Gunnar Norskog is an American writer of Scandinavian descent. As a child, his mother encouraged him to tell people he was a Viking. Teachers tried correcting him: “You mean you’re Swedish and Norwegian.” He would reply, “Yes. I am, and German too. And I am part Viking.” In fact, one of his family lines, the Nordskogs (later Americanized to Norskog) traces back to the 1100’s and true Viking warriors. Possibly only a writer of dark fantasy and speculative fiction would revel in the idea that his ancestors had spilled a lot of blood and pillaged their way across Europe.
Gunnar writes horror, science fiction, dark fantasy, and literary speculative fiction. He has attended many fiction classes and workshops in all genres. He’s gained experience editing and publishing for several magazine and book publishers. He’s attended World Horror Convention, World Fantasy Convention, Wiscon, and many other regional conventions. He currently lives amongst the red mountains and petrified dunes of Southern Utah, where he hikes fanatically. His hometown is Mound, Minnesota, a frozen tundra surrounded by lakes that must have seemed like home to his Viking forebears.
