The first is a novella called The Silence, which is a stand alone story set in my Xiinisi Universe, back when Elishevera was alive. It's an origin story on several levels, but mostly explores the break up of a friendship over a difference in beliefs. The second project is in indie game development, a hex tile strategy game called Hivernation. (less)

“My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres; it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.”
