VÅRAN HUD, VÅRAT BLOD, VÅRA BEN
– OUR SKIN, OUR BLOOD, OUR BONES
By John Ajvide Lindqvist
Night after night a child waits at the berth of the Finland ferry, staring out at the sea. A lorry driver with a bloody secret picks up a hitch-hiker with suspiciously little luggage. A young couple get the chance to buy a house at a very low price due to ”special circumstances”.
Our Skin, Our Blood, Our Bones is a collection of horror stories in the unmistakable style of John Ajvide Lindqvist, that take place in contemporary Sweden, just outside our field of vision. We get to meet a number of both common as well as more unusual creatures such as ghosts, vampires, werewolves, pixies, zombies and a sea monster.
The title story which was nominated for the British Fantasy Award for Best Short Story is, according to John Ajvide Lindqvist, the most frightening story he has ever written.
