This color illustrated 8.25x10.75 hardcover edition contains the ornamented crème de la crème of my Omaresque style quatrains, as selected from the larger volume of ‘Austin's... More > Rubaiyat’. These are not translations, but my own inventions. Prologue: Inspired by Omar, I have endeavored to capture his spirit for more modern times, although I have surely been influenced by Edward FitzGerald’s translated gems.

The prevalent polytheistic faiths of the time held that many Gods created the world, with various feuds and adventures between the Godly realms and Earth ensuing for ages thereafter.
