This 13th volume of my H. Rider Haggard anthology contains the following books:
The Way of the Spirit
This is a painful, realistic love story, but with just enough "mystic" touches about undying, eternal love (i.e., love that survives the grave) to lend it a hint of supernatural interest. The plot was inspired during Rider's journey to Egypt.
The Ghost Kings
An African fantasy adventure with a lost race, occult powers, tree magic, and a divine maiden. Rudyard Kipling assisted with the plot.
The Yellow God
Fantasy adventure set in Africa and England. Magic mask and other weird fetish objects; lost race; reincarnation, plus a sort of vampirism by an immortal woman whose many husbands she has preserved as mummies.
The Lady of Blossholme
Historical novel set in 16th century England. Some fantasy content (witchcraft, etc).
