Two years ago I wrote a book entitled The Demon in the Lamp. I considered it a complete failure. Yet I also felt that it was salvageable, that I could make it better, that I could improve it. At first, there may appear little difference between the original and the revised and retitled The Island of Amodhai. The revisions were fairly light, except for several passages that were omitted, and new passages that were added. My feelings about the book remain ambivalent, but I include it here nevertheless.
