Moric  Jokay  de  Asva  (1825  - 1904),  known  as  Mor  Jokai  or  Maurus  Jokai,  was  a 
Hungarian  dramatist  and  novelist.  He  was  a very  prolific  writer  from  an  early  age 
and  wrote  hundreds  of  novels,  novellas,  and  short  stories  in  his  lifetime.  The  nine 
stories  in  this  selection  tell  about  hard  times  in  Eastern  Europe,  especially  in 
Hungaria  (Jokai  was  involved  in  the  Hungarian  uprising  of  1848),  as  well  as  of 
ancient  superstitions  and  folk  lore.  In  the  novella  The  City  of  the  Beast,  Jokai 
gives  his  version  of  the  sinking  of  Atlantis.
