Post Haggard, H. Rider: Haggard Anthology Vol 2. v7. 7th Sep 2010

This second volume of my H. Rider Haggard anthology contains Haggard's other well known work (the other being "King Solomon's Mines"); namely "She", and its three sequels. All are a mixture of adventure story and supernatural fantasy (as are many of Haggard's other books).

The books in this volume are:


1. She

One of the greatest works of fantasy adventure ever written, this book tells the story of the quest to find the mysterious and tormented immortal African queen, "She Who Must Be Obeyed".

Note that one of the chapters of this book contains a number of illustrations of fragments of ancient Greek text. I've done the best I can to reproduce these graphically, but they don't come out wonderfully on the Reader. They don't affect the story line at all. Sorry for any problems with this, for those lovers of ancient Greek!


2. Ayesha

The sequel to "She" - continuing the story told in the original book.


3. She and Allan

A prequel to "She", telling the story of Allan Quatermain's encounter with "She".


4. Wisdom's Daughter

The early life and loves of "She", telling the story of how Ayesha became transformed into the immortal "She".


In case you were wondering, these books are indeed the original source of the expression "She Who Must Be Obeyed" .

More to come! Enjoy.


EDIT: 14 Nov 07

Completely re-created the book, adding many of the illustrations which were missing from the original version. Improved the layout and formatting. Added a cover picture for iLiad and Gen3. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 10 Jan 08

Created a proper MobiPocket version of the book with full-sized images, library information, working tables of contents link, etc. Uploaded v3.

EDIT: 27 Mar 08

Replaced the final book in the volume, "Wisdom's Daughter", to correct a problem with incorrect paragraph breaks. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 6 Oct 08

I've finally been able to locate the correct Greek Unicode font to accurately transcribe (as graphics) the Greek textual fragments in "She". A minor point, but it's been bugging me ever since I first created this book! Uploaded v5.

EDIT: 28 Feb 10

Cleaned up the HTML to remove problems that were preventing a clean conversion to ePub format. Replaced the cover image. Uploaded v6.

EDIT: 7 Sep 10

Completely proof-read the first three books in the anthology against page scans, and fixed numerous errors, added missing accents, formatting, etc. I was unable to locate a page scan of "Wisdom's Daughter" - if anyone knows of one, or has a printed copy that they could lend me for a few weeks, I'd be very grateful. In the mean time, I've proof-read "Wisdom's Daughter" in isolation, and found and fixed a number of obvious errors. I've also replaced all the illustrations in "She" with new ones, and added several new ones, added 32 new illustrations to "Ayesha", and a frontispiece to "She and Allan". Uploaded v7.
