Waiting for the Machines to Fall Asleep – Swedish science fiction

The short story collection ”Waiting for the Machines to Fall Asleep” has released! 26 short stories from the new wave of Swedish speculative fiction writers awaits you, prepare for a journey into the unknown.

Forget about cheap furniture, meatballs and crime fiction. Sweden has so much more to offer. ”Waiting for the Machines to Fall Asleep” contains stories from the new generation of Swedish writers of science fiction. Stories ranging from space horror and post-apocalyptic nightmares to tender dramas. Stories with steampunk horses, android uprisings and cheeky goblins. Stories that are action-packed, wise, silly, beautiful, surreal and horrifying.

I’m contributing with the short stories ”The Rats”, as well as ”The White Ones” exclusively for the free e-book sample.
