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, 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.

The Sorcerer of Stockholm
by Stanley Bloom
Samuel Gold deals in antiquarian books. Johnathan, an English teacher, describes it as a passion in a man with a very keen eye for the opposite sex, no eye for the clock and little appreciation of where his many involvements might lead. He also writes humorous verse. Calling him The Sorcerer, it is nevertheless the unpredictable and unreliable Samuel that Jonathan becomes dependent on.
