Johann Thorsson is a writer of fiction with a supernatural slant, mainly short stories, mainly in English.

He was born in 1978 in a small town in Iceland (dark and cold, close to the sea). When he was nine (am I speaking about myself in the third person?) he moved to Israel, and later to Croatia. He now resides in the Reykajvik area with his beautiful girlfriend and two little kids (that’s his son Atli Valur he’s reading to).

His work has appeared in numerous publications, including Every Day Fiction, eFiction Magazine, eFiction Horror and Fireside Fiction.

Johann is a regular contributor to the web’s most excellent book site, Bookriot, where he gets to talk about books to a rather large audience.

His favorite books are 1984, Flowers for Algernon, I am LegendThe Things They Carried and Neil Gaiman’s Sandman graphic novels. Oh, and Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient. Daniel Woodrell’s Winter’s Bone. Romeo and Juliet. (This could go on for a while).

He blogs here.


He is currently working on two novels and far too many short stories. He has no agent *hint hint*.
