Edgar Hoffman Price (1898-1988) was a prolific pulp writer who got his start writing for Weird Tales and became a peripheral member of the Lovecraft Circle of weird fiction writers. This collection contains every story he published featuring a Kurdish holy man named Ismeddin. Price labels him as a "darvish," an alternate spelling of the Sufi Muslim "dervish," a man who chooses to become a beggar and an ascetic to become closer to God. The term "whirling dervish" comes from the spiraling dances the holy men use to place themselves in a trance state.
