Post Wallace, Edgar: The Yellow Snake. v2, 17 June 2008

1926 thriller by Edgar Wallace.

Fing-Su is a graduate of Oxford and head of the dreaded Society of the Joyful Hands, which he uses to further his plans to dominate the world. Very much in the mold of Sax Rohmer's "Dr. Fu-Manchu".

Enjoy!

EDIT: 17 Jun 08

Recreated the book to improve the layout and formatting. Added a cover picture. Uploaded v2.

I was wondering when you'd be able to do the 2 or 3 newer ones I saw.

Thanks!!!

Don

ADDED: Here's a film based upon the book [DER FLUCH DER GELBEN SCHLANGE, 1963], and may shed some light:

"A Chinese cult bent on taking over the world uses an idol called The Golden Reptile that they believe can give them the power to achieve their goal. This idol is stolen in Hong Kong and finds its way to London, where the Chinese Cult wants to start its fight to take over the world."

As we all know, films adaptations can very widely.

MORE INFORMATION:

"Fing-Su, the title character of the Edgar Wallace novel The Yellow Snake (Hodder & Stoughton, 1926) is at least partly in the Fu Manchu mold: a graduate of Oxford and head of the dreaded Society of the Joyful Hands, which he uses to further his plans to dominate the world. The insulting appellation "Yellow Snake" was bestowed on him by his chief antagonist, Clifford Lynne. Fing-Su's methods are more mundane than Fu Manchu's, leaning heavily on blackmail, bribery, and kidnapping.

"The West German film adaptation, DER FLUCH DER GELBEN SCHLANGE (The Curse of the Yellow Snake), 1962, is more interesting, and closer to the Rohmerian spirit than the original book. In the film, Clifford Lynne and Fing-Su are half-brothers, and the Yellow Snake is an artifact, a jewel-encrusted golden serpent which serves as an object of veneration for members of the Society of the Joyful Hands. Members of the Society creep across fog-shrouded London rooftops on their cryptic errands, and attend the Society's rites, which include human sacrifice, in subterranean caverns.
Film credits: director, Franz Joseph Gottlieb; screenplay by Gottlieb and Janne Furch. Players: Joachim Fuchsberger, Werner Peters, Brigitte Grothum, Pinkas Braun, and Eddi Arent."

I think I'm current on all the Edgar Wallace books, Don. I've checked both PG and PG Aus and there doesn't seem to be anything there that I've not done, apart from a couple of short stories that I'm not bothering with. If you do come across anything I've overlooked, I'll convert it with pleasure.

Thanks for the info about the book - I never thought to check films!

More information added - apparently, the character is somewhat like Fu Manchu.

I'm going to start reading this today!
