Even though it might seem the story of a man (Omar Khayyam) or even the story of a hybrid (Sufiya Zinobia), Shame is actually the novel of a family, of a town, of a country. His unhurried, understated narration fits the novel’s tone perfectly, and his voice moves mercurially from the demure speech of Chava the Golem to the taut clip of Ahmad the Jinni. As major characters you have the protagonist and the antagonist. Even though, fantasy art, science fiction, and surreal art themes images prevail in our gallery we do not bound our online gallery to surrealism or fantasy art only.

If it were lost she would lose herself, so while she stops it from burying its teeth in those that thwart her, keeps it from poison and breaking and hammers, she does not leash or muzzle it. Like I said in my review, your memoir read like a psychological thriller. If you’re setting your world into a specific time period that is close to what the analogous Earth time period was, you answer a lot of questions for yourself.
