While the current anthology that I was editing, "SF Waxes Philosophical", undergoes preparation to be published in November, I have been commissioned to do another anthology.

Mohammad Aurangzeb Ahmad is a freelance writer and doctoral student in Computer Science. He created and maintains what is probably the most extensive resource on the subject of "Islam and SF" - Muslims Writing Science Fiction.

He has asked me to co-edit an anthology of SF stories that feature Islam or at least one Muslim character in a positive light. He feels that at these times when Islam and Muslims are being negatively stereotyped, an anthology of this kind would be a good idea. And I agree.

So here is the call:

Theme: As above.

Genre: SF or fantasy. No horror, please.

Length: Any

Reprints: Okay.

Simultaneous Submissions: No

Deadline: January 31, 2007

Rights: One time anthology rights

Send submissions as .doc or .rtf attachments to ai_59@yahoo.com.

Payment: Oh yes! This time, the authors will be paid, though the payment will be nominal - 1 cent per word, with a minimum of $10 and maximum of $40 + a contributor's copy. The payment will be upon publication.

Please correct the deadline in the above guidelines to read "January 31, 2008" and not "January 31, 2007".
