World Tales: The Extraordinary Coincidence of Stories Told in All Times, in All Places
No ordinary collection of tales, this anthology was the result of extensive research that led Shah to conclude that there is a certain basic fund of human fictions which recur again and again throughout the world and never seem to lose their compelling attraction. This special paperback version of World Tales concentrates on the essentials, the text of the stories, and omits the illustrations which were part of a previous edition.

Review: World TalesUser Review - Kevan Bowkett - Goodreads
A garden of stories: a delight to read. Enlivening, upbeat traditional tales from around the globe, beautifully told. The author also includes interesting prefatory notes to the tales, which help show connections between stories often far apart in time and space. Read full review
