Winner of the 2013 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel. A glorious rollercoaster ride through myth, cyberspace, love and revolution, Alif the Unseen mixes ancient magic with modern adventure to create an extraordinary story. With shades of Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, Philip Pullman, and The Thousand and One Nights, Alif the Unseen is a tour de force debut—a sophisticated melting pot of ideas, philosophy, religion, technology and spirituality smuggled inside an irresistible page-turner.
