Twitter Event: #9898 – an SF Experiment on Twitter

September 27, 2012

Stand-up comedians experiment in night clubs. They try out different things on small audiences, to see how people react to it. They try different things on different nights to hone their act and to see how the audience reacts.

Seems to me that Twitter is a great place for an SF author to do the same thing. One such experiment is going on right now, called #9898.

I’m not going to tell you anything about it. Go read it. It’s being updated daily, and may in the future be updated weekly (we’ll see how the experiment goes).

If you’re reading this long after it was written, check out the tag: #9898.

Here’s my Twitter, check it out: Vision Etc.

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)
