The Bird King

The Bird King

Author: G. Willow Wilson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/07/2019

From award-winning author G. Willow Wilson, The Bird King is an epic journey set during the reign of the last sultan in the Iberian peninsula at the height of the Spanish Inquisition. G. Willow Wilson's debut novel Alif the Unseen (A&U, 2012) established her as a vital American Muslim literary voice. The Bird King tells the story of Fatima, a concubine in the royal court of Granada, the last emirate of Muslim Spain, and her dearest friend Hassan, the palace mapmaker. Hassan has a secret - he can draw maps of places he's never seen and bend the shape of reality. When representatives of the newly formed Spanish monarchy arrive to negotiate the sultan's surrender, Fatima befriends one of the women, not realising that she will see Hassan's gift as sorcery and a threat to Christian Spanish rule. With their freedoms at stake, what will Fatima risk to save Hassan and escape the palace walls? As Fatima and Hassan traverse Spain to find safety, The Bird King asks us to consider what love is and the price of freedom at a time when the West and the Muslim world were not yet separate.

Alif der Unsichtbare

Alif der Unsichtbare

Author: G. Willow Wilson Format: eBook Release Date: 25/01/2018

Ausgezeichnet mit dem World Fantasy Award als "e;Bester Roman des Jahres"e;. Alif, ein junger Hacker in einem arabischen Emirat, sieht es als seine Berufung an, seinen Klienten Anonymitat und Schutz vor staatlicher Uberwachung zu bieten, ganz gleich ob es sich dabei um Dissidenten oder Islamisten handelt. Doch als er selbst ins Fadenkreuz der Regierung gerat und sein Rechner gehackt wird, muss Alif sein bisheriges Leben hinter sich lassen und untertauchen. Dass ihm zudem ein uraltes Buch mit dem Titel "e;Tausendundein Tag"e; in die Hande gespielt wird, verkompliziert die Sache enorm. Denn sein Inhalt enthullt die reale Existenz der Dschinn und scheint obendrein der Schlussel zu einer neuen Informationstechnologie zu sein ... "e;Alif der Unsichtbare"e; widersetzt sich allen Genrekategorien: Dieser wundervolle Debutroman ist gleichermaen Fantasy-Roman und dystopischer Techno-Thriller. Vor dem Hintergrund einer nicht naher bestimmten arabischen Grostadt erzahlt er, was geschieht, wenn der Schleier zwischen sichtbarer und unsichtbarer Welt durchlassig wird.
