Reviews

Standalone

New Atlantis
“A complex, layered and hugely enjoyable story.”

Bestsf

“Lovely work.”

Locus

“Excellent… not a word is wasted”

Sfcrowsnest

“Amazing”

1000yearplan

A Man Lies Dreaming
“Complex, elusive and intriguing...”

The Jerusalem Post

“Nasty, clever, waspish and witty… a brilliant and potent thought experiment.”

The Sunday Herald

“Bold and unnerving.”

NPR

“Damn good...”

Jewish Book Council

“A wholly original Holocaust story: as outlandish as it is poignant.”

Kirkus (starred review)

“A vital, brilliant novel”

Barnes & Noble SFF Blog

“Poetic & terrible… quite incredible.”

Tor.com

Martian Sands
“Feels more like early Kurt Vonnegut… both writers seem to channel the same prankster glee that covers deep despair. MARTIAN SANDS crackles with energy and life while poking at some big questions about the nature of reality.”

Locus

“A totally mad and very enjoyable book. The closest comparison I can think of is Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse 5 – Tidhar does the same thing of taking a overwhelmingly serious subject (in this case the Holocaust; in Slaughterhouse 5, the bombing of Dresden) and applying to it a surreal and farcical lens – using humour to highlight tragedy, which is of course what the best theatre does. ”

E.J. Swift, author of Osiris

“MARTIAN SANDS is the work of a serious writer who writes entertainingly, who can be funny, political, speculative, provocative and charming, all at the same time.”

Stephen Theaker

Novellas

An Occupation of Angels
“A breathless adventure story, finely crafted and rammed home with the assured confidence of an author very much in his stride.”

SFRevue.com

“Sharp, brutal, cool--yet also stunningly imaginative and perfectly realised."

Michael Marshall, bestselling author of The Straw Men trilogy

“Fast moving, powerfully phantasmagoric fantasy.”

Adam Roberts

“A novella of blistering, ballistic energy and ferocious cleverness.”

James Lovegrove
