My updated author/novelist/poet/writer «CV»

 The startlingly different CV four years ago

  My fourteen completed novels:

  The Defenseless 1973 – 1982, 2002 - 2004, published 2010
  The Slaves 1977, 1982 – 1984, 2004 - 2005, published 2010
  Birds Flying the Dark 1984 – 1986, 2004 – 2006, published 2011
  From the Ashes 1986 – 1987
  There was no summer 1987 – 1989
  Dreams Belong to the Night 1989 – 1991, 1997 – 1999, 2002 - 2003 (Norwegian edition published 2002, English with corrections and rewrites 2011)
  ShadowWalk 1989 – 1993, 1998 – 2001, 2004 (First published in paperback 2003, republished hardback with corrections and minor rewrites 2011)
  Your Own Fate 1997 – 2000, 2003 - 2004, published 2010
  Thunder Road: Ice and Fire 1994 – 2002, 2010 - 2014
  Night on Earth 1991 – 2004, published 2010
  Alarums of Reality 2001, 2004 – 2010, published 2012
  At the End of the Rainbow 1995, 2005 – 2010, published 2012
  Afterglow Dust 2004 – 2013, published 2014
  Black Dragon 2008 – 2014

  From the Ashes and There was no Summer aren’t yet ready for publication, not even close. Thunder Road: Ice and Fire is considerably closer.

  Some novels well under way, the start year(s):

  The Hitchhiker in the Woods 1999
  Season of the Witch 2001 (I write less than one chapter a year here, for some reason, probably because I work very hard at making it vastly different from previous stories on the subject)
  Fangs and Claws of the Earth 2001, 2010 (I keep writing on this one, probably a novella)
  Footprints on the Water 2001
  Phoenix Green Earth 2002 (major final book of the Janus Clan story)
  Red Shadow 2006 (probably a novella)
  Falling 2006 (probably completed later this year)
  Lewis of Modern York 2010 (fifth Janus Clan book)
  Afterglow Rain 2013 (sequel to Afterglow Dust)

  I used to do many of those, and also other projects simultaneously, but I finally overextended myself, and something had to give. Now, as a general rule I focus on a few of them, mostly those closest to completion.

  Short stories:

Germs 2006
Tall and big blonde girl 2010
To get away with Murder – a fictional story 2013
Christian Erdinger: concerto for six humans, four gorillas and two black panthers 2014

  Movie scripts:

Exodus (short) 1997
One day in the life of John Smith (short) 1997
Hidden World 1997 – 2006
Earth and Sky, Day and Night episode one: Resurrection Dreams 2001 - 2007
Confessions of a Midnight Cannibal (short) 2007 – 2009
3 minutes+ (short) 2011
Coughing (also called Lunch) (short) 2014

  Working on:

Travels and Revels, Life and Magick, Tales from Hell and Beyond - Aleister Crowley
A Meaningless Story
The Wrong World (documentary)
The Dangers of Obedience (documentary)
The Dark River - existential horror series
Time and Tide – the series
Dark Urban Legends - the series
The Man that wasn’t Himself
The House that would not Rest
Earth and Sky, Day and Night – the series
A road movie in black and white
Another road movie in black and white

  And quite a few others…
  I work on many levels with many different things, with as many levels as I possibly can, and more.

  Theater script (never written down anywhere except excerpts in the novels Dreams Belong to the Night and Thunder Road):

  The Gray Fog – A Shakespeare-inspired collage 1988 – 1993, performance street theater, played in the streets of London and throughout Europe.

The short stories may also easily become films.
Hopefully all the novels will be.

  Collections of poems:

The Green Rose 1990 – 1993, 1995
Cry of the Jester 1993
Poems of the Hot Wind 1994 – 1996
Travels and Revels, Life and Magick, Tales from Hell and Beyond - Aleister Crowley 1995
The Infinity Cycle 1995 – 1998
CHRONICLES OF OUR DREAMS - Dreamed 1998 – 2001
Diary of a Traveling Man 2002
The Beautiful, Exciting World in Pieces 2003

Complete Poems (all collections above) published 2011

  I’m a storyteller. These are my tales.
