An allegory of the primordial myth of humankind's fall from Eden, fused with the subsequent, never-ceasing quest for truth and knowledge.

Contemporary Fiction

Playing With Fire

Simply a married man having an affair? Guess again! This book really captures the essence of life's pitfalls and highways, going way deeper.

A son seeks out his father in a new world teeming with magic and characters from all real and fictional races, waiting to be explored.

A heart-warming, ludicrous and turbulent story set in a world of fantasy where every character expresses humor and despair simultaneously.

Contemporary Fiction

Blind Alley

Eight stories; eight genuine, entertaining depictions of life in an India entangled between past, present and future.

Delightfully thrilling, terrifyingly realistic, with the correct balance between dialogue and action, fantasy and reality.

A perilously intriguing journey that rips through the fabric of myth and history, unveiling a chaotically magical and intriguing reality.

Epic Fantasy

Sail to my Heart

A bold attempt at an explicit, postmodern adaptation of pirates, treasures and mermaids, that arguably falls quite off the mark.

Horror

Transfer

An exceptionally thrilling story that builds up with a solid pace and keeps the reader immersed and emotionally invested.

Action & Adventure

The Source: Origins

Mortals trapped in a bleak, futuristic world, striving to make sense of their thoughts, beliefs and actions, their gods long gone.

A remarkable rendition of an alternate Russia of the 1920s, intriguing, mysterious and indicative of Russian spirit and pride.

A bold idea with decent flow in the narrative, but indicative of mediocrity in language, form and expression.

Middle Grade Fantasy

Grey Squirrels London

A heartwarming adventure of six squirrels that pursue the truth about their reality, identities and anxieties in contemporary London.

This is a highly realistic story of a post-apocalyptic Earth that challenges the concepts of human nature, survival and civilization.

An action-adventure of an elf and a human trapped in a parallel world. A decent story of survival, cooperation and coexistence.
