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.

here the two writers spin quite the spell of prose. Combined with the capacity of both writers to bring characters, both men and women, alive on the page, and to evoke a sense of place and mood with sublime brushstrokes, there is much to relish in Midnight and Moonshine.

We're told that the bookshop sold out of its entire stock for the night. The incredible Jack Dann was MC, and the amazing Cat Sparks was on hand to take some fabulous pictures.
