My short story “Bethel” from Mimers brunn (Mimir’s Well), a collection of science fiction short stories I wrote many moons ago, is included in a new Swedish sci-fi anthology: Kärlek i maskinernas tid (Love in the Era of Machines).

It’s always tough for me to sum up one of my own stories in a few words, but essentially, “Bethel” tells the story of a woman who is a prisoner in a penal colony on Mars. She is there as a sort of gladiator, fighting for the amusement of spectators, and carries dark memories with her from her past that haunt her in the present.
