"On New Years' Eve 1938, the writer Abdulla Qodiriy is taken from his home by the Soviet secret police and thrown into a Tashkent prison. There, to distract himself from the physical and psychological torment of beatings and mindless interrogations, he attempts to mentally reconstruct the novel he was writing at the time of his arrest - based on the tragic life of the Uzbek poet-queen Oyhon, married to three khans in succession, and living as Abdulla now does, with the threat of execution hanging over her. As he gets to know his cellmates, Abdulla discovers that the Great Game of Oyhon's time, when English and Russian spies infiltrated the courts of Central Asia, has echoes in the 1930s present, but as his identification with his protagonist increases and past and present overlap it seems that Abdulla's inability to tell fact from fiction will be his undoing. The Devils' Dance - banned in Uzbekistan for twenty-seven years - brings to life the extraordinary culture of 19th century Turkestan, a world of lavish poetry recitals, brutal polo matches, and a cosmopolitan and culturally diverse Islam rarely described in western literature."--Publisher's description.

THE DEVIL'S DANCE! A ring of evil buried in an ancient forest, the Devil's Dance belongs to the country of the Melungeons, that strange race of outcasts whose prehistoric origin is unknown. People believe that they worship the Devil himself, practicing obscene rites and drinking the blood of their victims during their debauched rituals. When Christine arrives at the ancient mansion where her sister's staying, she hears all the lurid stories about the curious country folk. Then she discovers she has a Melungeon name herself. Will this be her ticket to a final dance with death? "Another great read by a master storyteller. Banis brings to life another world and another way of living, and makes us believe we're there ourselves. First-rate entertainment!"-Robert Reginald. V. J. BANIS is the author of 150 books, including classic gothic romances and major historical novels, many of them being reprinted or published by the Borgo Press imprint of Wildside Press. He currently lives and works in the Blue Ridge region of West Virginia.
