From the Author

"Faizah's Destiny: The Tales of Abu Nuwas 2" was previously published as "Quest for the Simurgh" and "Faizah's Destiny." This final edition adds the frame story of Abu Nuwas the storyteller. The frame technique was used in 1001 Arabian Nights to provide a context to a series of short stories which originated over centuries in many cultures. At some point, somebody decided to make it a cohesive story with the addition of Scheherazade telling her own tale of keeping her murderous prince from killing her by leaving him hanging each night in the midst of a tale. A companion book, "Setara's Genie: The Tales of Abu Nuwas" uses the same technique. The story teller is the same, but the frame story differs depending on Abu's audience.
