Десет Цинични Есета (Популярно Мировъзрение) — изцяло
Pre-release—available April 21, 2019. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 74,340. Language: Bulgarian. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
In Bulgarian. Това е философска книга, но тя е популярна и без особени термини, така че е достъпна за всички. В определена степен цинизмът е мировъзрение, което не чете морал (даже обратното), и не идеализира нещата, но, независимо от това, предлага сериозен поглед за света. Според мен тя би трябвало да е интересна за всички млади хора (а и за възрастните), но все пак не е развлекателно четиво.
Десять Циничных Эссе (популярное мировоззрение) — целиком
Pre-release—available April 11, 2019. Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 67,850. Language: Russian. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
In Russian. Это философская книга, но она популярная, без особых терминов, так что доступная для всех. В определенной мере цинизм это мировоззрение, которое не читает мораль (а даже напротив), и не идеализирует вещи, но, тем не менее, дает серьезный взгляд на мир. По моему она должна быть интересной для всех молодых людей (а и для взрослых), но все таки не для развлекательного чтения.
Ten Cynical Essays (Popular Worldview) — entirely
Pre-release—available April 1, 2019. Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 83,730. Language: English. Categories: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Contemporary philosophy, Nonfiction » Philosophy » Essays
This is philosophical book, but it is popular and without special terms so that is accessible for all. To a certain extent the cynicism is worldview that does not preach moral and does not idealize the things, but, still, gives serious look about the world. In my view it must be interesting for all young people (and for the older, too), but nevertheless it is not entertainment reading.
Любопитни Манифести (политистика) — изцяло
Pre-release—available March 21, 2019. Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 58,400. Language: Bulgarian. Categories: Nonfiction » Social Science » Political science, Essay » Political
In Bulgarian! Този жанр аз наричам "политистика", като всичко свързано със социалната политика. В дадения случай това е един вид политическа фантастика или различни утопии, но и критика на демокрацията. Книгата има вид на сборник от Манифести на дузина измислени политически партии (и две приложения). Те са най-различни по характер, основно иронични или пародийни, но съвсем разумни и научни.

Pre-release—available March 11, 2019. Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 53,630. Language: Russian. Categories: Nonfiction » Social Science » Political science, Essay » Political
In Russian! Этот жанр я называю "политистикой", как всё что можно сказать о социальной политике. В данном случае это как бы политическая фантастика или разные утопии, но и критика демократии. Книга представляет собой сборник Манифестов дюжины выдуманных политических партий (плюс две приложения). Они самые разные по характеру, в основном иронические или сатиричные, но вполне разумные и научные.
Curious Manifestos (politistics) — entirely
Pre-release—available March 1, 2019. Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 67,050. Language: English. Categories: Nonfiction » Social Science » Political science, Essay » Political
This genre I call “politistics”, as everything that can be said about social politics. In this case it is a kind of political science fiction, or various utopias, but critique of the democracy, too. The book looks like collection of Manifestos of dozen political parties (plus two supplements). They are quite different, mainly ironical or even satirical, but entirely reasonable and scientific.

It will be particularly interesting to watch the ingenuities of the politicians in the new Parliament in producing schemes that will look like electoral reform and yet leave the profession still active for mischief...Parliament throughout the next session, though it may make the angels weep, is certain to afford much entertainment to every mundane observer of human disingenuousness.

Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 37,850. Language: English. Published: March 2, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Biography » Autobiographies & Memoirs
The author wrote this book out of gratitude to all those who assisted him and showed him kindness, as well as to the country that became his new home. He identifies and defines “the mystery of America”: elements of U.S. society that he sees as unique and of special value. With joy, humor, and positivity, he paints a picture of America that we can hope is part of our reality as well as an ideal.
