Overview

The Veils of Isis is a collection of eleven short stories. The Veils of Isis is a fantasy that takes place in ancient Egypt and centers on one young priest's devotion to the ancient goddess.

Several stories deal candidly (for the day) with sexual themes from The Yellow Ticket (prostitution in Moscow) to A Miracle and No Wonder which is little more than a very long and protracted dirty joke.

A Daughter of Eve and Within the Shadow are in this reviewer's opinion, the most powerful of the collection, the former dealing with tensions aboard a small boat between a woman and the rest of the male crew and the latter which deals tells the tale of forbidden love between a westerner and the young wife of a Chinese mandarin.
