Profile Information

First things first: welcome to Booksie!

Please feel free to send me review requests. I WILL read and review your work if you ask me to. But please be nice and comment on something of mine as well. We all need support and encouragement, so let's try and help each other.


About myself:

I'm a Soviet-born pianist and music professor from Israel, currently living in Shanghai, ethnically Jewish but religiously Christian. My interests include religions, philosophy, history, languages, and others.


About my favorite authors:

I'm intensely grateful to the great writers of the past. Besides the authors of the Bible, here are the writers that have influenced me most: Shakespeare, Swift, Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Maupassant, O. Henry, G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, Ray Bradbury, Stanislaw Lem, and the brothers Strugatsky.


About my stories:

I write short stories in what one may call the "speculative fiction" genre: projecting our reality and my thoughts about it into a (hopefully) imaginary dystopian future. All my stories are set in the same futuristic universe and have recurrent themes, locations, and characters, though not necessarily the same tone or even the same style of writing.
