Somewhere! / هُناك, by Ibraheem Abbas

An sf novel by Saudi writer Ibraheem Abbas, which the author signed for me at Loncon last year. It's short and digestible, about a young man who finds himself in a Somewhere which could be a dream world, could be a virtual reality, could be time travel; it is rooted in contemporary online and gaming culture, yet also brings in certain important historical personalities (some European, one East Asian), all told in a breathless contemporary voice, full of exclamation marks. (Could have done with a little more editing for correct English.) I look forward to reading the other book I have by the same writer.
