— The Lost Words

Warning, warning, warning. Spoilers! Like with the first two books, you get two sample chapters of the third and the latest installment in The Lost Words series, The Forgotten. The book picks up the action right where The Broken ended, so if you have not read that one, please, stop right now, or you might spoil it for yourself. And most importantly, keep the children away. The first chapter, in particular, is very brutal. Now, commence.

It is an anthology commemorating the 100th anniversary of WWI with alternate history stories from the trenches, and it is aptly named Wars to End All Wars – Alternate Tales from the Trenches. Real-life events, only not quite. Now, surprise surprise, one of the contributing authors to this piece is Elizabeth Moon!

Hello, friends. If you happen to own a paperback copy of The Betrayed, hold on to it tightly, as there will be no more like that. A second edition of the book is coming out soon, and it will feature a new, pimped-up cover art, by Anton Kokarev. I am in the process of redesigning the covers, and they shall never be the same again.

In some parts of the world, it is customary to receive gifts on your birthday. I prefer the Hobbit method, where you give presents, so you actually receive them every day rather than once a year. A very neat concept, no. Now, in a couple of weeks, my primary site Dedoimedo celebrates the end of its eighth year of existence, hence gifts. For you.

Now that I’m done with my anti-hero Rennaissance fantasy novel and my first-person zombie novella, I decided to try yet another new angle at writing. So my curiosity took me to 8th Century BC, the Biblical times. As a man with a very particular taste for religion, or rather lack thereof, writing from a biblical point of view is a most refreshing challenge for me.

I am pleased to showcase the cover art for the upcoming third book in The Lost Words series. This time around, I have commissioned the awesome Anton Kokarev of kanartist.ru, to create the cover for me. As always, it’s a divine motif from the book. Now, I will also be redesigning the art work for the first and the second book in the series, and I will call upon Anton’s talent for those, as well.

This time, it’s the zombie novella. Overall, it took me about two weeks of active writing to finish it. Well, maybe less. But finished it is. Now, it’s not a great body of words, only 14K, but for the first installament in a crazy series, I guess it’s cool enough. You might wonder what’s so special about this zombie piece that you haven’t seen anywhere else before?
