Unknown Worlds: Jews in Science Fiction and Fantasy


D.H. Aire, guest speaker

July 14, 2020 @ 7:00 pm

United States + Google Map

Inspired by the stories of Jewish communities in places as varied as Ethiopia, Kaifeng in China, and the Bene Menasha of India, D.H. Aire sought out true, exaggerated, and invented stories with Jewish characters and themes — and not finding enough to his liking, began writing his own. He will talk of his own Jewish and Science Fiction & Fantasy (SF&F) journey, and about Jews in his favorite and not so favorite SF&F stories. We’ll end the meeting with questions and answers.

D.H. Aire, the author of the Highmage’s Plight and Terran Catalyst Series, has published 19 books, with subtle or less than subtle Jewish themes and ideas. He is a member of SFWA (Science Fiction Writers of America) and has a degree in Judaic Studies. His most recent release is Nowhere to Go But Mars (a novella), a reverse Ellis Island immigrant experience tale. To learn more about him and his books, visit his website at dhaire.net.

Do you have a favorite topic that you’d like to discuss with the BT community? Are you an “expert” in a particular subject? As long as it fits broadly under the heading of Jewish values and histories, we’d love to hear your ideas for future discussions. Please contact us at info@beittikvah.org.
