  1. I started with Osama, which is such a beautifully written book. Then I got every other book I could get my hands on. An Occupation of Angels and The Tel Aviv Dossier were incredibly good. Now I just finished The Bookman and about to start Camera Obscura. First steampunkish book I ever liked. Thank you so much for being an author!

  2. I have read a number of books by you and am so in awe…thank you for the enjoyment of your books and your amazing imagination !!
    All hail Lavie Tidhar !!

  3. Camera Obscura was the first of your works that I’ve read, and it was so intense, there really isn’t another way to describe it! Went back and got the other 2 of the trilogy, and I read your short story Selfies, and I have to say I love your writing style.
