An excellent book. I read it when if first came out. It's most similar to The Thousand and One Nights, but with a more modern feel. It's also not a story-in-a-story as Scherezade was. It's more a collection of stories, all of which stand alone, but all of which are cleverly linked.

Fantasy Novel Dreams of the Compass Rose -- Free on Smashwords
You can read more about it on the Amazon page for the original hardcover edition (published by Wildside Press in 2002). The PW review describes it as " a clever concoction of vignettes and short stories knitted into a morality tale about the temptation of illusion and the price of truth." The Booklist review compares it to Charles de Lint, Lord Dunsany, and The Thousand and One Nights...
I have no connection to the author except reading her posts on www.sff.net.
