Overview

Two Egyptian thrillers are included in this volume specially formatted for ebook so that the pioneer in gothic horror may be enjoyed by new generations. The first is a short story about a Professor of Egyptology and the second is of novel length entitled "Pharos."
Docile English artist, Cyril Forrester, inherits a collection of artifacts which include a splendid sarcophagus from his father, who was an Egyptologist. Soon thereafter, Pharos who appears to be a contemporary Egyptian, appears at Forrester’s door determined to get possession of the sarcophagus. Pharos is actually the original resident of the sarcophagus, and his endeavour to repossess it is but a fraction of his greater objective of getting back at Europe for their meddling in and pilfering of the sacred things of Egypt. Pharos, cursed with eternal life by the ancient Egyptian gods, and commanded to exact their revenge against the European plunderers of Egypt, lures Forrester to Egypt where he becomes infected with a vituperative illness. Returning to England, Forrester spreads this horrible disease across Europe to London, and millions die. Pharos’s malicious nature is apparent from the beginning of the novel, when Forrester finds him rather enjoying watching a suicide take place on the Thames.
