I had the good fortune to meet the President of Egyptian Society for Science Fiction Dr. Hosam El-Zembely and its member Emad Aysha in Nasr City (a suburb of Cairo) at their headquarters last week. The Egyptian Society for Science Fiction (جمعية المصرية لأدب الخيال العلمي) is a Science Fiction organization set up in 2012 by Dr. El-Zembely to promote Science Fiction in Egypt and the wider Arab World. They were also kind enough to give me a collection of all the anthologies that they have published so far. Here is a summary of the list.
|2012||Al-Qadimun (The Arrivals)|
|2013||Al-Aidun (Those Who Returned)|
|2013||Al-Thairun (The Rebels)|
|2013||Al-Muntasirun (The Victors)|
|2017||Al-Samidun (Those Who Persevered)|
|2019||Al-Mustaqbaliun (The Futurists)|
The society has regular meetings in Nasr City on a monthly basis where they discuss and critique the work of their members. If you are in town then be sure to stop by their meetings.
