For Newcomers

Greetings!

You may wonder, what's this place and how to navigate it? If so, this page is made for you.

I prepared this hand-curated index that aims to help you to discover Nova Nevédoma without losing your way, starting with formats and themes that interest you the most.

Most of the digital versions of my work and all of the short stories are free. It's free and costs you nothing, unlocks most of my stories, allows you to leave comments and receive occasional updates about my work, including new stories! (you can opt out from the newsletter if you wish) If you're already subscribed, use your email to login, otherwise here's a button for you:

As of February 2024, the total word count of my publish fiction is about 150k words. It includes dozens of short stories, some of which are quite long, two novellas and a few novels in progress. Here's what published and/or available online:

Quick start

To taste what my writing is like, I suggest these stories below.

Longer works

My first ever novella, closer to a short novel in size, The Debut Project — a story about two friends trying to survive in a fantasy city full of crime. Expect two headed lizard gangsters, laser guns, bloody massacres and more. Together with 14 other short stories from this index, this novella is a part of my first short story collection. If you prefer reading actual real tangible books, here's where to buy it.

Deleted Scenes from the Bestselling Utopian Novel — a story about the nameless protagonist who grapples with the dissonance between their inner world and the oppression of the totalitarian regime in which they live. Expect dark and disturbing scenes, disjointed narrative, dream-like sequences, and absurd humour. It's a part of a short story collection that's coming in early in 2024. There's a series of accompanying thematically similar stories, all of which will appear under "Dystopian" section below.

Dream — a life story of a sniper who dreams to kill the dictator of their regime. It's a part of the Deleted Scenes universe and was supposed to be another plot line in the novella.

Lingus Venus — an intoxicated night of surreal connection between two strangers exploring the paradoxes of language, risk, and the ephemeral nature of reality. Many people said to me it's their favourite story of mine!

Utter Nonsense In Outer Space — a short (but not really) story about unknown cosmic entities. Space explorers make stunning discovery of colossal cosmic frog — what happens next is chilling

Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Hunters — a story I wrote long ago as a screenplay for WoW machinima. This version has only homages to WoW universe but works well standalone. It's a short story where two men, alive and dead, sit, talk and drink vodka in an abandoned tavern.

The Testimony Of Sixth The Second — a kinda of a detective short story about AI, Art and Beauty, written as a court protocol of an android's testimony.

Utter Nonsense In Outer Space — Space Explorers Make Stunning Discovery of Colossal Cosmic Frog — What Happens Next Is Chilling

Anecdotic Adventures Of Khorya And Borya

This is WIP collaboration with my brother Ilia. We have two stories written but we have some ideas about the style and how it can become a novel, so whatever you see here might change quite considerably.

How Khorya And Borya Smuggled A Chortin a world of misadventures and misfits, a bearded man, a talking chest, and a quest for elusive lucres collide in a chaotic mountain journey.

How Khorya And Borya Nicked A Domovoy — Kharitón and Borís, two rascals entangled in the dregs of freedom, find themselves in a surreal escapade.

Dark Comedy & Satire & Absurd

A Clockwork Human — a short featuring a diary of a cynocephalic dog scientist conducting weird experiments on humans.

Shiteaters — a short story on how AI made people eat their faeces.

Reasoning With The Algorithm (has audio!)— "What good is a ginormous brain if it can’t even count?" It was written for Craig Burgess to record as a short audio play.

Before the Big Bang — uncovering evidence of ancient Titans who once ruled their world

DaaS — When immortality loses its luster.

Dystopian (the Deleted Scenes and more)

Deleted Scenes from the Bestselling Utopian Novel isn't just a novella but a whole story collection with various accompanying stories exploring dystopian setting. They are (probably) happen in the same universe and, despite being fictional, most definitely inspired by and often based on our reality.

Fluffislav The Fearsome — as the meow echoes, the utopia quakes.

Training Memory —memories, melancholy, and theuncharted tracks of life.

Monsters — in the darkest hour, an imaginary hero brings hope and courage.

Dream — a life story of a sniper who dreams to kill the dictator of their regime.

Soon — a tale of resilience and hope in the shadow of a dictator's fall, where a young girl learns to navigate a world of secrets and waiting.

Larik & Vitya Series

This series features various dialogues between Vitya and Illarion Illarionovich, two filmmakers, connoisseur's of high art. Some of them have audio!

Reviews (has audio!) — Larik and Vitya reading reviews on their first feature film.

Look at The Horizon (has audio!)— an encounter at the beach where the search for inspiration takes an unexpected turn.

Beelzebufo, The Annihilator Of Dinosaurs — When art meets prehistory: two filmmakers, one dinosaur, endless possibilities.

The Void Travellers — Alien philosophy over a couple of pints.

Surrealism & Magic Realism

Bewildering Wilderness — in the heart of a storm, one man's quest for spirits becomes a battle with his own. It's a fine example of proesia (prose poetry), my attempts to make prose more poetic, lyrical, and weird.

For Whom The Universe Caws — a story of a vagabond who made friends with a raven. Another example of proesia.

Once in a birch grove, I chanced upon a cat — A short story of one mushroom hunt.

Brainlephant — a story considered to be my first short story, a tale about a guy obsessed with elephants and fortune cookies

The Mysterious Trip of Mark Markethrudder — a story about a man travelling down to hell to learn secrets of marketing.

Romance

Words Unspoken (has audio!) — just a romantic bar scene between two individuals.

Quantum Crush — In a world where love is ruled by the heart, Felix Futzbucker finds himself governed by the laws of physics.

Lingus Venus — an intoxicated night of surreal connection between two strangers exploring the paradoxes of language, risk, and the ephemeral nature of reality.

Unidentifiable

Most of my stories are hard to put into a single category, but this one is reserved for my stories with no category at all.

The Blue Pill Of Atlantis (has audio!)— a nostalgic merman's tale of a fading Atlantis, where the past and present collide in a sea of forgotten wisdom.

The Unremitting Moneday — virtual gems, real dilemmas: a journey through the moral maze of digital entertainment.

Transcendental Memes — honestly, it wasn't even a story, for it was intended as an essay in which I wanted to introduce a famous Russian meme, "One Who Walks Towards The River" to English-speaking audience. I tried to do my best translating it and wrapping into a weird narrative. Now, as of Nov 2023, here's apparently AI translation of a fragment from the original video!

Another Stitch On The Wall — how I went vegan for one evening in Amsterdam.

Helix — a sweet and sour tale of time, ducks, and the complexity of family reunions.

A Room with a Mew — an elderly woman named Nellie sits by her window observing life in her village when a local drunkard named Leo tries to sell her a kitten.

Felixverse

There are many versions of Felix Futzbucker, but the ones below are sketches from the life of more "modern" versions of him, who could've been our contemporaries.

Futzbuckers Forthcoming — a story of Felix Futzbucker's birth.

Maytroshka Theory — a story of Felix's obsession with the infinity and matryoshkas.

Quantum Crush — In a world where love is ruled by the heart, Felix Futzbucker finds himself governed by the laws of physics.

Brainlephant — a story considered to be my first short story, a tale about a guy obsessed with elephants and fortune cookies
