Rohmer, Sax: Bimbashi Baruk of Egypt, v.1, 10 March 2008.
This is a Sax Rohmer collection of stories written under the name of Michael Furey.
I have yet to read this collection, but apparently Bimbashi Baruk is asociated with (I think) the Camel Corps in Africa, but works for British Military Intelligence. The Publisher’s blurb (included as an introduction), states that Baruk has an “uncanny power of scenting crime.” I don’t know if this interferes with dining out or not, but I do know that Sax Rohmer is able to write incredibly fun and ridiculous books, populated with murder and mysticism. All his books (that I’ve encountered) are also grounded in an oriental background.
I hope you enjoy it.
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
