Lennart Svensson is a Swedish academic living in Härnösand on the northern Swedish coast. He grew up in a virtual wilderness of wooded hills and farmland, listening to his grandmother telling fairy-tales of old. Later, he cherished the stories of modern fantasy writers. Thus was born Redeeming Lucifer, his debut novel in English.It also says this of Svensson's previous publications:
Lennart has published prose works in Swedish, notably his first novel, Antropolis (Etherion Forlag, 2009), a spiritual vision of the future, while in English he has published Borderline – A Traditionalist Outlook for Modern Man (Numen Books, 2015), a clarion call for idealism in this modern age of materialism. His first ever fiction in English was the story The Middle Zone, published in Morpheus Tales: The Best Weird Fiction, Volume 3 (2013).And now, Svensson's novel Redeeming Lucifer is out. Buy it now. So that when in the future your kids ask you, "What did you do in 2017, did you buy the greatest story ever told, Redeeming Lucifer?" -- you can say, "I did".
