Some things are hard to categorize, Islam and Science Fiction being one of them. At various times in our history we have been a website, a blog and currently a mix of both. Thus after suggestion from a number of people we are asking our readers to nominate us for the Brass Crescent Awards. For those who are not familiar with Brass Crescent Awards here is a description of the awards from the website:

Created in 2004 by Aziz Poonawalla and Shahed Amanullah, the Brass Crescent Awards are named for the Story of the City of Brass in the Thousand and One Nights. Today, the Islamsphere is forging a new synthesis of Islam and modernity, and is the intellectual heir to the traditions of philosophy and learning that was once the hallmark of Islamic civilization – a heritage scarcely recognizable today in the Islamic world after a century’s ravages of colonialism, tyrants, and religious fundamentalism. We believe that Islam transcends history, and we are forging history anew for tomorrow’s Islam. These awards are a means to honor ourselves and celebrate our nascent community, and promote its growth.
