A good week for international sf, by the looks of things – not only the Jean-Claude Dunyach story over at Fantasy, but also Nira and I, by new writer Shweta Narayan, over at Strange Horizons.
From her website:
I’m a writer, academic, and cultural crazy-quilt; I was born in India and lived in Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, and Scotland before moving to California. I grew up reading folk tales and fairy tales from all over the world, so my fictional landscape is rather mixed.
She also keeps a blog on Livejournal.
