Post Haggard, H. Rider: Haggard Anthology Vol 5. v5. 15th Aug 2011

Volume 5 of my H. Rider Haggard Anthology contains the remaining three "Allan Quatermain" novels not previously included, together with three short stories. These should ideally be read after the "series" of books included in previous volumes, but do not fit into these series in any particular place. These books are:


1. Maiwa's Revenge

Adventure fantasy. Maiwa is a woman on the road to revenge, and it's a doozy when she gets it!

2. Heu-Heu

African fantasy adventure, set before "King Solomon's Mines". More of Allan's fantastic adventures, and a lost race. Heu-Heu is a gorilla-monster who receives human sacrifices, the original of Robert E. Howard's similar creations.

3. The Treasure of the Lake

Allan returns in a very good fantasy adventure making use of themes of dream-magic, occult powers of varied sorts, treasure, and reincarnation. An excellent read!


This volume also includes three Allan Quatermain short stories: "Hunter Quatermain's Story", "A Tale of Three Lions", and "Long Odds", all of which describe hunting adventures.

That's all the "Allan Quatermain" stories now. I hope you enjoy them - Allan Quatermain is one of my very favourite fictional characters, and sadly forgotten today. In subsequent volumes of this anthology I'll start on some of Haggard's other works, many of which are terrific reads.

EDIT: 22 Feb 08

Recreated the book with improved layout and formatting. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 29 Mar 08

Replaced "Heu-Heu" with a new version to fix a problem with paragraph breaks. Uploaded v3.

EDIT: 7 Mar 10

Corrected HTML errors. Replaced the cover image. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 15 Aug 11

Thoroughly proof-read all the novels in this volume, and also moved the three Allan Quatermain short stories here from a later volume: this is where they logically belong. Uploaded v5.
