A Lone Bookship in a Sea of turbulent Electrones

Though a lurker on Goodreads, I still didn't like the recent change in the atmosphere and made an alternative account here just in case.

I read historical stuff, from romances to non-fiction, and paranormal.

To all the wolf (and werewolf) lovers out there - latest pic from my fav Russian nature photographer.He's married to an American WWF activist, Laura Williams. When not traveling, they live in a small Russian village near Bryansky forest national park (the woman is a hero, I tell you).

His Russian Wiki page (some of the links are in English)

http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A8%D0%BF%D0%B8%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%BA,_%D0%98%D0%B3%D0%BE%D1%80%D1%8C_%D0%9F%D0%B5%D1%82%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%B8%D1%87

 

He specializes in bears and foxes (his are the loveliest foxes and sweetest bears ever), but does an occasional wolf or wolverine or sable too, all natives of Russia :)

 

He has a volunteer that translates his blog into English:

And here is his Russian blog (with more pictures - the translation lags behind up to half a year)

The fox wedding:

He has published a couple of books with photos.

 And I'm not affiliated with either Laura or Igor, I'm just a quiet reader of his blog :)
