My Hebrew story שירה (Shira) is published today in both its Hebrew original and the English translation in Samovar, a new magazine for translated speculative fiction.

You can read it in Hebrew or English.

The story was originally published by editor Nir Yaniv at the Israeli SFF Society website, and then, in its English translation, in Ellen Datlow’s anthology The Del Rey Book of Science Fiction and Fantasy.

The translation is my own.

The poems quoted are mostly taken from my Hebrew poetry collection, שאריות מאלהים (Remnants of God) – a rare book if ever there was one! Though copies do crop up every now and then…

Of my Hebrew fiction, this is one of my favourites, and I’m delighted to see it appear again!
