fontmagazine.org: "Although not actually banned, Saudia Arabia’s first science fiction novel H W J N, more easily pronounced as ‘Hawjan’, is causing problems for its creator. Official unease about its contents have meant that the religious police have been confiscating copies from a number of bookshops in the country despite it being a bestseller there.

Written by Ibraheem Abbas, and translated from Arabic to English by Yasser Bahjatt (co-founders of Yatakhayaloon, aka The League of Arabic SciFiers), the novel is less science fiction and more science fantasy, dealing as it does with a modernday jinn who finds himself falling in love with a human and joins battle against demons and sorcerers on her behalf." Rad on

Hawjan is available at no cost at amazon.de or amazon.com as a kindle ebook
