The Author Claus Bork


Claus Borks first books, Regnbuebøgerne, were published as a trilogy in 1985 by Forlaget Apostrof in Copenhagen.
Then came a number of titles from Forlaget Lina, after which Claus Bork started his own publishing company, Sorte Sigurd - through 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') - but the company went out of business before the contract was a reality.

Retrolife Studio, © Claus Bork, All rights reserved - Esplanaden 6, 28040, Skånes Fagerhult, Sweden –

Claus Bork 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'...

Since 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.
English translation is ongoing. WTC-gate is scheduled to be published in English by September 2015, in United States, Great Britain, Canada and Australia.
