It will ravish your senses as it transports you to a world of flying carpets, powerful ifrits, exotic foods and above all, dancing as deadly as it is beautiful.

Contributors Pia Ravenari and Anthony Panegyres joined editor Liz Grzyb in front of a crowd of friends, family and supporters.
Belly dancers from Mystique set the scene with a wonderful performance, before Anthony Panegyres read from his story "Oleander: An Ottoman Tale".
The event also gave us an opportunity to heap praise on Pia Ravenari for her wonderful cover art on Juliet Marillier's collection Prickle Moon.
Dreaming of Djinn will be commercially available in May. You can pre-order from indiebooksonline at http://www.indiebooksonline.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=141
We're really really pleased to be able to announce the contents for the forthcoming anthology, Dreaming of Djinn, edited by Liz Grzyb.
Scheherazade’s One Thousand and One Nights stories have captured imaginations for a millennia. Fairy tales and fables abound, telling of the fantastic and mysterious, the comic and dramatic.
This anthology will explore romantic Orientalism through a speculative fiction lens. You might find lost cities, magical lamps, mummies, thieves, intrepid explorers, slaves, robotic horsemen, noble queens, sorcerers, outcast princes, harems, dancers, djinn, assassins and even smart-talking camels and cats, set in exotic Persia, Egypt, Arabia, the Ottoman Empire, or a modern incarnation of these. More information on the exact mysteries contained will be revealed shortly.
