In this collection of short stories, we follow a Persian mythological bird woman, Mother Simorq, who appears in many stories as a wise woman or a nanny. We read about teenage girls experiencing their coming of age within authoritarian or male-dominated environments and one little girl facing questions of life and death. We enter the world of a woman who transgresses oppressive social norms to be free and the nightmare of another one who has to commit murder to save her children. We see how women lost their power in human society as we read about a handful of symbolic characters interacting in a magical land. Finally, we revisit Sudaba, a mythical queen, as a contemporary Iranian woman in Canada, who loves her step-son like a traditional mother and pays heavily for her son-worshiping complex.

The Secret of the Storyteller follows the magical journey of Selena Silver, a naive, young flight attendant, as she finds herself embroiled in a Jerusalem uprising. Seeking refuge from the riots, she hides in the home of Sophia, a mystical oracle, who reveals to her ancient secrets that have been hidden for millennia and equally hidden political agendas. This long lost knowledge has the power to shift the paradigm of humanity into a new era of peace, possibility, and hope. Brimming with esoteric wisdom and told with an enigmatic voice, The Secret of the Storyteller is a profoundly moving narrative adventure.

Southey's Oriental Romances, Thalaba the Destroyer and The Curse of Kehama, are, I suppose, almost wholly unknown to the younger generation of readers. It must be confessed that they are not commended by their metrical form; but they display great power of imagination, and convey an admirable moral. I have tried to tell these two stories in prose. I have added the Story of Rustem, greatly condensed, from Firdausi's Shah-Nameh, or Book of the Kings. I have availed myself of M. Jules Mohl's translation from the Persian, a popular edition of which, in seven octavo volumes, was published under the care of Madame Mohl in the years 1876-78. It was necessary to take some liberties with the story, for the chief of which I may plead the authority of Mr. Matthew Arnold, who, in his beautiful poem of "Sohrab and Rustem," represents the father as believing that the child born to him by his Tartar wife is a girl. In Firdausi's poem he knows that he has a son, but cannot believe that so young a child can be his stalwart antagonist.

"The literary explosion in Quebec produced some of the most original and entertaining fiction in Canada. Anansi presents a major anthology of the best stories by such well-known names as Michel Tremblay, Yves Thériault, Jacques Ferron, Gilles Vigneault, Roch Carrier, and many more. In his introduction Geoff Hancock, former editor of Canadian Fiction Magazine, looks at the forms and ideas that characterize modern Quebec fiction: the inner world of fantasy, utopia, and anti-utopia, the comic and the grotesque, the new political concern with feminism and individualism."
