Scheherzade is devoted to publishing and the promotion of book culture. Through its publication programme, Scheherzade has published over 100 books in five years and plans to bring out 20 new titles in 2008. These include new writing, especially fiction and poetry, current affairs and women’s issues. Translations from contemporary international writing into Urdu are an important component of Scheherzade’s publication programme and a special effort has been made to publish new translations of works by Rumi, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Orhan Pamuk, Sandor Marai, Naguib Mehfouz, Milan Kundera, and Ghassan Kanfani. Scheherzade also brings out Duniyazad, a quarterly journal of new writing.
