Ernest Bramah

Kindle (US version), Kindle, ePub (US version), ePub

The humorous works of Ernest Bramah were as popular as the contemporary tales of Jerome K. Jerome and W. W. Jacobs, while Bramah’s detective stories were published beside the Sherlock Holmes stories and his politico-science fiction was often compared with the works of H. G. Wells.  Bramah was a literary recluse, yet his innovative Kai Lung and Max Carrados stories continue to foster interest in this otherwise neglected Edwardian author. This comprehensive eBook presents Bramah’s complete fictional works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
