Exact release dates are a little wibbly-wobbly, but soooon! As in late this month, early next. Just think of me as a flopping flail fish until then. :D Vassily is a retelling of the Russian fairytale Vasilisa the Beautiful, reset as a science fiction novel in the ESTO Universe.

Vassily Belikov, composer and pampered son of privilege, suffered neurological damage in the accident that killed his father. Resentful of his invalid status, he lives as a recluse, dependent on his mother, until the day she brings home a new husband with two sons of his own.
His mother’s kidnapping leaves him at the mercy of his amoral stepfather. Fighting addiction, fear, and physical shortcomings, he's forced to seek out the criminal mastermind Baba Yaga for a replacement part. While she agrees to a deal if he beats his addiction, paranoia infuses her household. Drawn to her fierce youngest son, certain his actions are carefully measured, Vassily must find the courage to face his fears and his desires if he expects to survive.
