Wallace, Edgar: Private Selby. v1. 6 February 2012

Early Edgar Wallace, and an unusual novel for him, published in 1912. It could be considered altenate history - the centre of the plot is the invasion of Britain in 1909. It could be a crime story, as it opens in the mean streets of working class Deptford in the opening years of the 20th century, and includes criminals petty and not so petty. It is also a war story, and includes a balloon air raid over London; and finally the love story of Private Selby and his dream girl, the Brown Lady, also known as 'O.C'.

This edition has been recovered from a newspaper serial of 1914, and is 62,000 words. The automatic OCR of the online digitized newspaper was patchy, the linotype operator who typeset it back in 1914 was obviously working hastily, judging by all the typos, and the compositor merrily scrambled lines of type here and there.
