New: The Emoticon Generation by Guy Hasson

The Emoticon Generation by Guy Hasson

Guy Hasson’s The Emoticon Generation features seven stories about life-changes brought about by our new electronic generation: stories that blur the borders between our world and science fiction, stories that make you ask, ‘Has this already happened? Is that actually true?’

In this collection you’ll find a man who, after losing his fiancée to a terrible accident, seeks to learn if true love really exists; a girl, hardly a teen, who searches for her father only to learn a terrible truth about herself; a man who wants to immortalize his genius but ends up tricking himself out of it; an old hero whose entire life unravels when the truth about his heroic act is revealed; a harmless birthday gift that triggers a profound search into the depths of a young couple’s relationship; and more.

Guy Hasson is one of the freshest new science fiction authors out there, with a knack for finding the human heart in the biggest ideas.
“Hasson has a scalpel-sharp intellect which, allied to great ideas and a superb story-telling ability, makes for a wonderfully entertaining collection.” —Eric Brown

“Guy Hasson writes with a deceptive smoothness, in the assured hand of an Old Master, and with a deep concern for the big questions of science fiction. You need to read him.” —Lavie Tidhar, World Fantasy Award winner for Best Novel 2012

The Emoticon Generation by Guy Hasson is available in ebook format from:


New: The Love Machine & other contraptions by Nir Yaniv

The Love Machine and other contraptions by Nir Yaniv“Each story is a bright flash of odd brilliance… unmissable.” – Lavie Tidhar, World Fantasy Award winning author of Osama.

What happens when every wish you make is immediately granted by God? If you could use the power of music to travel through time? If your body was the battleground for a strange, alien invasion?

In this, his debut collection in English, Israeli author Nir Yaniv shows his remarkable versatility, collecting stories from over a decade of writing and a wide range of the fantastic. In turns humorous, lyrical, profound – but always entertaining – these are the haunting tales of an author at the height of his power.

“A fantastic, wonderful, weird story … Speaks very powerfully to the human spirit.” – Strange Horizons, on “Undercity”

“Hypnotic, surreal and prophetic, Nir Yaniv’s “The Dream of the Blue Man” is a story you won’t soon forget.” – World Fantasy Award winner Ann VanderMeer
