The anthology, "A Mosque Among the Stars", edited by Muhammad Aurangzeb Ahmed and yours truly, will be available from ZC Books in September 2008. This anthology features 12 SF stories (originals and reprints) that portray Islam or Muslim characters in a friendly light.
Here is the cover (beautifully rendered by the talented Lee Kuruganti), and the TOC:
The high road is usually the road-less-taken on the internet. Yours is the best possible response, Ahmed.
I must say I'm very much looking forward to this new anthology. I suspect it will get quite a lot of attention and be your biggest hit yet.
Folks like the one who posted the rude comment above only serve to prove how badly an anthology like this is needed. They draw attention to the issue-- and that attention will draw readers and sales. :)
A bit late at the party, but this one is looking very good, Ahmed. Cool cover, and will be looking forward to it (I'm so behind with my reading that I've only just started to read "SF Waxes Philosophical").
And let me chime in with Ted (Kosmatka): take the high road. Expose racism and bigotry. Unfortunately, the post was anonymous (although voicing offensive comments from the veil of anonymity is the typical cowardliness of such people).
Hopefully, "A Mosque Among the Stars" will help change some misconceptions with some people.
