Robert Cairn looked out across the quadrangle. The moon had just arisen, and it softened the beauty of the old college buildings, mellowed the harshness of time, casting shadow pools beneath the cloisteresque arches to the west and setting out the ivy in stronger relief upon the ancient walls. The barred shadow on the lichened stones beyond the elm was cast by the hidden gate; and straight ahead, where, between a quaint chimney-stack and a bartizan, a triangular patch of blue showed like spangled velvet, lay the Thames. It was from there the cooling breeze came.

About the Author:

Arthur Henry Sarsfield Ward, known to readers as Sax Rohmer, was born in Birmingham on February 15, 1883 to a working class Irish Catholic family. He started his career writing songs and comedy sketches for Music Hall revues, selling his first story to Pearson’s Weekly in 1903. His first novel, The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu, originally serialized in 1912, introduced the world to this mysterious and elusive villain, eventually featured in twelve subsequent novels. Rohmer took painstaking care in his arcane research, with many mysteries featuring such occult investigative characters as Gaston Max, “Red” Kerry, Morris Klaw and Paul Harley. Besides also authoring several novels of supernatural horror, toward the end of his career, Rohmer enjoyed another success with a female Fu Manchu known as Sumuru. He married Rose Elizabeth Knox in 1909 and after World War II, they moved to New York, returning to London shortly before Rohmer’s death in London on June 1, 1959, of influenza.

Review:

...fast-paced, clever, ingeniously contrived and thoroughly enjoyable... with vampires, black magic and occult powers that have lain dormant since the days of Ancient Egypt. --Vintage Pop Fictions

[Rohmer s] chief love was the mysticism of Egypt and this is clearly apparent in his best novel, Brood of the Witch Queen. --Mike Ashley, Who s Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction

A non-stop Sax Rohmer yarn. A slipper believed to belong to the prophet Mohammed has been stolen by a British archaeologist and a Muslim sect are after all who come into contact with it. --GoodReads
