The Death of Fu Manchu

Actually it’s not the ‘Death’, because nobody can kill Fu Manchu, but it is the end of this week’s series of posts featuring the Devil Doctor. Of course, Fu Manchu will return – ‘The World shall here from me again’, as Christopher Lee would say at the end of each of the Harry Alan Towers movies.

I think it has been a good week, and I have found out quite a bit of new information (new to me, that is) and have a few books to acquire and read: Ten Years Beyond Baker Street, which features Sherlock Holmes stepping in for Nayland Smith, in the dogged pursuit of Fu Manchu. Also The Rainbow Affair, by David McDaniel, the thirteenth in the American Man From UNCLE novels. How can you go wrong — Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin tracking down the evil mastermind.
