Great short stories with some characters of interest that can be read (I believe) in a new series by the same author.

Lovely descriptions of folklore that I knew nothing about, full of beauty and mysticism. A great introduction to the author and the characters!

Highly recommended.

An excellent first collection of short stories. I enjoyed all of these stories that range from 3 to 5 star ratings and I found them to be all enjoyable. The collection is an ebook exclusive, there isn't (so far at least) a physical edition available unfortunately. I am a big fan of Saladin Ahmed's novel, 'The Throne Of The Crescent Moon' and I am really looking forward to reading the sequel. Anybody else who feels the same way may also really enjoy this collection whilst we wait for that second novel set in The Crescent Moon Kingdoms.

A brilliant collection of short stories showing tantalising vingettes with a decidedly Arabic flavour. After reading these stories, I had to buy Throne of the Crescent Moon which picks up and continues with the adventures of Doctor Adoulla Makhslood and Raseed bas Raseed which we first meet in the short story 'Where Virtue Lives'. My second favourite short story is 'Judgement of Swords and Souls' concerning the Dervish Layla bas Layla.

Saladin Ahmed's writing style is clear, invocative and brings the Arabian flavour of the mythologies and characters in these stories to life. Heartily recommended.

A series of short stories all with a bit of a whiff of the role-playing campaign about them: some nice magic systems derived from combinations of Quranic traditions and the Arabian Nights. A pleasant humanity to many of the conclusions, I particularly recommend Hooves and the Hovel of Abdul Jameela.

Most of these are legitimately available on-line, at least during award-nomination season, but Saladin is an emerging author worthy of your support

An almost ridiculously enjoyable collection of short stories, ranging far and wide across fantasy and even a little science fiction. None of these were a chore to read, and even the weaker (a *very* relative term here) entries were more than worth the investment of time required to read them. "Where Virtue Lives" would seem to be a prequel to Ahmed's THRONE OF THE CRESCENT MOON, a novel I haven't yet read but, based on this sampler, I certainly shall. Hard to choose a favourite but, if pushed, I suspect "The Faithful Soldier, Prompted" will stay with me for a good while. In conclusion, this is top notch SFF writing and the collection is currently free, so why wouldn't you get it? Putting it on your Kindle is the very definition of a "no-brainer."
