Everyone should take advantage of this great opportunity to work with Paper Djinn Press. Umair is a great editor and designer, and takes real pride in turning out exquisite products! I've enjoyed working with him, and I definitely plan to submit stories to the PDP contests, anthologies, and magazine.

The site looks great, and the opportunities look enticing, but the best reason to be excited about Paper Djinn Press is having Umair Mirxa at the helm, an editor and writer of proven skills and enthusiasm.

Having seen Umair Mirxa’s work, I was excited to find out that he is branching out on his own with Paper Djinn Press. I am excited to see what his creative genius will produce. Umair’s professionalism and dedication to his craft will make this publishing house a cornerstone in the Science Fiction/Fantasy genre.
