Don’t take anything on this site too seriously.
Email: nvladivostok[at]yahoo[dot]ca. I check this account occasionally.
When Earthside, site administrator Nikolai Balakin is a film and television set designer. His most famous work can be seen here.
Nikolai’s family hail from Vladivostok but he was raised in Brisbane, Australia. His Russian is poor so don’t bother. His English isn’t great either.
Nikolai is now based in Watson Lake, Yukon. His best friend is a stray three-legged cat that sometimes lets him come close.
I have written books. Many, leather-bound books.
