Gorel & The Pot-Bellied God has just been released in e-book format by PS Publishing. It costs just £1.99! In both mobi or epub formats.
There is only one truth Gorel of Goliris—gunslinger, addict, touched by the Black Kiss—is interested in: finding a way back home, to the great empire from which he had been stolen as a child and from which he had been flung, by sorcery, far across the World. It started out simple: get to Falang-Et, find the mirror, find what truth it may hold. But nothing is simple for Gorel of Goliris…When Gorel forms an uneasy alliance—and ménage à trois—with an Avian spy and a half-Merlangai thief, things only start to get complicated. Add a murdered merchant, the deadly Mothers of the House of Jade, the rivalry of gods and the machinations of a rising Dark Lord bent on conquest, and things start to get out of hand. Only one thing’s for sure: by the time this is over, there will be blood.
The press release:
Osama, published by PS Publishing in the UK, has been called “intensely moving” by Interzone, and a “powerful and disturbing political fantasy by a talent who deserves the attention of all serious readers” by Strange Horizons.
Osama tells the story of a private detective hired to locate the obscure writer of pulp novels featuring one Osama bin Laden: Vigilante. The detective’s quest takes him from Vientiane to Paris, London, New York and Kabul, across a subtly-changed world where nothing is quite as it seems – including himself.
Locus called the novel “a provocative and fast moving tale that raises good questions not only about the heritage of Al Qaeda, but about the slippage between reality and sensational fiction that sometimes seems to define our own confused and contorted experience of the last couple of decades.”
Tidhar is the author of the popular steampunk novels The Bookman and Camera Obscura, and is a current World Fantasy Award nominee for his work on the World SF Blog.
PS Publishing is the award-winning publisher of limited hardcover editions by the likes of Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, China Mieville and Lawrence Block, among others.

“Sharp, brutal, cool – yet also stunningly imaginative and perfectly realised. This is the most compelling thing I’ve read in a long time: the only bad thing was that it had to end.” – Michael Marshall Smith
Yes, ’tis true! ‘Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished, in fact!

I’m currently working on the third book, provisionally titled The Great Game – a rousing spy novel featuring, in no particular order, Harry Houdini, tripods, the Ark of the Covenant, more assassins than you can shake a stick at, Miss Havisham, Oliver Twist, airship battles, and the Comte de Rochefort. You have been warned.
