Praise for Legends of the Fire Spirits
"The most complete compendium of research on the jinn to date." -UFO Digest
"Legends of the Fire Spirits is a long overdue compendium of the knowledge and history of the jinn. It will enrich the reader's knowledge of human history more than one might imagine. The book also can serve as a lifelong reference to the mysteries of the Middle East and their influence on both Western and Eastern cultures." -Arab News
"Robert Lebling's exhaustive and very readable account of jinn lore and legends traces the fascinating history of these strange beings . . . Mortals interested in knowing more about these magical creatures must content themselves with Lebling's absorbing study." -Times Literary Supplement
"A fantastic introduction to a big Middle Eastern subject-the belief in Jinn, spirit people who live in parallel to us yet are invisible to humans. Most cultures have had traditions about 'little people' or something similar, but in the West we've pretty much ruled it out-"Faires at the bottom of the garden." . . . Perhaps the fairies aren't at the bottom of the garden after all, but right next to us. An excellent read-highly recommended." -Jason Webster, author of the Max Camara detective novels
