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.

The alterna-past setting and backstory for my new novel, 'Fall Of The Hammer'.By Serdar Yegulalp on 2020/08/01 17:00
Back in Part One of this series, I talked about how I scraped my new novel's ideas from a couple of long-dead ones. The ideas themselves mutated drastically once I had them together under a new roof.
How my new novel 'Fall Of The Hammer' started from a project I'd abandoned over twenty-five years ago.By Serdar Yegulalp on 2020/07/27 17:00
Once upon a time, when dinosaurs roamed the earth and the screech of dial-up networking was a common sound, I hatched an idea for a novel called (drumroll, please) The Fall Of The Hammer. The core idea: At some undefined time in history, the world shattered into a mosaic of times and places, each interpenetrating with the other to some degree. Against this backdrop, there was a ... uh ...
You see the problem. I had a setting, but no story. But I tried to write one anyway, and got about sixty thousand words in before hitting a brick wall and giving up.

Some progress notes in re the latest novel, Fall Of The Hammer:
On new work in progress.By Serdar Yegulalp on 2020/06/12 17:00
When one door closes, the saying goes, another elephant-sized hole gets blown clean out of the wall next to it. Or something.
This week I turned copies of The Fall Of The Hammer over to my readers, took a deep breath, and opened a new, blank wiki. Because over the course of the last few weeks, as I was yanking commas and restoring clauses in Hammer, a new idea hath cometh forth-eth.
If I was a filmmaker, my latest book would be at what could be the "answer print" phase. Done, but not quite *done*.By Serdar Yegulalp on 2020/05/10 17:00
Sitting on the desktop next to the window where I type this is the first PDF distilled from the recently completed fifth draft of The Fall Of The Hammer, my new novel. If I was a filmmaker, this is what I'd call the "answer print" phase: the first version of the film delivered to the studio with sound and picture fully synced and with color correction, but still pending final changes like editing for pacing.
It's always a strange feeling to have in front of you a file that you could in theory just sign off on and deliver as-is to your readers. Very few, if any, story changes remain to be made. I've gone as far as I can go as I am right now with that part of it; the rest would be pending feedback from my hand-picked crew of test readers, or some eleventh-hour-and-fifty-ninth-minute revelation on my part. But I know there's still some work left to be done. I've waited this long to finish it, I can wait a little longer.
On keeping the edit wheels turning on "Fall Of The Hammer".By Serdar Yegulalp on 2020/03/29 08:00
So is this the fourth draft of The Fall Of The Hammer that I'm working on now, or the fifth? Do you blame me from being in a murk about something like that, when it feels as if the whole world is melting into puddles under our feet? But hey, at least the edit wheels keep turning. And I tried out an editing trick that proved to be quite the winner.
What happens when you stop in the middle of a draft and rewind to the beginning, and why.By Serdar Yegulalp on 2019/12/04 17:00
I'm very close to the end of the first — well, second, more on that in a sec — draft of Fall Of The Hammer. I say "first/second" because I started it earlier this year, got about two-thirds of the way through, stopped, wound back to the beginning, and started rewriting it as if it was a second draft. This is not a common pattern for me; the vast majority of the time I just blast all the way through and then fix it to avoid disrupting momentum. But a funny thing happened on the way to Act Five.
Science fiction, rebooted.
