Overview

The Golden Scorpion by Sax Rohmer by Sax Rohmer

"Scorpion!" Years before the whispered word had thrilled and alarmed Dr. Stuart. He had watched the Scorpion pass--a terrifying figure, in his monkish cowl and green veil, through which baleful eyes glittered. Now the scorpion had come again, in the form of a golden fragment, innocent enough in appearance, but in fact the symbol of a band as malevolent and desperate as that of Fu-Manchu.

About the Author

Arthur Henry Sarsfield Ward (1883-1959), better known as Sax Rohmer, was a prolific English weird fiction and occult writer. After working as a poet, songwriter, and comedy sketch writer in Music Hall, Ward turned to weird fiction, writing under the pseudonym Sax Rohmer. His best known work included his archetypal Chinese supervillain and criminal genius Dr. Fu Manchu, which first appeared in print in 1910. Dr. Fu Manchu proved to be an enduring part of Rohmer's work and made him one of the most successful and well-paid writers of the 1920s and 1930s.
