Published on the occasion of the third anniversary of the paper, New Age Short Stories testifies to the role that the paper has played from the beginning in making Bangladeshi fiction, in English and in English translation, readily available to an English-reading audience. In the course of these three years, New Age has published so many stories that all of them could not be accommodated in one volume. Only stories that appeared from September 2003 to September 2005 have been included. When New Age started publication on June 7, 2003, it did not have a regular story feature.

In this second collection of short stories, Niaz Zaman brings the versatility of her pen and imagination to look at the world around her and tell the stories of men and women caught up in the business of living. While she often narrates her stories from the perspective of her women characters, she is also able to enter the minds of her male protagonist. What does it feel like when a man bids farewell to a child after divorce? How does a raw provincial react when he is in a cosmopolitan city for the first time?

This issue constitutes Volume 2 of Six Seasons Review (Numbers 1&2), the only English-language periodical published from Bangladesh devoted exclusively to arts and letters. The response to our first two numbers have been heartening, for many people have told us that they liked the format and the content. But we would like to receive more fiction, poetry, non-fiction prose essays, literary essays/book reviews from our readers (as well as praise). In particular, we look forward to receiving submissions for our fourth issue, which is a special number on Dhaka.

Six Seasons is a Bangladeshi-Indian Subcontinental, international periodical devoted exclusively to arts and letters. Earlier Bangladeshi ventures like New Values in the 1950s, and Form: A Magazine of the Arts in the 1980s, generated much interest, but folded mainly because the tasks of gathering material, editing and publishing at the same time proved difficult to sustain for the individuals who launched them. Our present effort will be to pick up the pieces where other left off.

Fault Lines is the first anthology containing stories from Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, the United States and the United Kingdom on the theme of 1971. There is a lot of creative writing that has emerged from 1971, but most of it in regional languages. This anthology, by putting together stories originally written in Bangla, Urdu, Sindhi or Punjabi, in addition to a handful originally written in English, attempts to bridge the language barrier. The breakup of Pakistan and the emergence of Bangladesh were attended by violence and bloodshed.

পার্বত্য চট্টগ্রামের মুরং, তঞ্চ্যঙ্গা, নাগা, কুকি ও ত্রিপুরাদের মতো চাকমারাও প্রাচীন ও আদি জাতিসত্তা। আগে সেখানে অরণ্য ছিল নিবিড় ও নিচ্ছিদ্র। তখন আদি বাসিন্দারা ছিল সেখানকার একচ্ছত্র অধিপতি। আদি জাতিসত্তার মধ্যে চাকমা ও মারমাদের আছে বর্ণমালা, আদি গ্রন্থ ও প্রাচিন সাহিত্য। এই আরণ্যচারী অধিবাসীরা তাদের নিজস্ব আচার-আচরণ, রীতি-নীতি,সামাজিক প্রথা, অনুশাসন এবং তাদের জীবনে অতিপ্রাকৃত শক্তির প্রভাব সম্বন্ধে একান্তভাবে আস্থাশীল। অপদেবতা ও ভালো দেবতার অমিত শক্তি সম্বন্ধে তাদের সংস্কারও তাই সহজাত। আর প্রেম-ভালোবাসা ও ধর্মের প্রতিও তারা নিয়মনিষ্ঠ। সেই জগৎ আমাদের এত অচেনা, তার ভূপ্রকৃতি এত অনুভূতিময়
