It’s Inevitable

It’s not over. Two short stories by the late author/phenomenon Stieg Larsson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) have been discovered in the Swedish National Library.

Will the stories be published? Well, they have a lot of strikes against them:

  • They’re short stories, not novels.
  • They’re science fiction.
  • They were written when when Larsson was only 17.
  • They were rejected by the Swedish magazine Jules Verne.

The final decision as to whether or not to publish the stories rests with Larsson’s estate, but there’s really no question that they will make their way to bookstores eventually. Details are here.–David E
