Lavie Tidhar

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 CarrĂ© novel,
if Le CarrĂ© 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)
