PW review of Mammoth Book of Steampunk, the good and the inaccurate (ETA: fixed!)  

ETA: It's been fixed! Yay! But not before tithenai and I decided it was an in-world French plot to destabilize our fictional nations! :D

-----

So there's a PW review of the Mammoth Book of Steampunk! And it's starred, and very positive, and mentions my story, so awesome!

Except for one thing.  The reviewer seems to think that (Mughal) India is in the Middle East:
...Shweta Narayan and Amal El-Mohtar’s stories take place in fantastic versions of the Middle East.

Um.



No?

They're not the first reviewer to say this about my Mughal-setting stories, either.  So, just to set the record straight, guys: Islam existed, and continues to exist, in places other than the Middle East.

This has been a PSA.
