Quill Awards Finalist

Big awards news--my story collection, Getting to Know You, was named yesterday as a finalist for the 2007 Quill Book Awards in SF/Fantasy! In case you haven't heard about the Quills, this is only their third year, and they seem to be an attempt to put some glitz into literary awards. The award ceremony is the only nationally televised book award ceremony in the US and will originate from Jazz at Lincoln Center and include celebs, a red carpet, and a gala celebration. Looks like I may need to buy a tux.

Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I'd like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher's blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

Google refused advertising our site and Amazon deleted reviews of Obadiah's book. Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

Please help us spread Obadiah's message, and mention the blog in one of your posts, or link to us. We would greatly appreciate your comments at

Best wishes,

Eugene Gershin – Israeli Uncensored News
