    Book synopsis: 2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the first appearance of one of the world's most notorious fictional villains, the fiendish Dr Fu Manchu, """"the Yellow Peril incarnate in one man"""": master criminal, evil scientist and lord of strange deaths. Fu Manchu's creator, Sax Rohmer (Arthur Sarsfield Ward, 1883-1959) was the king of pulp exotica. This groundbreaking collection of essays and appreciations considers the work, contexts and enduring fascination of Rohmer, from fin-de-siecle racial anxieties to Egypt, anarchists, and the occult.
