Turkish tales bring the stories of Asia, Europe and Arabia into a unique melting pot of fables, fairy tales and folklore.
With a new introduction, the Turkish folk tales in this collection are curious and bizarre, beautiful and delightful, combining elements of ancient Anatolian folklore with Slavonic, Scandinavian and Arabian influences. Entertaining and exuberant, they shame the more prosaic fairy stories of other traditions with tales such as 'How Cobbler Ahmet Became the Chief Astrologer', 'The Horse-Devil and the Witch', 'How the Devil lost his Wager', 'The Prayer Rug and the Dishonest Steward', 'Paradise Sold by the Yard', 'The Cinder-Youth', 'The Metamorphosis' and 'The Forty Princes and the Seven-Headed Dragon'.
FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and myth, fantasy and science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and mechanical men, blood-lusty vampires, dastardly villains, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies. Discover a storehouse of tales gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic.
