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
Author Vera Nazarian is making her novel, Dreams of the Compass Rose, free at Smashwords until September 15.
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.
