This is a book trailer of my flash fiction stories.
“After many years spent loitering in the narrow alley between literary and DIY fiction, Nick/Piotr/Nizej is the figure whose work and persona sticks with me. His stories are reminiscent of his countryman Stanislaw Lem, exhibiting the same absurdity and sense of cheery darkness.”
Jim Hanas o angielskim tłumaczeniu e-opowiadań
“I love how these stories show an understanding of the nuanced relationship between human beings and technology, which is often belied by the absurdity of the humor. Technology is presented not as a boogey-man, but rather as the tools human beings create to fill real needs.”
Moxie Mezcal o angielskim tłumaczeniu e-opowiadań
“These stories serve as a reminder. Issued up from the heart of Poland by a wired writer in translated English making absurd light of situations unimaginable even a decade ago, ones fraught with the danger of banality. But this nimble writer deftly zigzags to humor and sheer wackiness.”
Court Merrigan o angielskim tłumaczeniu e-opowiadań

- Making Dylan Maxwell
on Dec. 05, 2009
Moxie Mezcal writes punk-as-**** guerilla fiction. "Making Dylan Maxwell" is a first rate example of this original style. This remix of a forthcoming novel "Concrete Underground" brings us to the rusty warehouse in the middle of the industrial zone to become a part of a thrilling game, you've never seen before.
If you're tired of reading same old novels, about same old bored rich guys, same old hard drugs and same old shiny cars, just go outside, find a scariest possible place and meet Dylan Maxwell.
- #VSS Anthology Volume 01
on May 12, 2010
I love reading Twitter fiction, and this anthology has one outstanding benefit I was not aware until I read it - opposite to Twitter stream, where you read great stories accidentally, you have all the best of it presented the way it should be: organized.
Every author in this book has his exceptional voice and brings his unique world to the reader. Just read three stories in a row and you're there completely.
Many great worlds, one great anthology. Waiting for next volumes!
