I am the founder and editor of the Islam and Science Fiction Project. I started the eponymous website in 2005 after researching on this subject and realized that there is a dearth of information on this subject. In the beginning it was mainly a repository of links, summaries and information about novels, movie, comics, short stories, TV shows etc with Science Fiction elements that also have Muslim characters, Islamic themes or set in predominantly Muslim cultures. It has evolved into a much larger project with community engagement, commentaries on current themes in Science Fiction, annual short story competition etc. A digital archive of related materials for this project is maintained at the Texas A&M University. The project now has about a dozen contributors and one of our former contributors is a Hugo and Nebula award finalist.
