Overview

E. Phillips Oppenheim was the prince of storytellers. In his lifetime he published over 150 books—novels, story collections, plays, travel books and autobiographical works. But a handful of his stories were never published in book form. They appeared in magazines like The Strand, Windsor Magazine and Cosmopolitan in the early 1900's, and have never been reprinted since.

Editor Daniel Paul Morrison has scoured libraries and resource centers, and has put together the first new collection of Oppenheim material in over sixty years--nineteen stories of mystery and political intrigue, duplicity and romance. Oppenheim could always be counted on to tell a good story, and this collection is guaranteed to keep you entertained.

Secrets and Sovereigns also features the most complete bibliography ever published of the works of E. Phillips Oppenheim. Morrison has thoroughly researched this project, checking publication dates against his vast Oppenheim collection as well as a wide array of book sources, and can honestly say that this is the definitive list, even better than the "official" Oppenheim bibliographies that appear in the Little, Brown editions. His introduction is chock full of information as well.

Whether you are a reader or a collector, there is something here for everyone.

Editorial Reviews

Barrie Hayne
"E. Phillips Oppenheim. . . spun 150 novels out of one of the most fertile imaginations ever to apply itself to the thriller. . . for readers looking for diversion with a shudder or a thrill one can still repeat Will Cuppy's 1934 axiom: 'When in doubt, grab an Oppenheim.'"
