Two ingenious 1920s mysteries make a welcome comeback this month, with Grey Face and The Green Eyes of Bâst published together in an exciting new collection from Stark House Press. In the first shocking tale, a ghastly phantom terrorizes Londoners, haunting their dreams. The latter unsettles the reader with enthralling revelations concerning a cat-like creature.
Arthur Henry Sarsfield Ward (1883 – 1959), aka Sax Rohmer, is best known as the man responsible for tales of the fiendish Dr. Fu Manchu. He also enjoyed enormous success with these mesmerizing occult masterpieces.
This fourth collection of suspenseful Sax Rohmer mysteries released by the publisher also contains an introduction by the editor of Lowestoft Chronicle, who provides a detailed examination of these works and their initial critical reception.
