In his own language, he has written everything from radio plays to hefty fantasy trilogies. To date, he has sold forty-nine stories in the English language and two children’s books, When the Night-Gaunt Knows Your Name, and The Emerald Boy.

His novel, Phaedra: Alastor 824, set in the universe of Jack Vance, has been published by Spatterlight Press.

His most recent sales are to Daily Science Fiction, Future Science Fiction Digest, Write Ahead, Unreal, and Cirsova.
