Mundy, Talbot: The Nine Unknown. V1. 19 Mar 2012
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.
The heroes of Mundy's Indian novels (Jimgrim, Ramsden, Chullunder Ghose, Narayan Singh & Athelstan King, of the Kyber Rifles) join together to confront mankind's secret rulers (the Nine Who Rule).
