Stian M. Landgaard (born October 23, 1978) is a Norwegian writer and translator from German. He has studied philosophy and comparative literature. His first novel, Herrer i åndenes rike (Masters in the Realm of Spirits, was published by Aschehoug in August 2006. It is a story about Christian Winther, a student of Nietzsche who attempts to apply Nietzschean philosophy to his own life and relations, and by so doing falls out with his friends, his family -- and, most importantly, with his younger brother.
His second novel, Portrett i flammer (Portrait in Flames) was published in August 2023. It tells the story of a Norwegian painter who in 1974 visits the Isle of Wight and finds himself surrounded by a stormy landscape of art and love.
Landgaard's first translation from German into Norwegian, of Nietzsche's philosophical work Daybreak, was published in September 2007 by Spartacus.
