520    Our foremost theorist of myth, fairytale, and folktale 
       explores the magical realm of the imagination where 
       carpets fly and genies grant prophetic wishes. Stranger 
       Magic examines the profound impact of the Arabian Nights 
       on the West, the progressive exoticization of magic, and 
       the growing acceptance of myth and magic in contemporary 
       experience.
