Haggard, H. Rider: Haggard Anthology Vol 7. v2, 31 Mar 2008
Volume 7 of my H. Rider Haggard Anthology contains four African stories, as follows:
1. Benita - An African Romance
A thoroughly enjoyable fantasy adventure with ghosts, possession, lost races, lost treasure, mesmerism -- among the best of his lesser-known fantasy adventures.
2. Black Heart and White Heart - A Zulu Idyll
A modern day (for Haggard, that is!) love story novella.
3. Elissa - The Doom of Zimbabwe
A historical romance, set in ancient Zimbabwe, which Haggard imagines (somewhat dubiously, it has to be said!) to have been an ancient Phoenician city. A good read.
4. The Wizard
The story of an English missionary's attempts to convert an African tribe who are under the sway of a powerful wizard. An excellent story.
EDIT: 31 Mar 08
Recreated the book with improved formatting, preservation of dashes, etc. Uploaded v2.
