A New Reader? This post is for You!

(Last updated: 18th of December 2023.)

Introducing @ahmadmanga

I'm Ahmad Al-hemmaly, known online as @ahmadmanga. I'm a Storyteller & Make Art!

I've been posting creative works online since 2009. At first, it was mostly in Arabic., I've gradually learned how to write better stories over time, become better at illustrations, and sometimes I made Video Games

Below you'll find a list of stories I recommend to my new readers. This list will be updated periodically when I publish something good from now on!

The Website!

If you're a new reader or aren't familiar with me on Hive. I recommend you check my website: https://ahmadmanga.net

It's essentially my portfolio. I update this site occasionally with my best works and I plan for this to become my face on the internet.

I give each of my works on the website the best presentation I can give and it's hard to do that in my blogs on Hive blockchain.

What to Expect?


  • My short stories usually explore a single idea or a character.
  • Most of my fictional are character-driven but a few are plot-driven.
  • Some are experimental. Text or art might be in a new style I never tried before.


  • My stories take 5-10 minutes of reading per post. (They're 600 to 3000 words long.)
  • My longer stories are written in bite-sized chunks with clear stopping points. Good for short reading sessions.


As for the themes explored, they can be anything, it's easier to list genres I won't touch rather than what I love to explore. You'll notice patterns:

  • Magic or Technology. Characters will either be living in a Fantasy world OR (if they're in the real world) deal with Computers a lot.
  • Some of my characters may be living with their heads too much.
  • My Science Fiction focuses on the characters rather than the science.
  • My mystery is usually simple and I like writing anime tropes. I also like exploring new structures of storytelling, so far I wrote stories in short & long paragraph formats.

Anytime I saw your post is always ginger me of doing something but as a beginner it has were my power reach, may God almighty bless your brain than the present

I've always been interested in magic and technology themes. I feel the combination creates wonderful stories that explore hidden longings and the relativity of the world. I will definitely create the time and give them a read. The titles are amusing :)

Yeah, I love Magic and Technology too. I don't think I wrote a story that truly combines them, but I have a lot of stories for each in my list. If you like High Fantasy, I really recommend "A Fascinating Legacy" If you read that one, can you say what you think a sequel would be about?

If you like Urban Fantasy, you might enjoy "Your Heart will Remember." For technology-based stories you might like ""Hello. World..."" or "Saya is Offline"

If you want to read short stories, youmight love "Dead Lands Never Bloom" and "Galaxy News"

Meet you at another one of my stories.~ !PIZZA !LUV

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll give them a look and create time to read them. I started reading Saya is Offline and it is interesting :)

Will wait for your feedback.~

I read Saya of Offline and enjoyed the way you presented the story and revealed what is going on bit by bit. There is another work called The Song of Saya written by Gen Urobuchi.

Wow, I know about that one... It's too gruesome that I don't want to read it. (The premise is intriguing but it's the genre I don't like of Horror.)
