About this place

Welcome, wanderer.

My name is Vanya. I'm a writer. My work probes contemporary and near-future issues through a lens of whimsy and dark humour, influenced by diverse genres such as magical realism, sci-fi, fantasy, satire, etm.

Nova Nevedoma is my little corner of the internet. It’s where I publish all my fiction and essays and connect with my readers. I’m also a regular contributor to Soaring Twenties publication.

Follow my journey by signing up for my mailing list (it’s free). I’ll send you occasional emails with my new work and other updates.

Currently, I’m working on my first novel which I’m sure you don’t want to miss.

Where to start?

I have a novella, it’s kind of genre-less, but has fantasy, sci-fi, comedy, crime elements:

The Debut Project
a novella

And a couple of my favourite short stories I wrote

  • Monsters — in the darkest hour, an imaginary hero brings hope and courage.
  • The Blue Pill Of Atlantis — a nostalgic merman's tale of a fading Atlantis, where the past and present collide in a sea of forgotten wisdom.
  • Bewildering Wilderness — in the heart of a storm, one man's quest for spirits becomes a battle with his own.
  • The Unremitting Moneday — virtual gems, real dilemmas: a journey through the moral maze of digital entertainment.
  • For Whom The Universe Caws — a story of a vagabond who made friends with a raven.

and three essays:

and two translations (from Russian):
