Lavie Tidhar is the award winning author of the novel Osama. He’s recently published Martian Sands and The Violent Century will be released in October. In addition to novels he writes a blog, comics, and novellas, and these are his good things.
Good things to read.
Some recent genre books I read/blurbed.
Osiris by E.J. Swift. Literary climate-change science fiction set on the world’s last (floating) city.
Conservation of Shadows by Yoon Ha Lee. A collection of excellent science fiction short stories, many with a military theme – my favourite was perhaps “The Bones of Giants” – mecha-skeletons!
Good things to watch.
Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace. No one has ever done a retro-bad sci-fi series as well as the fictional “Garth Marenghi: writer, director, visionary, also actor!”
The Wire. Well, goes without saying. I’m on a rewatch at the moment…
The Good Wife. So refreshing to see a series with real women characters taking the spotlight. Can’t wait for the next season to start.
Good things to use.
A decent chef’s knife – makes all the difference!
Weightlessbooks – a boutique e-book store specialising in SF/F.
Icy Tower 2. How else to waste some productive time. Addictive.
