How neat is that!!!!
Even neater is the fact that my story "The Fish of Al-Kawthar's Fountain" which is set in Syria is in this book and Syria deserves to have a big light shone on it, however it can right now. Whenever I think of this story I think back to my time in fragrant-rich Damascus and also in Homs. In particular the night I spent on Homs' urban streets with a family at 3 in the morning. Urban streets that are now a war zone but were once a haven for corn-cob munching families and strolling midnight camels. May it soon become a haven once more.
