Doctor Nikola Returns

It was a deal with the devil, and the devil’s name was Nikola — Doctor Nikola, precursor to Fu Manchu. But Wilfred Bruce needed the money, and he took the work because he needed it. It was only after he?

Doctor Nikola’s Experiment

The work of my predecessors is known to me; I have studied their writings, and tested their experiments to the last particular. All the knowledge that modern science has accumulated I have acquired. The magic of the East I have explored and tested to the uttermost. Three years ago I visited Thibet under extraordinary circumstances. There, in a certain place, inaccessible to the ordinary man, and at the risk of my own life and that of the brave man who accompanied me, I obtained the information which was destined to prove the coping stone of the great discovery I have since made. Only two things were wanting then to . . complete the whole and to enable me to get to work. One of these I had just found in St. Petersburg when I first met you, Kelleran; the other I discovered three weeks ago. It has been a long and tedious search, but such labour only makes success the sweeter. The machinery is now prepared; all that remains is to fit the various parts together. In six months’ time, if all goes well, I will have a man walking upon this earth who, under certain conditions, shall live a thousand years.

A Prince of Swindlers

A collection of Victorian era sensational crime stories. Boothby’s gentleman rogue a burglar and second story man was a member of the upper crust, similar to Hornung’s Raffles character, but actually created prior to Raffles. This collection includes eight episodes of Simon Carne adventures.

Guy Boothby was also the author of The Kidnapped President, Doctor Nikola, and In the Power of the Sultan.

‘A breath taking crook story that will satisfy any reader’s appetite for thrills. One smart, fearless, and clever scoundrel keeps an entire city in terror. This is one of the best works of a great mystery story writer.’

‘After no small amount of deliberation, I have come to the conclusion that it is only fit and proper I should set myself right with the world in the matter of the now famous 18 swindles. For, though I have never been openly accused of complicity in those miserable affairs, yet I cannot rid myself of the remembrance that it was I who introduced the man who perpetrated them to London society, and that in more than one instance I acted, innocently enough, Heaven knows, as his Deus ex machina, in bringing about the very results he was so anxious to achieve. I will first allude, in a few words, to the year in which the crimes took place, and then proceed to describe the events that led to my receiving the confession which has so strangely and unexpectedly come into my hands.’

The Crime of the Underseas

Publisher: London : Ward, Lock

A Professor of Egyptology

How long I stood at the window I cannot say; it may have been only five minutes, it might have been an hour. Then, suddenly, an extraordinary thing happened. I knew that it was imprudent, I was aware that it was even wrong, but an overwhelming craving to go out seized me. I felt as if the house were stifling me and that if I did not get out into the cool night air, and within a few minutes, I should die.
