Finally – the collection has been re-released – complete in its original form. These books were the staple of kids growing up in the 70s and 80s.
Amir Hamza & Umro Ayyar collections were first published centuries ago – around 1100 AD – a collection of stories written to entertain the Muslim Emperors who ruled at the time. In their original form, these stories spread over thousands of pages, tens of volumes – Maqbool Jehangir (Amir Hamza Collection) & Akhtar Rizvi (Umro Ayyar Collection) have shortened the length and translated them into everyday, contemporary Urdu.
The stories are gripping, full of suspense, horror, black magic, fantasy & action; these stories were here before Tolkien wrote his “Lord of the Rings” and if we dare say so – are much better than Tolkien’s work.
