О нем многие вспоминают в мемуарах – он производил яркое впечатление. На одних прекрасное, на других ужасное, но неизменно сильное. В любом случае, он, кажетс... Read more of this blog post »

Значительная часть скалистых берегов на Тихоокеанском побережье России обрывается прямиком в море, образуя так называемые «непропуски». Значительная часть этих «непропусков» может быть преодолена во время отлива по литорали. Но д... Read more of this blog post »

My new novel, Dodgeball High, was just published by Eraserhead Press.


It was two years in the making and my first book since 2012. I think it’s my best. I know everyone says that about their new book, but I put a lot of hard work into it and I’m very proud of it. It’s about a teenager who starts a...

Love is pushing the last thing
You loved out the window

And moving like blowing sand
On a dark day, it happens
Not to bodies but to souls
Looking for a way to sense

Or avatars. There’s no sadness
When souls fall, because we know
That’s how a soul fastens
Onto... Read more of this blog post »
