Anders Fager (born 1964 in Stockholm) is a Swedish horror writer. After a career as an army officer and game designer he made his debut in 2009 with the short story collection Swedish Cults (Svenska kulter) that received a most favourable review in Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter[1] and launched Fager's career as full-time writer. Fager writes modern urban horror in a style he has repeatedly described as ”what would happen if James Ellroy took on H.P. Lovecraft”. Set in present-day Sweden, his interconnected stories form a modern part of the Cthulhu mythos with entities such as Dagon, Hastur and Nyarlathotep making appearances. Fager's fictional world, known as "The Cult's World", has been made into a role playing game and a graphic novel. His stories are currently being worked into the role playing game Call of Cthulhu.

Fager lives in Stockholm. His other works includes role playing games, a children's book and work with TV and film scripts. His novel Kaknäs Last Tape is set in the postapocalyptic world of the role playing game Mutant - Year Zero. Fager has worked with audiobook publisher Storytell as well as with White Wolf.

Outside of Sweden, Fager has so far been published in Finland and France [2] and has been introduced in the British Lovecraftiana magazine Cyäegha.[3] A film version of Collected Swedish Cults is being developed by director-team Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein.[4][5]
