Introduction, Harald S. Næss




Alone in her lover's house

The occupation of Gotland

Felicia Venhaug

The cock under the wash tub

The shadow of the Werewolf

The past is a dream

The story of Gulnare

Until we meet again

Woe unto him who falls into the hands of the Almighty

The myth about Erlingvik

A man without a face

Our own genocide


The fear of ecstasy

The boy in the field

Out on the marshes

Put a chastity belt around your thoughts

The game with Dummy

The woman you gave me

The sneer

Aunt Gustava

"Who told thee that thou wast naked?"

The society girl and the tailor's son

Felicia with the birds

The identity

An approximate nothing

"—or anything that is thy neighbor's"

Julie Erlingsdaughter



The one who wants everything he sees

The underground demon

The Steingrim circle

Until we meet at Erlingvik

Nature distributes her bounty unequally

Et tu, friend Steingrim

Martin Leire

Viktoria Hagen


No regrets

Into Felicia's world

Japanese water color


The dove hunt

Bacchus had no children

A man without a philosophy of life

It happened in history's depth

Romantic meeting


When you have taken the Devil for partner

Horns for our adornment

Father and son

"I gave her Helled Hagen—"

The effective ones

Master-Mason Pedersen's wife

Some are more fortunate

The Vik brothers

Yo-ho-ho, Seaman Jansson

On the dot, the first of each month for thirty-six years

Millennia's yoke on our shoulders laid

A sixtieth birthday calls for a luxury telegram

The clock

All roads lead to Golgotha

"With sorrow I lay down, from tears was salt my mouth—"

"I had been told as a tiny maid—"

The promise

What had the forest and the river seen

When Gustav got in the newspaper

A black hole in the ice on the Numedal River

A messenger from Venhaug

The collector

The lightning struck from Venhaug

Eros and the deathwatch beetle

It happened in Felicia's time
