The Infinimata Cata(b)log

A little something for everyone. Yes, you too.

Infinimata Press isn't about focus groups or trends. It's about individual vision -- seeing only what one person can see, doing what only one person can do.

From the warm human comedy of The Four-Day Weekend to the stylish slipstream fantasy of Summerworld, the psychological twists of Welcome To The Fold, the dark underworld of Tokyo Inferno and the far-future spectacle of Flight of the Vajra, there's nothing stamped from a mold here.

We've got many new projects lined up for the future, and works from the past to be unearthed and added back in over time as well.

Learn more by visiting each book's subsite (linked above), or follow this page for updates on all new, future, and prior projects.

Barely. (More on writing draft 2 of "Shunga-Satori")

Purchase on Amazon

In his delightful film Day For Night, François Truffaut's character (a film director himself) utters a line I think about often: "Making a film is like a stagecoach ride in the old west. When you start, you are hoping for a pleasant trip. By the halfway point, you just hope to survive." Isn't that how it is for any creative project of scale? Especially a novel where you're forcing yourself to play over your head? Case in point: Shunga-Satori.

Infinimata Press: Projects: At The One-Third Road Marker

A third of the way through the major rewrite of a new book, and some lessons learned.

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2022-08-27 21:00:00 No comments


I'm now roughly one-third of the way through the draft 2 rewrite of Shunga-Satori, although the fact that I accomplished that in about a week doesn't mean the whole rewrite will take three weeks. Some parts of it will get rewritten very quickly (cut and paste with some edits), and some parts of it will be blank-page rewrites, where it might take days to complete a single scene. It'll take as long as it takes.

Infinimata Press: Projects: Re-Make, Re-Model

Which is more of a challenge -- starting a project from a completely blank page, or restarting an existing one while surrounded by its mocking scraps?

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2022-08-19 21:00:00 No comments


After only a few days' work, I've accumulated nearly 20,000 words on the second, drastically different draft of Shunga-Satori. Much of that is repurposed text from the first draft, copied sentence by sentence and altered here and there to fit the new plan. Some of it had to be written wholly new. Writing the new stuff will probably take at least twice as long as repurposing the old stuff, so I'm guessing it'll be at least another two months before we have a draft that's complete from this one. Such is the work.

I've long said something to the effect of, don't get into this stuff unless you actually relish the idea of sitting down every single day to write. The doing of it beats everything else. Certainly the talking and thinking about it. One never experiences that as thoroughly as one does when forced to rework a project this drastically. Which is more of a challenge — starting a project from a completely blank page, or restarting an existing one while surrounded by its mocking scraps?

Infinimata Press: Projects: Crash And Burn

"Shunga-Satori", draft 1 -- more like draft zero. Time to take a hatchet to it.

Well, I meant to say this week that I'd finished the first draft of Shunga-Satori, but it didn't quite work out that way. That is, I finished it, but I suspect the vast majority of what I've written isn't usable. It's been a long time since I had a failure of this magnitude, but it's happened before, and I have long been prepared for the idea that it might happen again. And here we are.

Unmortal: Behind The Scenes With 'Unmortal', Pt. 8: The Soundtrack

The soundtrack for my new novel "Unmortal".

By Serdar Yegulalp on 2022-02-11 12:00:00 No comments


In the time leading up to the release of my new novel Unmortal, I'll be making a series of posts to serve as an extended introduction to the book — its origins, its influences, its themes, its setting and characters. Enjoy.

(See all entries in this series here.)

With each book I write, there's almost always a soundtrack of some kind to go with it — music to match the mood and tempo of each scene. That said, I find I almost never listen to the music in question when writing or editing the scene in question, as I find that too distracting; there's other music I have specifically for the writing process.

Odds are you can find most, if not all, of these by way of your friendly neighborhood music streaming service.

Note that the scene descriptions may contain spoilers!
