Louie or Geronimo's Cadillac to be very intriguing to say the least :D

Im both saddened and glad the day I joined this community.
Glad that I'm here, and sad that I missed so much that has already happened.

Here's hoping for another year for this community.
Merry Christmas all!

John, I think it more accurate to think of us as being precisely what the forum's name suggests: Infected. You've crafted a work of fiction that transfixes and mystifies us endlessly. I seriously can't wait for more of your work to appear in English (because I am unfortunately too old to learn new languages)!

Happy Christmas. I've been absent for a while and it's very nice to know the forum is still active. I just re-read Let The Right One In and I was transfixed again -- read it in one lazy, snowy day.

I have never been more proud about being an Infected :D . I am so going to buy Let the Old Dreams Die when it comes out :D .

(Isn´t that just the perfect match? Zombies and Modern Talking.)
You remember Modern Talking! I was dancing to Modern Talking then. Zombies and Modern Talking? I would agree with you. PERFECT! :mrgreen:

Oh yes. Merry Christmas.

Thank you for LDRKI and all your other fantastic tales, you have made a fan for life of me and probably many more of us.
Keep the beautiful horror coming!

Season's Greetings to you, John-mon. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Glad Noel, Cool Yule, and so on. Thanks for remembering us humble Infected.

I'm just thinking out loud here, but I'm wondering: English is spoken much more widely around the world than probably any other language. In fact, English is probably closer to a universal language than any other in history. That being the case, and since John Lindqvist speaks and writes excellent English, I'm wondering if at some point -- as he gains a worldwide audience -- if the author might benefit from writing his books in English rather than his native Swedish. It seems to me that his books would get a wider circulation more quickly if that were the case. Any thoughts?
