stockholmstanley Stanley Bloom was born in London, but has lived in Sweden for many years. A graduate of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), he was formerly on the staff of Radio Sweden and has long experience of international and educational broadcasting.
The author of Blue Guide, Sweden (London and New York), The Sorcerer of Stockholm, a novel set in the Swedish capital, and Binny and Belloe, a fantasy tale intended for young and old, he has also edited and/or translated many works, taught English at most levels, lectured on a range of subjects, run an intensive course for company employees needing to write documents in English, and travels a great deal, mainly to the UK, California and New Zealand (where he was for some time a contributor to Radio New Zealand's then Viewpoint programme), though it would take a lot to make him leave Sweden in the summer, where his favourite place to be is in the Stockholm archipelago.
A keen photographer since his schooldays, when he started processing his own black-and-white photos, at one time he also played the fiddle in a folk group.
