Igor Ljubuncic is a physicist by vocation, an IT nerd by profession, and a prolific author with fourteen published works since 2011. His current portfolio spans three technical books, seven novels, and four anthologies, including a short story, The Girl with the Flaxen Hair, which was nominated for the 2014 Sidewise Awards for Alternate History!
Igor’s latest publication is I Shall Slay the Dragon! This epic, biblical mythology novel retells the original tragic love story – that of Samson and Delilah – only with a twist. Now, there’s a dragon, too.
Released in 2017, Decay (Humanz 1.0) is a dystopian, zombie-themed novella, told in first person from the perspective of a zombie.
Earlier in 2016, Igor published The Amazing Adventures of Dashing Prince Dietrich (Woes & Hose 1), a hilarious, fast-paced, gunpowder-rich grim yet fun book that takes you into a crazy, hectic world of disappointed sons of royalty, romance, sharp humor, and even sharper swords. Guns, too.
Before that, between 2012-2015, Igor released a four-volume epic fantasy saga titled The Book of Lost Words, which inspired the name for this website. The four books, The Betrayed, The Broken, The Forgotten, and The Humbled have garnered almost 200 reviews with an average score of 4.0/5.0 so far.
Igor has also participated in four anthologies sponsored and organized by SFFWorld.com. Notably, his short story, The Girl with the Flaxen Hair, part of the SFFWorld.com 2014 anthology, War to End All Wars: Alternate Tales from the Trenches, was nominated for the Sidewise Awards for Alternate History! A proud moment in every writer’s life.
Furthermore, Igor has also released several short stories online, with Allegory Ezine and SFFWorld.com. He also has a traditional IT and data-center related publication with Elsevier, named Problem Solving in High-Performance Computing, as well as two other technical books.
When not writing prose, Igor runs a cool website called dedoimedo.com, dedicated to software, which racks up about a million page views every month. Yonder, you will find a lot of technical stuff, more than 2,000 articles, a handful of free books, and a lot more. Igor’s technical work has been published in leading journals and magazines, online and in print, and in 2013, his site has been voted #2 by FOSS Force, and #5 by Linux Journal, a top open-source publication in the world. In 2015, Dedoimedo was voted #1 software blog by Rocky Bytes!
