Book Synopsis
“The Devil’s Guard” stands as the penultimate adventure novel by the great pulp author born as William Lancaster Gribbon (1879–1940). Mundy was a British pulp writer of Oriental adventures, best known as the author of "King—of the Khyber Rifles," the Tros of Samothrace series, and the Jimgrim books. His work has often been compared with that of his more commercially successful contemporaries H. Rider Haggard and Rudyard Kipling, although unlike their work Mundy's adopted a relatively anti-colonialist stance and expressed a positive interest in Asian religion and philosophy. "Mundy was a man’s author, and readers looking for earth-shaking love romance must look elsewhere. Mundy’s heroes sought manhood above all else, and, though not averse to pulling fair damsels out of danger and distress, performed this duty without once losing sight of their high goal. In his books woman takes the place she occupies generally throughout the Orient, and man rises toward the throne of the gods."
