In 1969, he published his first book-length work on science fiction, "Science fiction – från begynnelsen till våra dagar". This landed him a job at Askild & Kärnekull (A&K) as an editor for their science fiction books. In the summer of 1973, he left A&K and worked with Delta Förlag that he ran together with the literary agent Gunnar Dahl. Until the end of the 1980s Delta publiched about 200 science fiction books.
