The Emoticon Generation by Guy Hasson

The Emoticon Generation

Guy Hasson's The Emoticon Generation features seven stories about life-changes brought about by our new electronic generation: stories that blur the borders between our world and science fiction, stories that make you ask, 'Has this already happened? Is that actually true?'

In this collection you'll find a man who, after losing his fiancée to a terrible accident, seeks to learn if true love really exists; a girl, hardly a teen, who searches for her father only to learn a terrible truth about herself; a man who wants to immortalize his genius but ends up tricking himself out of it; an old hero whose entire life unravels when the truth about his heroic act is revealed; a harmless birthday gift that triggers a profound search into the depths of a young couple's relationship; and more.

Guy Hasson is one of the freshest new science fiction authors out there, with a knack for finding the human heart in the biggest ideas.

"Hasson has a scalpel-sharp intellect which, allied to great ideas and a superb story-telling ability, makes for a wonderfully entertaining collection." --Eric Brown, author of Helix and Ghostwriting

"Guy Hasson writes with a deceptive smoothness, in the assured hand of an Old Master, and with a deep concern for the big questions of science fiction. You need to read him." --Lavie Tidhar, World Fantasy Award winning author of Osama.

Guy Hasson

My name is Guy Hasson. I'm an author, a playwright, and a filmmaker.

Most recently, two of my books came out at the end of 2012: The Emoticon Generation and Secret Thoughts. Check out The Emoticon Generation blog tour with reviews, interviews, and giveaways.

I'm currently finishing an independent, underground epic sci-fi film, which I wrote and directed, called The Indestructibles. The short film (45 min.) will be released for free on the web. Check for updates in the blog as well as the film journal.

I'm currently serializing my fantasy fairy-tale novel, Tickling Butterflies, on this blog. The book is created out of 128 independent (supposedly) fairy tales that for one epic fairy tale. A new fairy tale is being published every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Tickling Butterflies translation into Hebrew will be published in Israel later this year.

Last but not least, I have a new start-up called New Worlds Comics. New Worlds Comics is an independent comic book publisher that only publishes digital comics and will be available initially as an app for the iPad, iPhone, and Android. Our first title will be released in July, 2013, and is a laugh-out-loud comedy called Goof.

Enjoy the unknown.
