Post Rohmer, Sax: Sax Rohmer Anthology, Vol 1. v6. 29 Dec 2009

Just for a bit of fun, here are the first three books of Sax Rohmer's "Fu-Manchu" series in a handy anthology. The books are:

1. The Insidious Dr Fu Manchu
2. The Devil Doctor (aka The Return of Dr Fu-Manchu)
3. The Hand of Fu-Manchu (aka The Si-Fan Mysteries)

Hope this doesn't offend anyone - these are quite astonishingly "non-PC" by today's standards.

In case anyone is unfamiliar with them, these are detective/thriller stories about the struggles of the heroic British government agent, Nayland Smith (an early "James Bond" type) to foil the dastardly plots of Dr Fu-Manchu, the chief agent of the "yellow peril" (ie China) to overthrow the "white races" (I told you it was "non-PC"!). Obviously the social attitudes portrayed are long gone, but the actual stories are wonderful - Dr Fu-Manchu is the ultimate "evil genius scientist" and his plots are truly fiendish.

Well worth a read!

Unfortunately these are the only "Fu-Manchu" books available electronically, but PG has half a dozen or so more of Sax Rohmer's books available, and they're all great! I'll put together a couple more anthologies of the others.

Enjoy!

EDIT: 2 Jan 08

Created a proper MobiPocket version of the book with library information, working table of contents link, etc. Uploaded v3.

EDIT: 24 Aug 08

Improved the formatting. Uploaded v4.

EDIT: 31 Aug 08

While reading the book, noted many minor errors which have now been corrected. Uploaded v5.

EDIT: 29 Dec 09

Sorted out some issues with the HTML code. Added a new cover image. Uploaded v6.

Thanks Harry!

I'm reading a few serious works with my Christmas jetBook Lite, and I think this will be my first fun reading on it.

Rohmer died in 1959, so his works are now public domain in Canada. I hope the rest of the Fu-Manchu books will be appearing in the net now

I've actually downloaded these Fu-Manchu books from gutenberg, but have not read so far. Indeed, vitorian and post-victorian fiction, like "King Solomon's Mines" are very PC by today's standards. I was interested to read though the original sources for many cartoons I grew up with, like "Hong Kong Phooey", "The perils of Penelope Pitstop" and many other Hanna-Barbera subjects. Also, Scooby Doo draws heavily on Sherlock Holmes and similars...

the originals are far better though. I'm enjoying Arsène Lupin very much.
