The Swedes are back

Last year we had the pleasure of having two Swedish authors, Karin Tidbeck and Nene Ormes, as our guests. That went so well, we have decided to invite another Swede for this year’s Fantasticon.

Patrik Centerwall is an author from Gothenburg whose first collection Skymningssång was published in October 2013.

You can read more about him on his website skymningssang.wordpress.com although you have to be able to understand Swedish.

På sidste års Fantasticon havde vi de to svenske forfattere Karin Tidbeck og Nene Ormes som gæster, og det gik så godt, at vi har besluttet at invitere endnu én.

Denne gang er det debutanten Patrik Centerwall fra Gøteborg, hvis novellesamling Skymningssång udkom i efteråret.

Man kan læse mere om ham på hans hjemmeside skymningssang.wordpress.com

Meet the frog

fantasticon14Tom Kristensen is the artist behind this year’s poster and we have to say: We love the frog!

Tom was a guest at Fantasticon 2013 where he talked about the graphic novel Made Flesh which he and Lars Kramhøft created.
Made Flesh has been nominated for The Danish Horror Award 2013, but Tom is in fact a double nominee as his own graphic novel Deadboy is also on the shortlist.

Dette års plakat er tegnet af Tom Kristensen, og vi kan lige så godt indrømme det: Vi elsker frøen!

Tom var gæst på Fantasticon 2013, hvor han fortalte om tegneserien Made Flesh, som han har skabt sammen med Lars Kramhøft.

Made Flesh er nomineret til Dansk Horror Selskabs pris Årets Danske Horrorudgivelse, men det er faktisk kun den ene af Toms to nomineringer. Hans egen tegneserie Deadboy er også indstillet.
