Published in 2019

What better way to celebrate the New Year than a poem New Year’s Resolutions : Comprehensive Manual published in MadSwirl magazine.

Published in 2018

My Super-Grip has appeared in the Commuter Lit.

Loosely based on true events. Some interesting feedback from readers on the site. Some like it, some don't. You're welcome to add your feedback.

The Pierced Portrait has been published in Fabula Argentea.

This story is a fictionalized account of my family's WWII history. Almost everything there is true, especially the events that seem the most unlikely.

And this is the pierced portrait itself. See more pictures and details here: The Pierced Portrait -- Fact and Fiction.

A poem about... socks. And why not? Who said that socks don't deserve to be a poetic subject? "Socks" was dictated to me by our dog Nicky and subsequently published in Bewildering Stories.

"You" published in The Gyroscope Review (page 57 in the pdf).


My poem "I Am a Ship" has been included into "Poems for a Liminal Age" anthology in support of Médecins Sans Frontières.

"Psalm 3.14159..." Nominated for Pushcart Prize.

See the lucky poem here.

In 2014 and 2015 I concentrated on writing my first novel, so

even though some new poems and stories have been published, I rarely bothered to update the publications list. 2016 brought mainly personal cataclysms of various magnitude of calamity. In 2017 I spent most of my writing time editing my novel neglecting tracking my published stories and poems here.

Published in 2016

"Tiny Fingers" in The Linnet's Wings.

"Articles Extinction", "Molly Flanders Forever" and "Eating a Scone" in Slink Chunk Press.
