One of the great villain pulps from the 1930s is finally available in a complete, deluxe edition. Owing certain similarities to Sax Rohmer’s Fu Manchu, the Dr. Yen Sin series of three novels features “The Invisible Emperor” and his machinations to conquer the world using his unique mixture of futuristic science and ancient Asian technology. However, Yen Sin has met his match: “The Man Who Never Slept”—agent Michael Traile—who has the strange capability of not require sleep.
Includes an all-new introduction by current Fu Manchu author William Patrick Maynard, as well as a chronology of the character by Rick Lai.
Completely revised and expanded, Rick Lai’s authoritative chronology has been heavily updated to include Lester Dent’s radio scripts and new data unearthed from the recent restored Doc Savage reprint editions.
