Post Haggard, H. Rider: Haggard Anthology Vol 4. v5. 16th July 2011

This 4th volume of my H. Rider Haggard Anthology contains 4 novels featuring Allan Quatermain, which form a "mini series". Haggard's usual mixture of adventure and fantasy. The books are as follows:

1. Allan and the Holy Flower

Allan Quatermain seeks out a fabulous gigantic orchid presided over by a White Goddess guarded by a monstrous ape.


2. The Ivory Child

Sequel to "Allan and the Holy Flower". Allan returns to Africa to aid a tribe at war with an enemy aided by a giant elephant which no man (except Allan, of course!) can kill.


3. The Ancient Allan

Sequel to "The Ivory Child". With the aid of a hallucenogenic drug, Allan re-lives a past life in ancient Egypt.


4. Allan and the Ice-Gods

Sequel to "The Ancient Allan". Allan re-lives another past life, this time as a prehistoric cave man in the era when the Ice Age was beginning. This was Haggard's last-published tale about Allan Quatermain. Rudyard Kipling had a small part in developing the plot.


Well - that's really it for the "series" books! There are three remaining Allan Quatermain novels which don't fit into any series; I'll do those in Vol 5, and then release the other many and varied non-Allan novels in subsequent volumes.

As always, enjoy!

EDIT: 14 Jan 08

Recreated the book to improve the formatting, add proper footnotes, preserve dashes, etc. Uploaded v2.

EDIT: 28 Mar 08

Replaced all except the 2nd book in the anthology with new versions, to correct a problem with incorrect paragraph breaks. Uploaded v3.

EDIT: 7 Mar 10

Corrected HTML errors. Replaced the cover image. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 16 Jul 11

Thoroughly proof-read all the books in the volume: the first three against page scans from the Internet Archive; the last without any external reference, since I was unable to find a printed version. Corrected numerous errors as a result of this. I've also added some illustrations from the scanned versions: 12 to "Allan and the Holy Flower", 5 to "The Ivory Child", and one (a frontispiece) to "The Ancient Allan". Uploaded v5.
