To celebrate the mass market paperback release of his World and British Fantasy Award nominated Osama
(a previous freebie), Lavie Tidhar is currently offering the ebook version of his novelette, The Last Osama
, for free on his website. The ebooks is available in both epub and mobi formats.
The Last Osama explores the world after the capture of Osama bin Laden in the Abbottabad Compound on May 2nd, 2011. In a world profoundly altered by the death, a bounty hunter is hired by the remnants of an army to travel down the Euphrates. His mission: track down and eliminate the last of the Osamas.
But how do you kill an idea?
A postscript to Lavie Tidharís World Fantasy nominated novel Osama, written after bin Ladenís capture and two months before Tidharís novel was coming out, this is a surreal tale of meta-fiction and hyper-pulp as written by both Tidhar and his pulp alter-ego, Mike Longshott. 7300 words.
