The just released third novel by Tennison Long, Of Tribe & Empire, is dedicated to the founder and president of the author’s fan club The Congregation, founded in Christchurch, New Zealand, in 2018, by so-called secret fan Ansi Alibava, who at the young age of 24 was killed in the Christchurch Mosque Massacre.

RIP Ansi Alibava (1995-2019)

American writer Tennison Long is the author of Glorious Verve, When We Ran The Master Plan, and Of Tribe & Empire. He likes to take his readers on a psychological thrill ride, blending the macabre with the sublime, sewing the seams of mental confusion with emotional clarity. He offers a uniquely imagined prose that sustains moments of sputtering haunted brilliance. He lives in Northern California and would love to hear from you.
