Iraq + 100 : the first anthology of science fiction to have emerged from Iraq by Ḥasan Balāsim( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a calm and serene world, one has the luxury of imagining what the future might look like. Now try to imagine that future when your way of life has been devastated by forces beyond your control. Iraq + 100 poses a question to Iraqi writers (those who still live in that nation, and those who have joined the worldwide diaspora): What might your home country look like in the year 2103, a century after a disastrous foreign invasion? Using science fiction, allegory, and magical realism to challenge the perception of what it means to be "The Other", this groundbreaking anthology edited by Hassan Blasim contains stories that are heartbreakingly surreal, and yet utterly recognizable to the human experience. Though born out of exhaustion, fear, and despair, these stories are also fueled by themes of love, family, and endurance, and woven through with a delicate thread of hope for the future."--Amazon.com

Iraq + 100 : stories from a century after the invasion by Anoud( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iraq + 100 poses a question to contemporary Iraqi writers: what might your home city look like in the year 2103 exactly 100 years after the disastrous American and British-led invasion of Iraq? How might that war reach across a century of repair and rebirth, and affect the state of the country its politics, its religion, its language, its culture and how might Iraq have finally escaped its chaos, and found its own peace, a hundred years down the line? As well as being an exercise in escaping the politics of the present, this anthology is also an opportunity for a hotbed of contemporary Arabic writers to offer its own spin on science fiction and fantasy

Surrealistische, wrede verhalen die zich afspelen in Irak na de val van Saddam Hussein en in Finland
Der Verrückte vom Freiheitsplatz und andere Geschichten über den Irak by Ḥasan Balāsim( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wie erzählt man von einem Land, das sich seit 35 Jahren im Krieg befindet? Von Geiselnehmern in Bagdad, der institutionalisierten Paranoia unter Saddam, dem Soldaten mit den hellseherischen Fähigkeiten, den Hasen in der Grünen Zone, dem Lied der Ziegen, den 1001 Messern und dem Mehlsack voller Köpfe? Wie erzählt man von der Psyche des Krieges, von dem alltäglichen Horror, der immer mehr Menschen zur Flucht zwingt? Und wie erzählt man von denen, die fliehen? Von den geheimen Pfaden der Emigration, von den Menschenhändlern in den Wäldern Serbiens, von Alis Tasche, von dem Massaker in einem LKW nach Berlin, von den Albträumen des Carlos Fuentes und vom fatalen Lächeln des Emigranten in der Nazi-Bar? So wie Hassan Blasim. Seine Geschichten schildern den Irak der letzten Jahrzehnte als surrealistisches Inferno - den Krieg mit dem Iran, die Herrschaft und den Sturz Saddam Husseins, die Besatzungszeit, die Eskalation der Gewalt und die sich ausdehnende Wüste der Erinnerung - und sie erzählen von der Emigration, von den Grenzen und Zäunen, den Ämtern und Verstecken, der Einsamkeit und der Entfremdung, der die Flüchtlinge ausgesetzt sind. Vor allem aber erzählen sie von Menschen, von ihren Traumata und Albträumen, von ihren Hoffnungen und Enttäuschungen, von ihrem Schmerz und ihren Strategien, in einer wahnsinnigen Wirklichkeit zu überleben.

Lik på utstilling by Ḥasan Balāsim( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En forlagsredaktør fristes til å utgi et innsendt manus under eget navn, med katastrofale følger. En mann har fått høre om et byrå som ansetter folk for å lage kunst av døden. To vakre, unge blonde menn går daglig gjennom byens fattigste strøk, og endrer alt. Disse surrealistiske fortellingene er knyttet til tiden etter Saddam Hussein og post-invasjonstid. Hassan Blasim regnes som en fornyer av arabisk litteratur. Hans noveller ligger i skjæringspunktet mellom fantasi, reportasje og selvbiografi. Han studerte ved filmakademiet i hjemlandet, men flyktet til irakisk Kurdistan i 1998. I 2004 flyktet han til Finland, der han nå bor. Omtalen er utarbeidet av BS
