Comments for Firooz and His Brother

The Magazine of Fantasy & Science FictionFirooz and His Brother: 05/02/08

The fourth story in the May issue of FSF is "Firooz and His Brother" by Alex Jeffers. So far it is my favorite and it reminds me fondly of "Exit Strategy" by K. D. Wentworth (FSF, March 2008).

"Firooz and His Brother" is a fairytale and a love story set along the caravan roads between Samarkand and Baghdad in some distant time. The story is more about Haider than it is about Firooz and the remarkable way that he enriches Firooz's life. I don't want to say more and risk spoiling a beautiful story.

According to Jeffers, "Firooz and His Brother" is a small piece from a novel he's working on called Dreamherder. I hope he finishes it some day and gets it published because I want to read it! In the meantime I am adding Jeffer's novel Safe as Houses to my wishlist.
