I'm a Soviet-born musician from Israel, currently living in Shanghai, ethnically Jewish but religiously Christian. My interests include religions, philosophy, history, languages, and others. Among my favorite authors are Dostoevsky, G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, O. Henry, Ray Bradbury, and Stanislaw Lem.
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.
