Engraved on the Eye


Saladin Ahmed

This is a collection of fantasy short stories, all of which contain some element of Islam or the Middle East. Beyond that one unifying aspect, though, the stories are wide-ranging, encompassing a cowboy story, a story set in modern LA, a story set in the far future, and stories set in fantasy worlds. All of the stories are well told, inventive, and entertaining, and while some are stronger than others, even the weakest story is fun to read.
