We had the absolute pleasure of reading an ARC of The Bruising of Qilwa, a Persian-inspired secondary-world fantasy by Naseem Jamnia. As a treat, we are thrilled to share an interview with the author along with an excerpt of the book. The Bruising of Qilwa came out August 9, 2022 with Tachyon Publications and can be purchased at this link.

You can read the full interview by purchasing Issue 2.3!
