Occasionally I Contemplate Murder

Semi-fiction book by Stefan Stenudd

Occasionally I Contemplate Murder is not a novel, exactly. I call it a thought-book. I think about life, death, and the meaning of it all. Often, my thoughts are illustrated by anecdotes, myths, or short stories, because reasoning alone is a tool with limited capacity — especially when it comes to the so-called eternal questions.

       The book was originally written in English, to avoid the serenity that the Swedish language tends to lead to automatically. A Swedish publisher talked me into translating it to Swedish, and it was published in Sweden in 1987. The English version was published in 2006, almost 20 years later. If you want to buy the printed version of the book, see below.

       I have also made a video filmed recital of the beginning of the book. Just click the image above to start it.

       Anyway, it's all here, divided into as many webpages as it has got chapters, all of them conveniently short.

       You can start reading any of those chapters, but I do believe you will get more out of them, if you follow the conventional order. Enjoy.

  15. MOST CERTAINLY an ignorant hypothesis, nevertheless lucrative, is the idea of a universe without Gods...

  16. THE PROBLEM OF PEACE is somewhat similar to that of Heaven and Hell...
