The ‘New Generation’ of Writers
From utopian dreams to dystopian nightmares, could a new wave of Arabic science fiction spur us to reimagine alternative futures in the Middle East and beyond?
Sindbad Sci-Fi’s producer Yasmin Khan joins forces with Shubbak to beam up a stellar panel of visionary writers, including Egyptian Ahmed Khaled Towfik, author of Utopia, Iraqi Ahmed Saadawi, the author of the IPAF-winning Frankenstein in Baghdad and Iraqi playwright Hassan Abdulrazzak, author of a short story about an alien invasion of Baghdad.
