Science Fiction in Egypt

The Arabic Literature (In English) blog has an interesting post up today that lists several recent Egyptian novels with an SFnal theme (only one of which is currently available in translation) and also reports from the opening of an art exhibition that mixes Egyptian and SF styles.

And that reminds me that the SF&F Translation Awards have added some new prizes to their fund-raising draw, including signed books from George R.R. Martin. Details here.
