The French edition of A Man Lies Dreaming, Quand un Homme Rêve, is published this week by Terra Nova. It was translated by Benoît Domis.
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.
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!
A Man Lies Dreaming is officially out in Spain today! Published by Kailas Editorial as Un hombre sueña despierto, it is translated by Puerto Barruetabeña Díez, and available everywhere (here’s the inevitable Amazon page though).
More new editions of A Man Lies Dreaming are forthcoming this year in Japan, Israel and France.
I will be Guest of Honour at this year’s Deepcon 18 in Italy. I’m told I should already start dieting in preparation! The convention takes place in the small town of Fiuggi – the artist Michelangelo apparently spoke very highly of taking the water there, though I am told he won’t be attending.
This is my first appearance in Italy, though hopefully not the last – Osama came out in Italy in 2013 (as Wanted) and A Man Lies Dreaming came out last year (as Wolf) and was nominated for the Rome Prize, and I have a new novel coming out in Italy in the near future from Mondadori.
Hooray! This is the first of several international events I’m doing this year, and it’s lovely to be visiting Italy again after too many years. I once spent a memorable night sleeping rough in a Rome train station… so having an actual bed will likely make a change!
Congratulations to Sarah Anne Langton, whose exceptional cover for Central Station is nominated for the BSFA Award for Best Artwork!
Sarah and I are hard at work on a new art project – hopefully show it off soon!
Kailas Editorial are releasing A Man Lies Dreaming (un hombre Sueña despierto) in Spain in March, and they’ve just revealed the cover! Here it is!
Rejoice! The story I modestly like to call the world’s first Jewish space opera is now live and free to read! The Old Dispensation is now online at Tor dot com, though you can also buy the modestly-priced J-book version.
The Yom Kippur–class Adjudicator Starship Vey Is Mir left the planet of New Jerusalem at twelve oh five hundred hours Temple Mean Time, en route to the planet Kadesh… continue reading
