As a reader, I pride myself of having every shred of liberty I might have the thought of to criticize any piece of work I happen to read. I like to be straight-forward and clear, even if my critic was harsh or uncommon.
But as a contributing writer in this book, I find it a bit and a tad hard to criticize other fellow writers in our mutual production.
So, I'll prefer to talk in general, and not criticize every single one of the short-stories in the book.

The book is a good-read. Some of the stories

Makan is collection of 18 short stories, selected from a total of 90 pieces written in both English and Arabic. It is the product of the Makan Writing Award, which is a sub-project of The Forgotten Writers Foundation.

‘Makan’ means ‘place’ in Arabic. Writers had to write about one – or two – of three places in Egypt. These places were: The Baron’s Palace in Heliopolis, Cairo; the Hussein neighbourhood in Old Cairo; and Qayet Bay Castle (Fortress) in Alexandria.

I found the English pieces to be far

Ok first off i am not a writer or a critic but here's my opinion as a reader so kindly accept it openheartdly..

هبدأ بالقصص العربى لأن دول اللي قريتهم الاول:
عجبنى قصص قصر البارون وقلعة قايتباى... ولم تعجبنى أى من قصص الحسين بالمره.. كانوا يخوفوا الصراحة وحسيت ان الحسين هو مكان مرعب مليان جن وعفاريت! محستش بروح المكان الحقيقيه.. ممكن تكون الكتابة مبدعة بس انا كقارئ معجبنيش القصص.
الجزء العربى عامة يغلب عليه الكآبة وجو رعب او احباط.. مش عارفة ليه!.. بس تقريبا الجيل كله بقا محبط ومكتأب .. عموما الكت

الكتاب عبارة عن مجموعة من القصص القصيرة للكتاب الشباب عن مواضيع محددة : حى الحسين، قصر البارون إمبان و قلعة قايتباى. تم إختيار تماثية عشر قصة قصيرة من لجنة التحكيم فى مسابقة مكان بالتعاون مع مكتبة "ديوان". بعض القصص قد إتخذت منحنى كلاسيكى و بعضها إتخذ من الرومانسية منهج فى سرد التاريخ. بالإضافة إلى أن الكتاب لا يقدم جديد و لكن لا يسعنا إلى التصفيق للمحاولات الجادة للنهوض بالكتابة الأدبية البعيدة عن الإسفاف و الإبتذال.

I applaud the efforts exerted to make this book and the way it gives young people a way to present their talents and encourage them to do something that they love even if they don't get paid for it. Despite some typos in both the English and Arabic texts, there were some good ideas, some predictable ones but mainly good idea by The Forgotten Writers Foundation to try and promote similar projects to provide people from different backgrounds and ages to let their imaginations run wild

I was born someday in the forgotten or unforgotten past, and will die at some point in the future. Until the two points meet the ultimate ending, it's no use pondering in between.

I try to have the butterfly effect. It's not an easy call to be done, but at least I try. I don't seek to be remembered or anything. It'd be just fine if someone somewhere around the globe felt a little bit better because
