Book, Hadalish and Other Stories.

A new story collection titled “Hadalish and Other Stories” was released by Syrian writer and novelist Musa Rahum Abbas in collaboration with Dar Fadaat Publishing and Awtar Publishing.

The new book includes 25 short stories alongside an introduction and a conclusion.

According to the publisher, the stories of the collection shed light on the moral impact of the Syrian tragedy, the fates of Syrians who have been overwhelmed by the hard life inside and outside the country, and deep separation cases that have lived in the souls of this fierce war’s victims in the past 10 years.

In his book, the author sought to combine the artistic style and components with deep human observation of the Syrian situation.

The Syrian writer has two other similar Arabic collections, “Lightnings on Black Holes” (2015) and “Crossing to Midian” (2020), in addition to “White Clove”, an English collection released in the United States (2022) and translated into Arabic by Dr. Moussa al-Haloul and Dr. Sanaa al-Zaher.

Abbas has eight books including “Bilan” (novel-2011); “Obsessive–compulsive disorder: Definition, Causes, Treatment” (2012); “Your Vision Today is Tough” (poetry – 2014); “Lightnings on Black Holes” (short stories – 2015); “Execution Night of Damascus” (articles in culture, intellect, and art – 2019); and “Crossing to Midian” (short stories – 2020).
