I’m a Korean-Norwegian writer who lives in Norway and writes in English.
My collection of short stories, Beneath the Liquid Skin, was published by firthFORTH Books / Queen’s Ferry Press in November 2012.
My stories have appeared in various literary journals and anthologies, including Unstuck, Bluestem, Smokelong Quarterly, Metazen and decomP magazinE. Selected published stories here.
In late 2012, one of my stories was nominated for the Pushcart prize and another for the British Science Fiction Award.
A short version of the collection was a semi-finalist in the 2011 Rose Metal Press chapbook competition.
Two of my stories received an honorable mention by Ellen Datlow for Best Horror of the Year vol. 4 in April 2012.
I had the honor of being guest editor for the beautiful international literary journal Asian Cha issue 18 in the Summer of 2012.
I admit to pining for the fjords when abroad.
