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.

THE HATCHETMAN

THE HOME-COMING

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.
