Salam Award for Imaginative Literature

I was honored to serve as a juror this year for the Salam Award for Imaginative Literature, a short story award given to promote science fiction and related genres of writing in Pakistan. This is very much the model for what I hope to do with a broader SLF international short fiction award, so it was particularly exciting to see the process from the inside. And I got to read some wonderful stories!

Congratulations to the 2019 winner:

Kehkashan Khalid for her story The Puppetmaster

The two other finalists were:

Umair Khan for the story Compound

Fatima Taqvi for the story The Third Feather

Honorable Mentions:

Sadia Khatri – The City of Mitr
