The Return of the Revenge of Fu Manchu. YAY!

If you didn't guess by the title, Fu Manchu is back, in a new novel by William Patrick Maynard. I don't know much about other than in set during The Hand of Fu Manchu. so its most likely going to end up something like Ten Years Beyond Baker Street except with out Sherlock Holmes.
You can see its page and eventually pre-order it at:

A shout out to Win Scott Eckert and his blog for alerting me to this book. Thanks man!

Also at my other blog Ive posted the original magazine version of the first few chapters of The Insidious Dr. Fu Manchu. They are a little bit different then the final book version. Nothing earth shattering though. but enough to be interesting.


  1. It's my pleasure. I've read the series several times, it's one of my top favorites! So I literally cannot wait for this book.

  2. Nor can I wait, although I still on my first read through.
    But I'm really not a fan of the cover art though, What were they thinking?

  3. Thanks for posting this. I hope you enjoy the book. If you're familiar with TEN YEARS BEYOND BAKER STREET, you might recall Van Ash's passing mention of an unrecorded shocking adventure just before Christmas - that's the jumping on point of the book. It should be available to order from Black Coat Press direct or from and the more adventurous bookstores by the first of April. In a week that has seen the loss of both Phil Farmer and Bob Quarry, this post did a fair bit to cheer me so thanks again.

  4. You are more than welcome Billnsteff. I'm just glad I could make you day a little brighter.
