The Arabian Nights

by Andrew Lang

There are several references to Baghdad in these stories. Iraq was a part of ancient Persia. I fail to understand how then the book can be termed Arabian. I would think the original stories are Persian written in Farsi and then adopted in Arabic eventually due to their popularity.

The Familiar

by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

This story is excellent. A creepy, Victorian gothic horror story. I'm glad there are more of these to read. Highly recommended.

Mornings at Bow Street

by John Wight

I haven't read very far into the book but I already like it. It's reminiscent of The Pickwick Papers. I almost thought Dickens was writing it under a pseudonym. I hope the humor of these little anecdotes keeps up!
