(1955-    ) Canadian journalist and film and sf critic, resident 1977-1985 in Israel, where he served five years as an officer in the paratroop corps. His sf/horror column in the Jerusalem Post was the first such outside the sf magazines; he also had a film column in the Hebrew-language magazine Fantazia 2000. From 1986 to 1996 Teitelbaum was the Los Angeles correspondent for Cinefantastique.

His ambitious Zion's Fiction Anthology series, opening with Zion's Fiction: A Treasury of Israeli Speculative Literature (anth 2018) with Emanuel Lottem, presents a wide-ranging selection of stories from the 1980s on, some in their original English, others translated by various hands. The follow-up is More Zion's Fiction: Wondrous Tales from the Israeli ImagiNation (anth 2021). Both books have extensive introductions by the editors; a third volume was projected but owing to the death of co-editor Lottem may not appear. [PN/DRL]
