My private Robert Sheckley

pictures and video collection

(probably the largest Sheckley picture collection of the web)

For the delocalized tribe of RS

From 1999 to 2005 I've shared a lot of quality time with Robert Sheckley, spending time with him both in my hometown Genova, Italy, as well as travelling trough Europe together and attending several SF conventions. On this page I've put together my pictures collectiom, to be shared with all the people of the delocalized tribe in the world who love him, have been in tune with his visions, and will forever keep his memory inside their minds.

Portal 2005, April - Kiev
Ukranian science fiction convention "Portal 2005" + following tour through Ukraine with Robert Sheckley, visiting Uman, Odessa and Kharkov.


This article was published by an Ukranian newspaper when Sheckley and I visited Odessa, April 2005. The picture shows our meeting with the vice-mair of the town. The article reports among other things about a statement made by Sheckley during the press conference in the Odessa municipality announcing his cooperation with me for writing a novel together. Unfortunatelly, this universe didn't offer us time enough to complete this project...
