To Die For

Find me an Arab socialist woman whose mother is a Shi'i and whose father is a Sunni or vice versa, who thinks like me, and who writes like Shelley in The Revolt of Islam. If her name is Fatima, it will be great. If she looks like Leila Khaled, she is to die for.

Dear fellow bloggers and blog-readers

Just to let you know, a new novel is being serialised at I have been serialising it for the past month or so, but it’s not too late to join the fray – we are only up to Chapter VI, so it won’t take you long to catch up.

Loosely speaking, this was my attempt at a Marxist novel, though it ended up as something quite different. But anyway: the right place for a novel is not in the offices of a major publishing company. It should be freely available for people to read as nature intended. I would be very pleased to hear any comments, positive or otherwise, and would appreciate you spreading the word to friends, colleagues and other interested parties if you like what you read.

Thanks, and keep up the good work.
