Post Graydon, William Murray: Lost Cave v1 19 dec 2008

William Murray Graydon's output was really tremendous, as he wrote for almost every publishing firm, using the new invention, the Dictaphone, for hours on end. A keen student of geography he could write authentically about any country in the world, and his tales about the Congo and Siberia were tremendously popular with readers who longed to know more about the mysterious countries that were so much in the news at that period. "Sexton Blake in the Congo", one of his earliest efforts, which ran as a serial in the green BOYS FRIEND for six months, is still considered a classic story by many collectors as, in it, W.M.G. also expressed his own strong political views on Belgium's treatment of the natives.

1940 saw him living down in Cornwall, where after his wife Pearl died during the early part of the last war, he became seriously ill. He recovered to some extent, and his daughter Rachel came and looked after him, but during the last two years of his life he practically never left his bed, where he eventually died on the 5th April 1946, aged 83.

Lost cave is a tale about youngsters lost in a cave having the strangest encounters:
Quote:
The three boys were thoroughly frightened when they saw the ugly brute menacing them at such close quarters. Roger tried to keep a cool head on his shoulders, and stoutly resisted Clem's appeal to be allowed to use the gun.

"Look, how broken and split the root is above us." he said. "A concussion might bring the whole thing down on our heads. Besides, the gun is only loaded with small shot. It would make matters worse to merely cripple the animal."

The catamount was now crawling slowly toward the boys, screeching as he advanced.

They retreated to the other side of the fire, and then, at a word from Roger, all let fly their brands.
Have a lot of fun!
