A Green House with a Brick-Red Roof by Rashad Abu Shawer. A flash fiction piece from A land of Stone and Thyme: An Anthology of Palestinian Short Stories. CW: dismemberment, war, death of children. The story has folkloric undertones making it a fabulist spec fic. Hasan and Zeinab are the names of the prince and peasant girl from one of the traditional Cinderella stories from Palestine.

My stories have been nominated for Pushcart, Lammy, Palestine Book, and Best New Weird awards.
