TOC: ‘Engraved on the Eye’ by Saladin Ahmed

Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist tells us that Saladin Ahmed has a new collection out: Engraved on the Eye.

Here’s the book description:

Stories to Captivate the Imagination: Welcome to the worlds of Saladin Ahmed.

A medieval physician asked to do the impossible. A gun slinging Muslim wizard in the old West. A disgruntled super villain pining for prison reform. A cybernetic soldier who might or might not be receiving messages from God. Prepare yourself to be transported to new and fantastical worlds.

The short stories in this collection have been nominated for the Nebula and Campbell awards. They’ve been reprinted in The Year’s Best Fantasy and other anthologies, recorded for numerous podcasts, and translated into several foreign languages. Now they are collected in one place for the first time. Experience for yourself the original voice of one of fantasy’s rising stars!

  1. God willing, soldier, you should buy this immediately.


  2. I wanted to note that this is also available at my favorite ebook site,

    The nice thing about Smashwords is that it can be purchased in all major formats (Epub, Mobi, PDF and several others), all DRM-free (the Amazon version is also DRM free) and with no geographic restrictions. This makes format-shifting for multiple devices a no hassle issue, no need to have Amazon’s proprietary app (just buy and download through your browser)…Amazon sneers at us Linux users (no ebooks for you, Mr. Linux Fan) while Smashwords embraces us.
