Saladin Ahmed was born in Detroit and raised in a working-class Arab American enclave in Dearborn, Michigan. His first novel, Throne of the Crescent Moon, praised by George RR Martin as “old-fashioned sword-and-sorcery adventure with an Arabian Knights flavor” and by NPR Books as “Terrific fantasy….Lord of the Rings meets the Arab Spring,” was nominated for the Hugo, Nebula, and British Fantasy Awards, and won the Locus Award for Best First Novel. Saladin lives near Detroit with his wife and twin children.
