Unfortunately, due to personal reasons, Saladin Ahmed won’t be able to make it to Kontur.
Saladin Ahmed is a fantasy and SF writer as well as poet. In 2012, he debuted with Throne of the Crecent Moon, the first in a trilogy inspired by Arabian storytelling traditions and A Thousand and One Nights. It was nominated for both Hugo and Nebula awards, and won the Locus Award for Best First Novel. Ahmeds short stories have been published in Strange Horizons och Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and he’s written multiple essays for The New York Times, Salon and Buzzfeed. He is perhaps equally known for his work in speculative fiction as he is for his witty, entertaining and frank social commentary on everything from pop culture to American politics. He is currently working on his sequel novel, as well as publishing short fiction on monthly basis through Patreon.
