About Soham Saha
Soham Saha found an escape from his exciting, yet exhausting laboratory work by writing stories, where the results are instant, the physics absolutely ridiculous, and the worlds fantastic. So far, his work has appeared in Origins: Colliding Causalities, and Lost Worlds: Retraced, science fiction anthologies based in the USA. Soham's dreams entail bringing international attention to Bengali fiction, essentially from the literature from the days of Tagore to works by more contemporary writers such as Samaresh Majumdar and Sunil Ganguly. A collection of Folk Tales from Bengal is the first step towards that. His other writing projects include a science fiction novel, several short stories, and translating a collection of fairy tales from Bengal.
