Join Costi Gurgu for the long-awaited launch of his book,
RecipeArium, declared by “The Word” Magazine
“the most original piece of fiction in modern literature”,
and called by Robert J. Sawyer “a brilliant, haunting tale
— this is the new new weird”.
I am delighted to announce that one of my designs
have been mentioned in the New York Times by
the one and only Margaret Atwood. Her opinion was that:
“Water Is…,” this beautifully designed book”.
My decade in Canada allowed me to discover a lot of
misconceptions, omissions and twisted truths held by
North American readers about European speculative fiction.
Let me tell you a story about me and the world I grew up in.
This is the online home of Costi Gurgu, writer of fantasy and science fiction (and the occasional horror piece). His novel Recipearium, out now from White Cat Publications (published in Romania by Tritonic), has won the Nemira, Vladimir Colin and Atelier Kult Awards. Costi has further developed the Recipearium world in a series of short stories such as Secret Recipes, published in the Tesseracts 17 anthology, EDGE SF&F Publishing.
His short fiction has appeared in several venues, such as Playboy, Tesseracts, The Mammoth Book of Dieselpunk, Ages of Wonder, Dra Horizons, Street Magick, Hologram Tales, Jurnalul SF, Anticipatia, Art Panorama, and many other anthologies and magazines from Europe and North America.
Costi lives in Toronto, Canada, where he works as an art director and illustrator. He has a strong interest in visual arts and exercised it in Europe as the art director of several life style and fashion magazines, as well as a publishing house.
