"The Zar Tales" is a collection of short stories, poetry (and some about belly dancers!), and a novella about courageous women and their "Zars" (demons) who stand with them against oppression. Though the setting is in 1983 when the religious authorities tried to stop the Zar Ritual (an ancient ritual of support and comfort to women)the struggle of women today continues to find support in many areas of the Middle East and Northern Africa for this ritual. There is an essay by the author on Hyperarousal Trance and Creativity closing the book. Jane Kohut-Bartels is a novelist, a poet, a belly dancer and a teacher of belly dance in Atlanta, Georgia.

    Kohut-Bartels has matured as a writer. Her first anthology, A Seasoning Of Lust, is as masterful as a multi-cultural anthology can be. By telescoping her creative visions onto a specific culture/theme (in this case, the Zar), she's taken her writing to a new level. (We, as artists and writers, can always get better, with time, work, the right subjects, and patience.) Expect more great things from this author. Own this anthology. - Steve Isaak, author of "Can't sleep: poems, 1987 - 2007" and "Charge of the scarlet b-sides: microsex stories & poems"
