Ira Nayman is profilic. Proficlic. Proclif - he writes a lot.
He has self-published five collections of news, reviews, interviews, advice columns and obituaries written by the tireless stagg of the Alternate Reality News Service, starting with Alternate Reality Ain't What It Used To Be and What Were Once Miracles Are Now Children's Toys. This was followed by Luna for the Lunies! and The Street Finds Its Own Uses for Mutant Technologies. The most recent entry in the series, The Alternate Reality News Service's Guide to Love, Sex and Robots is a collection of advice columns. All but the first book are available on Smashwords. (They are also available in print, for those of you who have a fetish for paper...)
New Alternate Reality News Service stories appear weekly on Ira's Web site: Les Pages aux Folles. These include two advice columns: Ask Amritsar (about love and romance and technology) and Ask the Tech Answer Guy (about anything to do with technology except love and romance). Readers are encouraged to submit their own questions for the advice columns. Les Pages aux Folles also contains topical political and social satire and surreal cartoons.
The Weight of Information, the pilot for a radio series based on Alternate Reality News Service articles, can be heard on YouTube; listen to Part One or Part Two.
Ira has written a series of short stories set in a universe where all matter is conscious featuring object psychologist Antonio Van der Whall. As of this writing, three of the stories are in print: “A Really Useful Engine”appeared in the anthology Even Birds Are Chained To The Sky and Other Tales: The Fine Line Short Story Collection; “Escalation is Academic” can be found in the anthology UnCONventional, and; “Thinking is the Worst Way to Travel” can be read in Explorers: Beyond the Horizon. Several others have been sent to various publications, where they await editorial acceptance.
Ira has also written two Transdimensional Authority novels: Welcome to the Multiverse (Sorry for the Inconvenience) and You Can't Kill the Multiverse (But You Can Mess With its Head). A third, Random Dingoes, will be published in 2015. They follow the adventures of Noomi Rapier and Crash Chumley as they thwart dastardly plots across universes.
Fans of Ira Nayman’s science fiction writing are encouraged to check Les Pages aux Folles periodically for news about the availability of these and future stories.
