number of titles from Forlaget Lina, after which
Claus Bork started his own publishing company, Forlaget Sorte Sigurd
which the last 6 titles were published.
The big breakthrough for Claus Bork, as an author, came with the
publishing of the fantasy book 'Sorte Sigurd' (in English 'Black Mac')
that received tremendous reviews in the press. After that the
filmcompany behind the 'Valhalla' movie paid much attention to the
manuscript 'Bølgernes Børn' ('Children of the Waves') -

made a public statement through the news paper Amts Avisen, in which he
was critical to the fact, that the well known Danish authors of
childrens books Thoeger Birkeland and Bjarne Reuter had side jobs as
critics on newspapers - where they both made some pretty harsh
stametents about their fellow colleague authors. Claus Bork very
clearly made the statement, that he believed this to be unethical. On
the very same evening, a spokesman for the 'literature critics club'
phoned him, and told him, that they would not accept, that an author
made an attack on the literature critics - and warned him, that if he
published another book, he would never again receive any statements or
have any attention from the Danish newspaper critics. After this Claus
Bork published 3 titles: Muffy's lov (Muffy's Law) - DEER - and Det
eventyrlige Karaganda (The Fabulouse Karaganda) - which did not receive
any evaluations at all.
After this, Claus Bork decided to give up the struggle against this
kind of 'berufs verboot' and stopped writing books. He just felt, that
nothing had really changed in Denmark, since H.C. Andersen wrote his
famous fairytale 'The Ugly Duckling'...
then, Claus Bork has moved to Skånes Fagerhult in Sweden, where he's
built an advanced 'music rehearsal studio'. Here he writes books and
composes and plays music and write lyrics for the songs.
The last in
a long line of books was released in Danish language, in Denmark during
April 2015 - titled: WTC-gate. The unofficial story behind the 9/11
attack. This story is far from identical to the official version,
released by the Bush administration in The United States.
translation is ongoing. WTC-gate is scheduled to be published in
English by September 2015, in United States, Great Britain, Canada and
