Mundy, Talbot: Caves of Terror. V1. 20 Feb 2010
Talbot Mundy (born William Lancaster Gribbon) (April 23, 1879 – August 5, 1940) was an English writer. He also wrote under the pseudonym Walter Galt. Born in London, at age 16 he ran away from home and began an odyssey in India, Africa, and other parts of the Near and Far East. By age 29, he had begun using the name Talbot Mundy, and a year later arrived in the United States, starting his writing career in 1911. His first published work was the short story "Pig-Sticking in India", which describes a popular, though now outlawed, sport practiced by British forces.
British agent Athelstan King and American Greg Ramsden match wits with a Hindu mahatma and Yasmini, a mysterious princess, as King and Ramsden try to block a plot to free India from British rule. Their pursuit of the conspiracy takes them into underground caves populated by underfed crocodiles and panthers, as well as Hindu holy men conducting incredible experiments in telepathy, clairvoyance, and much more! A thrilling novel.
