The Tel Aviv Dossier – first edition! – as sighted on a shelf at the excellent Borderlands Books store in San Francisco.

The Tel Aviv Dossier, the weird apocalypse novel I wrote with Lavie Tidhar, is now available in a new Kindle edition. The spiffy new cover art is bySarah Anne Langton. You can get it on Amazon or Amazon UK. Into the city of Tel Aviv the whirlwinds come, and nothing will ever be the same. Through a city torn apart by a violence they cannot comprehend, three disparate people—a documentary film-maker, a yeshiva student, and a psychotic fireman—must try to survive, and try to fin
This was supposed to be a simple, 30 seconds promotional video for my new book. Well, it turned out to be not so simple, and about three times as long (a whole 90 seconds! Almost a feature film!), and so much fun to make that one could explode, if one hasn’t exploded already after eating way too much, et cetera et cetera. In any case, here it is.

My novelette, UnderCity, will be included in the special pre-order edition of The Apex Book of World SF 2, edited by Lavie Tidhar. I liked the first collection (which also featured a story of mine), and I believe Lavie has done a decent job with this new one. Check it out! #fantasy #sciencefiction #shortstory #telaviv
Don’t know anything about the Fnools? Don’t worry, they don’t know anything about you either. So far.
Get ready, then. Read a few. It might save your life. A new one was just born. It’s here. #weird #sciencefiction #fnool #shortstory #fantasy
I feel that it is my duty, as a citizen and a person, to report the invasion of the Fnools. They are here. They hide in plain sight. And they have a terrible, horrible weapon. You can hide, but you can’t run. #weird #sciencefiction #fnools #shortstory #fantasy
My short story, The Word of God, was just re-published by ChiZine in their Chiaroscuro project. As it happens, today is Israel’s independence day, which makes this a bit bitter-sweet: it reminds me how far we are from having true independence – independence from god. I mean, I like god in its proper place – literature. As for its place in real life, I can only quote B. A. Baracus: “I pity the fools!” #fantasy #religion #shortstory #weird

About a year ago, a book I’ve written with Lavie Tidhar, The Tel Aviv Dossier, has been published by ChiZine Publications in Canada. This week I’m happy to announce the release of the Hebrew edition, by Odyssey Press. #fantasy #novel #sciencefiction #weird
The Boston Book Bums blog has just reviewed The Tel Aviv Dossier: The book’s strength comes from its unapologetic balance of surrealism and biblical authenticity. While some may get hung up on the weirdly comedic moments juxtaposed by death and revelation, the strangeness is actually magnified by realizing the writing team might be showing us new books of the Bible, but with a dark slap stick touch. And an interview with Lavie and myself has just been published by SF Signal,
The city in the sky floats on a too black, too high and mostly too heavy cloud. Both emit a constant rain of sewer and trash on everything unlucky enough to be positioning underneath, and especially on the cumulus villages, whose poor inhabitants never get to quietly herd their wooly clouds and make a decent living. From time to time, delegations of angry villagers come to the city and register a complaint, but no one has the tiniest clue what they’re talking about. The weath
