Greetings readers!

This blog has gone untouched for many months. While Hikayat Shamiyya may have gone into a state of slumber, rest assured that it will soon reawaken with more stories on and about Syria. The saga continues for the Syrian people (alas, no end is in sight), and the parallel fictional* saga of David, Nidal, Samir, Bassam, and co. has also continued. Their trials, tribulations, as well as hopes and desires, will see the light of day (even if only as glimmering pixels on your screen) very soon.

Stay tuned and thank you for your support!

* what is fact and what is fiction when it comes to our stories?
