The Second Achmed Abdullah Megapack: 17 Classic Stories

If you've picked up this volume, you may already be familiar with Achmed Abdullah's work from the first volume, "The Achmed Abdullah Megapack." If not, no harm done; both Megapacks contain short stories which can be read in any order. The only real difference is that Volume 1 contains quite a few supernatural stories, while Volume 2 focuses more on "contemporary" (early 1900s) life in exotic locales, like the Middle East, China, and New York City (primarily in Chinatown). Crime is frequently touched upon; many of these stories qualify as mysteries.

Included:
THE EVENING RICE
THE HATCHETMAN
FEUD
REPRISAL
THE HOME-COMING
THE DANCE ON THE HILL
THE RIVER OF HATE
THE SOUL OF A TURK
MORITURI
THE JESTER
THE STRENGTH OF THE LITTLE THIN THREAD
GRAFTER AND MASTER GRAFTER
THE LOGICAL TALE OF THE FOUR CAMELS
THE TWO-HANDED SWORD
BLACK POPPIES
THE PERFECT WAY
TAO

A note for the sensitive: Some of these stories are not "politically correct" by today's standards. Please keep in mind that Abdullah was writing in a different age, with different standards of propriety. The world has changed a lot in the last 100 years.

And if you enjoy this Megapack, please take a look at the many others available... search this ebook store for "Wildside Megapack" to see the list -- mysteries, adventure, horror, science fiction, westerns, humor, and many more subjects and authors are available. (And always at a bargain price!)

Note: This digital edition includes the PDF, ePub and Mobi (Kindle) versions of the book.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
