About this title:
About the Author: Sax Rohmer was born Arthur Henry Ward in Birmingham of Irish parents. His father, William Ward, was employed as an office clerk and eventually held the position of office manager. Rohmer's mother, Margaret Mary (Furey) Ward, was neurasthenic and increasingly dependent on alcohol. Young Sax Rohmer received no formal schooling until he was nine or ten years old, but his father probably taught his son to read. Rohmer adopted the name Sarsfield at the age of 18, impressed by his mother's alcoholic claims of being descended from a famous 17th-century Irish general Patrick Sarsfield. He later explained that the pen name came from 'sax' which was Saxon for 'blade' and 'rohmer' which meant 'roamer'. For periods during the 1920s and 1930s, Rohmer was one of the most widely read and most highly paid magazine writers in the English language. Rohmer's supernatural stories include BROOD OF THE WITCH QUEEN (1918), in which an Egyptian mummy is revived to practise ancient sorcery in the modern world, and THE GREEN EYES OF BÂST (1920), an occult detective tale about the mysteries of ancient Egypt. Between these two books, Sax Rohmer wrote DOPE, a mystery set in the midst of Chinatown and the opium trade that found its way to London. An eye-opening mystery a la Sax Rohmer!
