“Étrange impression, difficile à communiquer, mais qui mérite en tout cas de se poser pour en découvrir tous les contours…”

The French book blogger Tulisquoi has reviewed Une Ville Vide (The French edition of The Empty City), and it’s an accurate and eloquent review.

Merci beaucoup! Thank you so much for reading Une Ville Vide and
writing such a beautiful review!

“He was almost dead. His eyes had sunk into the skull and his nose looked like it had been pinched shut. The skin was ashen and stretched taut over the cheekbones. I couldn’t tell how old he was, perhaps my age, or a little younger. There was the hush and chill in the room that always accompanies someone’s last hours. But for now he was alive.”

The Gothic story "Among the Living and the Dead" – is now in the most recent issue of New Dead Families!

Thank you so much to editor Zack Wentz for (g)hosting this story!

Check also out the work by Yarrow Paisley and Shoko Hachiya in the same issue!

A review of the JK Huysmans tribute anthology Transactions of the Flesh, with a favorable mention of Summer Dusk, Winter Moon:

“Other treats here include Berit Ellingsen’s northern mythic ‘Summer Dusk, Winter Moon…’”

A few years ago a young Norwegian artist named Einar Bratli generously made a comic book version of one of my early short stories, Satori.

Einar posted the panels of the story in his blog. (Click on the page itself to see the fifth and last panel, not the image sequence.)

Check out Einar’s other comic book art.

There is also the illustrated version of What Girls Really Think, a short story that was published as a miniature chapbook by Brian Warfield’s Turtleneck Press in 2011.

"Multiculturalism affects me first and foremost in that I write in a language that is not the first language of the country I live in.”

An interview about multiculturalism and writing in another language than your first, on the website for and about women writers, Books by Women.

Thank you so much for the interview and the very interesting question about multiculturalism and writing to editor Barbara B.!
