The Pauper Prince and the Eucalyptus Jinn
I have the great pleasure of working on the beautiful fantasy novelette “The Pauper Prince and the Eucalyptus Jinn” by USMAN T. MALIK. Sharif, a disenchanted young Pakistani professor, grew up and lives in the United States, but is haunted by the magical, mystical tales his grandfather told him of a princess and a Jinn who lived in Lahore when the grandfather was a boy. After the passing of his grandfather, Sharif decides to unveil the mysteries by tracing his root in Pakistan. You can read the story here on tor.com.
Big thanks to AD Irene Gallo as always and Usman Malik!
