Inspired by the deliciously delicate book "The Haunting Of Hill House" by Shirley Jackson, Adriaan wrote a story around the basic question 'what exactly is haunting in a haunted house kind of story?'. The story is now published as "Een Vakantiehuisje Met Karakter (a holiday cottage with character)" in issue 48 of the fantastic quarterly Fantastische Vertellingen.

5 of Adriaan's early SF stories have been published in a Polish e-book with a beautiful cover: "Za tamas (Fantastyka niderlandzka w praktyce i w teorii)". In total it contains 20 stories by 6 Dutch authors, plus 5 articles more or less related to the Dutch language. The title which translates as "Behind The Dyke" presumably refers to the fact that a large part of the Netherlands is below see level. Adriaan is very happy with this publication and would like to thank Damian Olzewski for selecting his stories. His special thanks go to the translators: Damian Olzewski for "The Anomaly", Jagoda Gierska for "Awaiting Procreation", Katarzyna Dydak for "For Mother", Natalia Plaza for "Izak's Fear", and Piotr Pojnar for "Armageddon Rhapsody".

Adriaan's almost mainstream story "Tomaten (tomatoes)" has been (re)published in issue 39 of the online Dutch language magazine De Vallei.

Adriaan's rather homeless story "De Apocalyptische Dans (the apocalyptic dance)" has found asylum in issue 262 of magazine SF Terra of the Dutch Perry Rhodan SF society "Terra". It's the first story about exotheologist Hans Tijkel, who discovers new hope for mankind when he is investigating the fate of a church ship of the Mission to Deep Space Men.

Adriaan obviously won four-in-a-row, since his story "De Overlevende Van Lichting 28D" (the survivor of draft 28D) is published in issue 47 of the fabulicious magazine Fantastische Vertellingen (fantastic stories). He claims that the stories about "the town at the northern border" by Thomas Ligotti (please, please, please, republish all of his books) inspired him to write something completely different, which resulted in a story about the southern town of Silane, where nothing has remained the same.

After the first foreign language publication of "Armageddon Rhapsody" (in Estonian) last year, the story is now published in English in the June issue of online magazine Soft Cartel. It's a free read.

Adriaan scored his first hat-trick: a story in three successive issues of the thrilling magazine Fantastische Vertellingen (Fantastic Stories). The third story "Cumberley Revisited", now in issue 46, seems to be based on his memories of the typical English manor stories. According to Adriaan the location must be somewhere between Brideshead and Waverley.

Adriaan's story "Vlucht 666 uit Azerbeidzjan" (flight 666 from Azerbeidzjan) was published in issue 134 of the pseudo normal Belgian magazine Portulaan. It's one of Adriaan's stories in which God appears as himself.

Another publication in speculative fiction magazine Fantastische Vertellingen issue 45. It is the story "Vijf Gasten Om Middernacht" (Five Visitors At Midnight), a horror tale with a light touch.
