About Dragon Mystic

I fell in love with dragons when I read Tea With the Black Dragon, and never looked back. Not the clunky winged Medieval dragons that ate cows, the graceful Asian dragons that could fly without wings. Later I discovered the elegant Welsh dragons, red and white, as described by R.J. Stewart in his books on the historical Merlin.

One Response to The Feathered Serpent

  1. Hal Jordan says:

    Late Edgar Wallace thriller From the copyright date, it appears that Wallace published this novel near the end of his life. If it wasn’t his last book, it must have been nearly so. It’s a presentable mystery with a bit of romance thrown in. The murderer is fairly obvious early on, but I still found the story enjoyable. Wallace included some intentional self-parody, as when the characters several times remark that a particular turn of events was worthy of being included in a fictional thriller. This edition is very handsome with the cover reproducing what I assume must have been the original dust jacket.At one time, Edgar Wallace was I believe the best selling novelist in the world. Today he is largely forgotten and most of his books are out of print, at least in the United States. So, if you have never read him, this book is a reasonable place to start.
