Super-Smashing Soviet Cars!

I love cold-war espionage novels. I love the descriptions of life behind the Iron Curtain. And I definitely love the cars – the protagonist would always drive an old and cranky Lada, and the evil KGB (or better – NKVD) officer would drive a Volga.

But only now, visiting Ukraine, I got to see these cars for real. And I love the way they look!

So there:

Learning to Draw

Armed with nothing but a pencil, a piece of paper and a very strict teacher, I charged head first into the murky depths of the world of art. Or that, at least, is how I choose to tell it.
Here’s the alternate version:

Our Friends: The Machines

This was supposed to be a simple, 30 seconds promotional video for my new book. Well, it turned out to be not so simple, and about three times as long (a whole 90 seconds! Almost a feature film!), and so much fun to make that one could explode, if one hasn’t exploded already after eating way too much, et cetera et cetera. In any case, here it is. With robots!

The Love Machine & Other Contraptions

My new story collection is here. It is tasty, nutritious and cuddly. It features seventeen short stories, twelves short-shorts, a foreword by Lavie Tidhar and cover art by Liron Ben Arzi. You can get it for your Kindle, or in paperback form. Check it out!

Here’s the press release:

Israeli author Nir Yaniv’s debut English-language collection has been released by Keith Brooke’s Infinity Plus imprint.

The Love Machine & Other Contraptions is available in Kindle and paperback formats.

Yaniv is a film-maker, musician and author based in Tel Aviv. With World Fantasy Award winner Lavie Tidhar he co-wrote 2009 novel, The Tel Aviv Dossier. It has been described by SFCrowsnest as “the most enjoyably bizarre novel I’ve read,” and was called a “neo-Gnostic apocalypse narrative for the iPod generation” by The Jewish Quarterly.

Yaniv’s stories have appeared widely in Israel, where he is considered one of the most prominent of the new wave of genre writers. His writing is often humorous, and tackles a wide variety of subjects and literary approaches. In English, his stories have previously appeared in Weird Tales, Apex Magazine, Chizine and elsewhere, and they have been translated into German, Portuguese and Polish.

The Love Machine collects Yaniv’s previously published stories as well as many new stories never published in English. Some have been translated by Lavie Tidhar, who also provides an introduction, and well as by the author himself.

Yaniv’s work has been called “hypnotic, surreal and prophetic” by World Fantasy Award winning editor Ann VanderMeer, and as “fantastic, wonderful [and] weird” by Strange Horizons.
