Overview

"The Ghost Kings" was H. Rider Haggard's 32nd novel, out of an eventual 58. Written during the years 1906 and '07, it first saw book publication in September 1908. This novel was penned immediately before Haggard set to work on another African adventure tale, "The Yellow God," but of the two, "The Ghost Kings" is the superior creation. It is more exciting and more detailed, with a greater emphasis on fantasy elements and the supernatural. Indeed, with the exception of its South African setting and the inclusion of such real-life characters as the Zulu chief Dingaan (brother of Chaka) and councilor Mopo (both of whom also featured prominently in Haggard's 1892 masterpiece "Nada the Lily"), the tale could almost be a novel of hard fantasy.
