Unoriginal Tales: Ten Fantastical Stories from Oman

In the land of mountains and cardamum-filled coffee, magic lurks behind even the most urban door.

Unoriginal Tales is a group of ten fantasy stories set either in urban Oman or in a far-off remnant of the beautiful, palm-tree-studded GCC country. A girl must duel for her life in Sultan Qaboos University, a youth escapes the walking dead in the middle of Muscat Grand Mall, and a dragon, cursed with the gift of humanity, roars among the dust-devils.

There is a modern question about our Omani society behind each of these stories, and you may gasp at what you find. Enter my door at your own peril.
