Gafla, Ofir Touché

Tagged: Author

(1968-    ) Israeli author whose first novel, Olam Hasof (2004; trans Mitch Ginsburg as The World of the End 2013), begins as an Afterlife fantasy (for Afterlife see The Encyclopedia of Fantasy under links below), with the protagonist's suicide, which he figures will reunite him with his beloved dead wife. The various worlds into which he plunges, however, are engineered according to the precepts of various genres (see Equipoise), including sf proper, Horror in SF, noir detective thriller, and love romance. The translation is vivid and competent. [JC]
