An interview with Muhammad Aurangzeb Ahmad who is the editor of the popular blog ‘Islam and Science Fiction.’ He talks about the current state of sci-fi and Islam.
“Science Fiction conventions are finally making their appearance in the Muslim world. Places like Turkey and Malaysia are seeing a surge of interest but in general one can safely make the statement that Science Fiction is not a major genre of interest in the Muslim world. We are however seeing cases where at least some authors from the Muslim world are getting wider recognition outside of their home countries. The dystopian Science Fiction of Ahmed Tawfiq comes to mind.”
