Product description

Review

“An emerging master”
– LOCUS Magazine

Praise for Lavie's short fiction:
"Tidhar beautifully evokes the power of technology "
- The Fix, reviewing The Dying World (Clarkesworld Magazine)

“richly detailed characters in a well paced and well thought out story”
- Tangent reviewing The Pattern Makers of Zanzibar (Murky Depths)

"Tidhar's story reads like a drug-infused John Le Carré novel, if Le Carré wrote science fiction and dropped LSD as he pounded on the typewriter… an amazing accomplishment, and highly recommended."
- The Fix, reviewing The Shangri-La Affair (Strange Horizons)

“Sultry and crackling, Lavie Tidhar’s prose intimately evokes Ethiopian [?] weather and the high-running emotions of his characters.”
- Tangent, reviewing What The Thunder Said (Strange Horizons)

"It's stomach churning and very sweet at the same time, bizarreness and beauty like most of Tidhar's stories."
- The Fix, reviewing The Butcher and The Flykeeper - A Christmas Love Story (Murky Depths)

“The strength of this work is the setting. It is incredibly inventive and fun… a wonderful story, especially for those who enjoy the more surreal edges of speculative fiction.”
- Tangent, reviewing High Noon in Clown Town (Postscripts

"Tidhar's story is classic noir, but with its tongue firmly in its cheek from beginning to end. A very enjoyable read."
- The Fix, reviewing Hard Rain at the Fortean Cafe (Aeon)
