Osama, by Lavie Tidhar, PS Publishing editionWe’ve just heard – via the good folks at the Zeno Agency – that the marvellous mister Lavie Tidhar has been shortlisted for the prestigious John W. Campbell Memorial Award for the best science fiction novel of the year, for his novel Osama.

The novel was originally published by PS Publishing in signed hardcover, hardcover and ebook editions, and will be published in paperback by Solaris in October.

Here at AR we’re justifiably proud to have published his entire Bookman Histories series: The Bookman, Camera Obscura and The Great Game. So there’s plenty more Lavie Tidhar story-telling to get your teeth into once you’ve devoured Osama.

Congratulations again and the very best of luck to Lavie – who’s up against some extremely strong competition on that final list – and we’ll have our fingers firmly crossed for him when the winner is announced on July 8th.
