Hi Dear Queenie friends!
I'm Farhad Arkani, an Iranian Writer & translator. My wife (Sara Sefati) & I had written & translated the first Persian book
of Queen's Biography, complete lyrics & ... in the year 2000 here, and as you know, here in Iran doing something like that is not as easy as you can guess.
But anyway, I have a good news for all of you, the great Queen fans family, not only our book has sold out & reached to the second edition but also the first Rock album published in Iran Was a collection of Queen songs and that's teh list:
Side A)
1. I want to break free
2. I want it all
3. Flash
4. Seven seas of Rhye
5. A kind of Magic
6. One Vision
Side B)
7. Bo Rhap
8. The Miracle
9. Breakthru
10. Friends will be friends
11. We are the champions

Plus Queen, the other western music albums distributed here are: Elton John, Chris de Burgh, Gipsy Kings, Andrea Buccely, Jolio Iglasias,...
Oh, by the way, there is another book named "Freddie & Bob" in Iran which is a bio of the two music legends: Freddie & Bob Dylan. and more by the way (!) you can see our book Brian May's hands! (Queenzone\Queen pictures) He's shocked to see it! I hope he does'nt have a plan to get money from my publisher! They can't do it anyway!

All the Queen Fans Around the World, I'll kiss your hands ;)
Farhad

It's great to know that Queen is popular in Asian countries - not only in Japan!
Good luck to you!
