Author: Fred M. White
Publisher: Delphi Classics
A British pulp fiction author of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, Frederick M. White produced a prolific number of novels and short stories, including the cult classic 'Doom of London' science-fiction stories. Helping to shape the course of sensation and mystery story literature, White was also a pioneer of the spy story. His ingenious creativity in producing hundreds of original and thrilling narratives of crime, war, mystery, romance and science fiction was a rare and sadly neglected talent of the interwar period.
