New Book by Dr. Ulrich Marzolph

I'm excited to announce a new book by the "Godfather" of 1001 Nights research, Professor Dr. Ulrich Marzolph (

Dr. Marzolph's career has been instrumental in Nights research. He is the editor of the indispensible The Arabian Nights Encyclopedia, The Arabian Nights Reader, and The Arabian Nights in Transnational Perspective. He is also the author of several books and scores of articles on the Nights.

You can order the book through the publisher, Verlag für Orientkunde, by emailing them –
