Another Master of the Pulps. He wrote mostly of Oriental themes. Great stories.
The Ball of Fire
Hurst is in top form in this adventure of Bugs Sinnat, of the secret service, who made several appearances in Oriental Stories. In this tale, he travels from India to the wilds of Burma in search of a giant ruby, The Ball of Fire. A ripping yarn in the tradition of Kipling and Mundy.
The King of the Jerawahs
Danger, mystery, and exotic adventure in the serach for Alexander's tomb.
The People of the Fourth Dimension
A mysterious tale of mysterious India. At the behest of his young lover, an Englishman dares to stare into the saucer of ink, from which strange truths are revealed... Vague in style, but interesting.
The Spirit of France
A nice Burmese story by Hurst. A frequent contibutor to Adventure and Oriental Stories, he specialized in stories from the Asian sub-continent. (Reprinted from Adventure Trails, February 1929.)
