Full time translator with three novels by Tim Powers and a Neil deGrasse Tyson book under his belt, as well as occasional writer with several short stories published in local magazines and anthologies. Hoping to complete (and publish) his debut novel before the heat death of the universe.

Ninefox Gambit - Yoon Ha LeeLast year I made the error of kicking off the top-of-the-pops postwith the second-best book of the year, leaving the site carrying the runner-up at the top of the page for a while. This year, I will not make the same mistake, and will merely mention, for example, Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, the utterly silly, short, postmodern sorta-kinda-novel of Kublai Khan and Marco Polo philosophizing...

Still a helluva lot of fun, but a slight step down from the first book. Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich was a perfect combination of gorgeously lush, funny illustrations and hilarious rhymes, while this one dedicates quite a bit of its volume to the "H ...more
Stara usta by Vladimir Stojšin
"Mila majko, koliko čudnih knjiga ima na ovome svetu. I zaboravljenih i skrajnutih.
"Stara usta" nisu čudna na neki fenomenalan način zbog kojih bi bilo kome postali omiljeni roman - ali jeste u pitanju apartna pripovest, zatvorena i fragmentarna is..." Read more of this review »

Robert A. Heinlein
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
Robert A. Heinlein

“Evolution has no foresight. Complex machinery develops its own agendas. Brains — cheat. Feedback loops evolve to promote stable heartbeats and then stumble upon the temptation of rhythm and music. The rush evoked by fractal imagery, the algorithms used for habitat selection, metastasize into art. Thrills that once had to be earned in increments of fitness can now be had from pointless introspection. Aesthetics rise unbidden from a trillion dopamine receptors, and the system moves beyond modeling the organism. It begins to model the very process of modeling. It consumes evermore computational resources, bogs itself down with endless recursion and irrelevant simulations. Like the parasitic DNA that accretes in every natural genome, it persists and proliferates and produces nothing but itself. Metaprocesses bloom like cancer, and awaken, and call themselves I.”
Peter Watts, Blindsight
