Orion's Belt and Other Writings is an unusual first collection of fiction. It not only puts together Abad's five stories, but carries an introductory piece called "The Stick" which presents a disturbing theory of language, fiction, and the creative process, and ends with two essays on the author's own workshop with himself on two of his stories. While the first story "Tarang," is a surprise as it were from reflections on fiction in "The Stick," the four other stories spring directly as fiction from the author's own life.
