Egyptian SF in Locus

I’m delighted to be able to report that my interview with Egyptian science fiction writer, Ahmed Khalid Towfik, is in the new issue of Locus which was published today. As you may recall, Dr. Towfik is the author of Utopia, a powerful novella about class divisions in a near-future Egypt that was chosen for translation to English by Bloomsbury Qatar. Hopefully getting the interview into Locus will generate a bit of interest in Arabic language SF.

I expect Locus will put the interview on their website eventually, but right now Mark hasn’t got the sales links to the new issue up. That should happen sometime soon. And I’m not blaming him as I have a pile of new material to go into the Wizard’s Tower store that I should be working on.
