What does it take to turn an electrical engineer into a writer? Maybe a wrinkled old lady?
It was a summer day in Thermal power plant “Nikola Tesla”. In the heat of the auxiliary boiler room two engineers were calibrating electrical devices. In the middle of a job that requires dedication, suddenly, out of nowhere, so to speak, a very strange thought came into the mind of the younger. This sudden thought wasn’t related at all to the ongoing work. It was the thought of a man abused by some old lady. “What brought this thought?” wondered the engineer.
A few days later, again within the engineering plant, the same sort of thing is taking place. Up to then, the engineer had forgotten the man and the old woman. But here is the thought again – the old lady is still tormenting the man! “What on earth is this!?” the engineer wondered. Little did he know that the man and the old lady were, in fact, the heroes of the book he would write, the novel called "Malign Field".
The short stories "Adriana" and "Dobrush Valley" were also written by the author of "Malign Field", Ukvard Mil.
The circumstances under which Petar Vulk met Mr. Selcuri had some peculiar trait. The situation was of the kind that Vulk must have doubted its reality. “This is where I wake up, surely?” he thought to himself at one point. “I’m afraid not, Mr. Vulk,” answered Selcuri.
Pripovetka. Godina je 1947. Na jednoj padini francuske planine Krolski zub pojavljuje se čudan objekat, nalik nekakvoj gvozdenoj cevi. Objekat je bio dug oko dvesta metara i imao neka vrlo zanimljiva svojstva. Šest stotina godina ranije, u blizini današnjeg crnogorskog sela Cerova, desila se slična stvar. Padina i objekat. Dakle, pitanje glasi: Šta ovi događaji, zapravo, znače?
Adriana (Serbian Edition)
Pripovijetka. Da li se sjećate Sezone polivanja? One omiljene zabave djece iz solitera kojom se obilježava kraj školske godine. Naliješ kantu vodom, odeš na balkon i sve izručiš na nečiju glavu. Sjajna zabava, zar ne? A sjećate li se Adriane? Nju niko nije polivao, sjećate li se? Ana me je jednom pitala: „Zašto Adrianu niko ne poliva?" Dobro pitanje.
Okolnosti u kojima je Petar Vulk upoznao gospodina Selcurija imaju neku čudnovatu crtu. Situacija je jednostavno bila takva da je Vulk morao posumnjati u njenu realnost. „Da li ću se sad jednostavno probuditi?” pomislio je u jednom trenutku. „Nećete, gospodine Vulk!” odgovorio je Selcuri.
Short story. In 1947, on one of the slopes of the French mountain Dent de Crolles, a strange object appeared. It was a sort of iron pipe, about 200 meters long. The object displayed some very interesting features. Six hundred years earlier, in the area of today’s Montenegrin village of Tserovo, the same happened. The slope and the thing. So, the question is: What is the meaning of these events?
Short story. Do you remember the Watering Season? That favorite children’s tradition in the building to mark the end of the school year. You fill a can with water, go out on the balcony and empty the can on someone’s head. Good tradition, isn’t it? And do you remember Adriana? No one “watered” her, remember? Anna asked me once: “Why isn’t anybody watering Adriana?” Good question.
