The second book in the Woes & Hose series is coming along nicely. There’s a cover! A glorious cover for The Glorious Adventures of Glamorous Prince Dietrich. As always, designed by legendary Anton Kokarev. I asked him for an appropriate sequel to the first book, plus an even more punchable face for our anti-hero protagonist. To wit, the results. I am really happy about this book. Writing si... Read more of this blog post »

Just a Silly Robot (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 28, 2019 12:21PM
Description: A robot tries to prevent the suicide of the last surviving human crew member on an interstellar travel mission. This short story was originally published in Allegory ezine, Volume 32/59 Fall/Winter 2017 edition.
Exorcism is a Tough Business (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 23, 2017 12:53PM
Description: A short story originally intended for an anthology. It's a parody about everything. Imagine a topic. It's there. More specifically, this is a story of lucky numbers, religion and the economy downturn, with a twist of the supernatural.
The Price to Pay (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 11, 2017 09:32AM
Description: This is a short story written for the Flash Fiction monthly competition on the SFFWorld forums. The theme of the May-June contest was The Price to Pay, and I've named my work the same way. Creatively unimaginative.
What About My Humanity? (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 11, 2017 09:31AM
Description: What About My Humanity? tells a story of one's man coping with the terrible legacy of his life in a post-apocalyptic, Dystopian world, where big corporations preside over mankind, and where people are valued only by their usefulness as cheap labor. Kind of like today, is it not? P.S. This story was originally published in Allegory ezine Volume 28/55 Fall/Winter 2015 edition.

Igor’s Recent Updates

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie
"Impressive.

Interesting play with gender pronouns. Shines the light on subtle and unconscious stereotyping and prejudices, based on gender. The default, in The Radtch, is "she". In some "backwater" planets, sexual gender identification is important..." Read more of this review »
Dancer's Lament by Ian C. Esslemont
"2nd reread edit: full series review out next week🗡

Reread edit: so much love for this on the second read through. Next book out in November so if any Malazan fans haven’t picked this one up yet, get to it....it’s well worth your time.

This book is a page-turner! When I finished it at 3 am, I felt like it had only been a few minutes. So, if you have time to kill, like you are waiting for some important test results or for your kid to find their shoes so you can leave the house,..." Read more of this review »

William Shakespeare
“This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day”
Shakespeare's Henry V

“Freddy, as a younger man, I was a sculptor, a painter, and a musician. There was just one problem: I wasn't very good. As a matter of fact, I was dreadful. I finally came to the frustrating conclusion that I had taste and style, but not talent. I knew my limitations. We all have our limitations, Freddy. Fortunately, I discovered that taste and style were commodities that people desired. Freddy, what I am saying is: know your limitations. You are a moron.”
Lawrence Jamieson, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

William Goldman
“Inconceivable!"
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride

Terry Pratchett
“In theory it was, around now, Literature. Susan hated Literature. She'd much prefer to read a good book.”
Terry Pratchett, Soul Music

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men, doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”
J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
