More indie authors

More indie authors (Egenutgivarna) at the Gothenburg Book Fair 2014.

During the course of the Book Fair, a number of the Egenutgivarna authors were interviewed at the stand. Below Sverker Snidare, author of Den tretonde messias (The Thirteenth Messiah) is being filmed by Mats Ekman, himself author of Growin’ Leaves. In the screen of Mats’ videocamera you can just make out the interviewer, Hans Hirschi.

The last of my author portraits from this year’s Gothenburg Book Fair, this is Tora Greve with her latest science fiction novel Erövaren (The Conqueror) – the first in a projected series, The Sirius Chronicles. Tora is also a textile artist and the cover of her book shows a tapestry she made as an illustration. Photo taken in front of the Liseberg waterfall across the road from the Gothia Towers hotel.

Tora är också en textilkonstnär och omslaget till hennes bok visar en väv hon gjorde. Foto tagen framför Lisebergsvattenfallet tvärs över gatan från Gothia Towers Hotel.

To celebrate this year’s Gothenburg Book Fair, which starts tomorrow, I’m running a mini theme of authors reading from their books. First out is Hans Hirschi, current chair of Egenutgivarna, the Swedish association of indie authors, who launched his fourth book, The Fallen Angels of Karnataka, at a party in Gothenburg’s Litteraturenshus (House of Literature) yesterday evening. More of my photos from the event on Hans’ blog here.
