Babak's writing debuted in North American Review ("Fighting Fish"), and he was a finalist for a Glimmer Train award. His story "Glow," published in Palo Alto Review, was deemed "flawless" and "brilliant" by Shenandoah literary review. Babak's sci-fi novel A-Void presents a disturbing dystopia. Future releases include the short story collection/free verse collection double book Time Spent in Imagined Places/The Midnight Canaries.
