Post Haggard, H. Rider: Haggard anthology v1 9 jun 2009

First volume of HarryT's Haggard anthology:
Quote:
This is the first volume in a short series I plan to put together containing what are (IMHO) the best novels of the British Victorian adventure writer, Sir Henry Rider Haggard (who wrote under the name of "H. Rider Haggard"). With a couple of notable exceptions, his books are little read today, which is a great pity, because they are adventure stories on a par (again, IMHO) with the best "thriller" writers of today.

Many of his books are related, and should ideally be read in order. That order is, however, by no means obvious, so I hope to help people out by presenting his books in a suggested reading order in this series.

This volume contains four books, as follows:

1. King Solomon's Mines

This is the one book of Haggard's that everyone's heard of, and justifyably - it has been called one of the greatest adventure stories ever written. In it, hunter Allan Quatermain accompanies three Englishmen searching for a lost explorer in Africa.

2. Allan Quatermain

The sequel to King Solomon's Mines. Allan, and the Zulu warrior, Umslopogaas, find a lost civilization in the heart of Africa.

3. Nada the Lily

A tie-in novel of sorts to Allan Quatermain, this is the story of the rise of the Zulu nation under Chaka, their greatest king.

4. Allan's Wife

The story of Allan Quatermain's wife, Stella.


More soon. Enjoy!

For those who have never read Haggard, I'd be very interested in hearing your opinion of his books.

Edit: 3 Apr 07. v2

Uploaded a new version with the following corrections:

1. "King Solomon's Mines" used the notation "/xxx/" to indicate that the word "xxx" is in italics. Replaced with proper italics.

2. There were a number of instances of English currencies being prefixed with "L" instead of a "£" sign. Replaced with a "£" sign.

Edit: 1 Nov 07

Version 3 uploaded. Major reformatting and cleaning. Preservation of dashes; fixing of line breaks; proper formatting of verse and songs, etc.

Edit: 6 Nov 07

Version 4 uploaded. There were unlinked TOC entries in both "King Solomon's Mines" and "Allan Quatermain". Now fixed.

EDIT: 26 Mar 08

Replaced "King Solomon's Mines" and "Nada the Lily" with new versions to correct a problem with incorrect paragraph breaks. Uploaded v6.

EDIT: 6 Apr 08

Read "King Solomon's Mines" and bookmarked a number of typos and formatting errors while doing so. Corrected these errors, and uploaded v7.
