I read this because I thought it was related to Shira Anthony's other story from DSP - The Dream of a Thousand Nights. While it is set in the same world and does contain the same characters (I think), it is actually not related to the other book at all. Think of this story as what could happen in an parallel universe from A Thousand Nights.

The Prince (who I think is Neriah) is depressed, a beloved prince by his people, his family and his father and mourning his lost wife, the princess. The Prin...more
As with the other Arabian-inspired Anthony book, I liked the atmosphere. It was nicely mystical and fits rather well with the theme. I feel the plot was a bit too condensed, though, and the resolution seemed a bit rushed.
This short story reminded me of "It's a Wonderful Life" where the MC is shown what the world would be like without him in it. I thought it was a pretty well told story and I liked the author's writing style.
Not a sexy story, but a well-written, sweet one. A prince contemplates suicide, griefstricken over the death of his princess. A genie shows him what his kingdom would be like if he died.

A very short but sweet take off on the "what the world would be like without you" theme. The exotic land and easy writing style made the story very enjoyable.
Very captivating short story that has me very interested in reading more from this author!

This is the short story that inspired, The Dream of a Thousand Nights. Another take on the "It's a Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Carol" theme: what would the world be like if you had died? Rating: G (suitable for work). Written with my good friend and fellow author, Venona Keyes. All the stories in the Halloween Howl had to be less than 3000 words - not an easy feat for me!

Shira Anthony is a complete sucker for a happily-ever-after, and rarely reads or writes a story without one. Never a fan of instalove, Shira likes to write stories about real men with real issues making real relationships work.

In her last incarnation, Shira was a professional opera singer, performing roles in such operas as “Tosca,” “Pagliacci,” and “La Traviata,” among others. Her Blue Notes Ser...more
