Arabian Nights • Tales from the Fractured Side

Three interwoven stories from the Book of One Thousand and One Nights by E Gray Simons III

Three tales—Prince Ahmed and the Fairy Queen, The Tale of the Fool, and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves—from the legendary Arabian Nights. The wise young Scheherazade must renew the faith of her new husband, King Sharyar, and manage to entertain him through the night until sunrise. Prince Ahmed and the Fairy Queen is the story of a prince who falls in love with an enchanting fairy only to be thwarted by his father’s royal vizier, a cunning sorceress. The Tale of the Fool uses a royal jester to show that even he who laughs at a fool can sometimes be one. Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves risks the lives of Ali Baba and his household by tempting him with stolen riches.
