I’ve been publishing science fiction and fantasy in Croatian since 2005, but I have been writing it since my late teens. My work in Croatian has been published in several collections and literary magazines and I’ve received seven Croatian SF literary awards for my short fiction.
My first novel in English, A Town Called River is an urban fantasy adventure about a Croatian expat returning to his hometown of Rijeka and discovering he’s inherited his grandmother’s magical powers as well as a bunch of problems to go along with them. It came out in November 2021 and it’s available in e-pub and print on demand, both from Shtriga Books.
My first short story sale in English was to Villainous Press’ collection Steampunk: The Other Worlds. Inside you can find my steampunk tale of sea adventure and terror, “Ayelen“.
During the 2020 Croatian lockdown I participated in the Decameron 2020 online literary event. I published two stories, originally in Croatian and then in English when it was decided the initiative’s entire literary output would be translated and made available to English-reading audiences. My stories The Box and The Hanging Man can be found at the links (The Hanging Man’s Croatian version won two genre awards in 2021!).
