The Complete Anthony of Arran (Deluxe Edition)

$85.00

The first of Talbot Mundy’s great recurring heroes, Dick Anthony is a headstrong Scotsman who abandons home, hearth and heritage to seek his fortune in a wider world. Sailing east in a sturdy ketch, armed with the ancestral sword of his clan, he braves storms both natural and manmade, landing in cryptic Egypt before moving on to meet his true destiny—no longer Richard Anthony of Arran, but King Dick of Iran!

Before Athelstan King, before Jimgrim, even before Lawrence of Arabia, Talbot Mundy’s fearless fighter swept across the Middle East like no warrior since the era of Alexander the Great!

Collecting the entire series, as it originally appeared in the pages of Adventure magazine, complete and uncut. As a bonus, this edition also includes all of the edited syndicated newspaper versions of the stories. Also includes an all-new introduction by Mundy authority Will Murray.
