¶ Listed in Jones & Newman's HORROR: 100 Best Books . "One of the best fantasy novels written this century" - Brian Stableford. Set in Cairo in 1486, AN ARABIAN NIGHTMARE is an exceedingly peculiar book. "As though an mediaeval historian (which the author is) had joined forces with Jorge Luis Borges and Philip K.Dick to rewrite The Arabian Nights as a horror novel."
