New Book – ‘Secret Thoughts’

February 20, 2011

My new book, ‘Secret Thoughts’, is now ready for pre-order by Apex Books.

Secret Thoughts

Secret Thoughts, by Guy Hasson

From the website:

Synopsis:

Secret Thoughts is a startling examination of sexuality, motherhood, and society told in three novellas by Geffen Award-winning author Guy Hasson.

In “The Perfect Girl”, Alexandra Watson is a newcomer to Indianapolis Academy of Psionic Studies. By touch alone, she can delve into your memories, desires, insecurities… everything that makes a person. When she bonds with Professor Parks, her world grows complicated. Soon, she’s reading the residual memories of a recently dead and tracking down the mystery of her demise.

“The Linguist” continues the story of psionic-enabled women, except now the author has moved us several years in the future. The US government has determined that people like Rachel Akerman are a threat to the nation and orders countrywide extermination of those with psionic powers. When a G-man uncovers Rachel and offers her a chance to help her country in exchange for her life, what choice is she left with? Rachel finds herself attempting to communicate with a frightened and imprisoned alien life form for the military.

Finally, in “Most Beautiful Intimacy”, Guy Hasson posits “What if a woman were psychically attached to an embryo growing within her uterus?” Set years after the previous novella, Susan DiOrio and her husband hide in a remote region of Montana. Cut off from the world, all they have is each other, and that is threatened when Susan becomes pregnant. A psionic has never successfully given birth to a child. Poignant and urgent, Hasson effectively explores the fear and wide-eyed amazement associated with having a baby.

These three novellas will open your eyes, raise uncomfortable questions, and make you fall in love with the protagonists three times over.

September 12, 2010

The magazine Mammon (‘Finance’), which appears in the daily newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, has an article about web-only video series. When covering Israeli web-series, it mentions my online daily series, ‘Seeing Red’: “Exceptional in this dry wasteland is ‘Seeing Red’, a short suspense series created by Guy Hasson.”

A New Book, ‘Secret Thoughts’, Will Be Published in 2011

May 23, 2010

My new book ‘Secret Thoughts’ will be published by the Apex Book Company in mid-2011. From the Apex blog:

I’m pleased to announce that we have bought SECRET THOUGHTS by Israeli author Guy Hasson. SECRET THOUGHTS is a trio of inter-connected novellas concerning a group of people who have the power to read minds. Each novella extrapolates what it might be like to read the minds of the dead, of an alien, and of an unborn child.

Due to a massive backlog, publication of Guy’s book will not be until mid-2011. We’ve had this on the submission shelf for a while and am happy that Guy was still interested in giving it a go months later.

The observant among you will remember that Guy has a story in The Apex Book of World SF.

Guy Hasson (Hebrew: גיא חסון‎) is an Israeli playwright, film maker and science fiction writer. While he writes plays and scripts mainly in Hebrew, his fiction is almost exclusively written in English. He is a two-time winner of the Israeli Geffen Award: he won it in 2003 for his story “All-of-Me” and in 2005 for his story “The Perfect Girl”. Since 2006 he has focused on production of original films, including the feature-length Heart of Stone. (from Wikipedia)
