Science fiction's Islamic roots

Related, ish. I’ve been meaning to get around to Jon Courtenay Grimwood’s Arabesk trilogy for ages…

Anyone read it? I really liked his earlier stuff.

However, as per the comments on the source article, bit of a stretch to call 2nd century Syria Islamic…


It’s a bit like Heinlein. As a kid, his early stuff was wow, great stuff, amazing. Then … … geez, man, what happened to you?

The same thing that happens to many great-in-the-early-days authors and filmmakers: he got too famous, ended up with editors who’d grown up reading his stories and ran out of people willing to say no to his not well-thought-out ideas.
