A powerful century-old soldier returns to Earth from the Otherworld and attempts to reclaim his former life in this thrilling fantasy novel.
For 130 years, Kreig Wiedermann has fought: first, as a teenage recruit for the Holy Order; then, as a soldier for the Empire; and most recently, as an immortal godlike warrior devoted only to avenging himself. The lust of combat is all he knows—until a portal opens on the battlefield and brings him back to the world from which he came.
Despite the decades Kreig has survived in the Otherworld, only ten short years have passed on Earth, which means the life he considered lost forever might still be waiting for him. But rejoining humankind won’t be easy.
For one thing, the International Otherworld Combat and Research Organization isn’t about to let a monstrous stranger with an unfathomably high level just wander around without first making sure he won’t wreak havoc on the planet. For another, Kreig has been tortured, imprisoned, betrayed, and hunted for years; he’s got his own demons to confront before he can reunite with his family and take up a normal life.
Plus, there’s the little problem that not everyone thinks Kreig should be allowed to even dream of rehabilitation. And no matter how much he tries to leave his past behind, there are forces threatening to drag him back into his bloody legacy . . .
A bold and clever twist on a classic isekai tale, Returning to No Applause, Only More of the Same is a dramatic, character-driven fantasy that proves the old adage “There’s no place like home.”

It isn't easy writing fiction when you're a vaguely humanoid lump of boiled potato and flour with a head filled with nothing but salted meat. It doesn't help that I haven't even got any fingers, but we all have to make do, right? My teenage years, a time I spent writing words so abhorrent and Godless I could only post them to RoyalRoad, was supposed to change that. It didn't. Still fingerless, but now; published. It does get better after all. Horror has always had a special place in my heart, inspired by the circumstances of my starchy situation. Hence, I write what I know, ergo: the horrors. Fantasy, drama, slice of life, action, adventure... Any genre can do with a touch of terror. Outside of all that, I remain steadfast in not dropping out of Criminology, though I am hanging on by a thread. I also enjoy the loud and proud sounds created by blowing raspberries into brass tubes, and making lines go swoosh. In short, I am an ordinary author of ordinary works.
