(1977- ) Egyptian journalist and author whose fourth novel, Eflat Al Asabea (2018; trans Robin Moger as Slipping 2021), sophisticatedly represents a Fantastic Voyage through the riches and detritus of post 2011 Egypt via fluent weddings of the topoi of world-Fantastika: dream visions; palimpsests that create edifices of the past and the present and the future; nightmares of bureaucracy wrought to its most ludicrous; glimpses of "traditional" sf modes transacting with the multiplicity of the real world.
