From Library Journal
A storytelling contest between a group of storm-stranded desert travelers and their djinni captors/rescuers provides the framework for 16 stories by a distinguished array of fantasy and sf authors that pay tribute to the Arabian Nights. From Larry Niven's war of words between a djinn and a desperate man ("The Wishing Game") to Tanith Lee's eerie mood-piece ("The Three Brides of Hamid-Dar"), this collection of stories, which includes contributions by Nancy Springer, Gene Wolf, Stephen R. Donaldson, Judith Tarr, and others, captures the allure and romance of the exotic Middle East. Highly recommended.
