During humanity's exodus from Earth centuries ago, 10,000 starships scattered in all directions throughout the galaxy. Along with passengers, those starships brought humanity's ancient literature. During the upheavals preceding the Galactic Commonwealth's creation, that literature was largely lost. Stories, once kwn as, the Arabian Nights survived, corrupted and transfigured, as folklore on neglected barbarian worlds. These stories, recently rediscovered, are those told by starfaring visitors to the galaxy's forgotten worlds. These stories of 1,001 Lightyears Entertainments are about: The Jinn-They ruled Thaj long before men arrived. Now there will be war. Elgelt Wang-A girl with a rough homelife and a blue alien for a friend. Aubwoo Nawus-Only yesterday, he was the most respected poet in the land. Today, harnessed like a camel, they lead him around the women's quarters. Will he be executed, or find a way to freedom? Prince Kazal- When he seeks shelter in a desert cave, a beautiful woman shows him her unusual collection. Hekaib Bess -Although it's generally wise to arrive early for appointments, that's t the case when the appointment is with Death. Kasiya-If King Pawara does t believe his story, Kasiya will lose his head. Can an old dog teach the king new tricks?
