I live in Copenhagen, which is quite rainy. Sometimes sunny, but mostly rainy. Or at least fairly cloudy. I like to write about monsters and have a PhD in gender studies, hauntology and monster theory, so rest assured that all my claims regarding bumps in the night and sudden death are peer reviewed, academically sound and perfectly feminist. Trust me, I’m a monster doctor.
The title of this site – uhyrligt – is a slightly old-fashioned Danish word for ‘monstrous’ and ‘outrageous’.
