Here’s a lovely review of The Apex Book of World SF II, edited by Lavie Tidhar, and including my own story “UnderCity”. The latter received some special attention:
…When I read this story, I immediately related it to the entire, massive, weighty corpus of information, thoughts, and events related to the Israel-Palestine conflict. Does Under Tel Aviv represent the Palestinians? Is this a story written by an Israeli who is tortured by the actions of his government? Is he writing a story to relate the sorrows both his people and the Palestinians share?
The problem with thinking along these lines is that Yaniv may not have intended this kind of interpretation at all. It may very well be just a fantastic, wonderful, weird story…
A review like that once a day – keeps the doctor away.
