One of the new books released at this year’s Open CentralAsia Book Forum, held in London from 7 to 11 November, was Uzbekistan-based author Galina Dolgaya’s fantasy novel ‘The Gods of the Middle World’ translated by Robin Thomson.

At once a page-turning adventure story, a puzzle and a contemplation of the true human being who bridges heaven and earth, ‘The Gods of the Middle World’ won first prize at the Open Central Asia Book Forum in 2012. It is Ms Dolgaya’s first work to be published in English.

Galina Dolgaya grew up in Tashkent and has a thorough first-hand knowledge of the nature and geography of the region as well as a strong interest in its ancient history. She has published a number of books and collections of poetry in Russian, in addition to running a tourism company.

This book has been proudly created by the winners of the first Open Central Asia Book Forum and Literature Festival that was held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in 2012. It is dedicated to them for their passion, creativity and perseverance.
