Tonight, a ridiculously short Scroll while I’m away helping with my mother’s care. Please add your brilliance in the comments!
(1) ZION’S FICTION MAKES BOOK. Sheldon Teitelbaum announced, “It’s been a tough slog but we finally sold Zion’s Fiction, to Mandel-Vilar Press. The book will be published on Sept. 25, 2018.” It’s been a long road – Sheldon originally tried to fund it with a Kickstarter in 2014.
Pre-order copies from Amazon.
Showcases the best of Israeli Science Fiction and Fantasy published or otherwise available in English translation since 1970. It features an introductory survey essay, author bios, story intros and an afterword. Award-winning SF/F illustrator Avi Katz provides the front and back covers as well as illustrations for each story. There is a foreword by Robert Silverberg, America’s most revered living SF/F writer and an introduction by Dr. Aharon Hauptman, the founding editor of Fantasia 2000, the first Israeli SF/F magazine (1978-1983). The stories come Hebrew, Russian and English language magazines, like the Israeli Fantasia 2000 and Halomot B’Aspamia, or The New Yorker and Analog Science Fiction and Fact. Other sources include dedicated websites in Israel, or single-author collections. Several stories have not yet appeared anywhere
(2) CAT EXPOSE. Shocking but true….

[Thanks to JJ for some of these stories. Title credit goes to File 770 contributing editor of the day Kip W. The title is almost longer than the Scroll.]
