William Le Queux

$ 2.99

The Anglo-French novelist William Le Queux penned popular thrillers and intriguing espionage novels. He led an adventurous life, in keeping with his fiction, serving as a diplomat for San Marino, while extensively travelling Europe, the Balkans and North Africa. He was also a flying buff and a wireless pioneer, who broadcasted music from his own station long before radio was generally available. His most famous works are the invasion fantasies ‘The Great War in England in 1897’ and ‘The Invasion of 1910’. Le Queux’s exaggerated tales and falsified accounts of Britain’s neighbours, playing upon the fervid xenophobia of the time, were so powerful and gripping that they led to the creation of Britain’s first Secret Service Bureau, the forerunner of MI5. This eBook presents the largest collection ever compiled of Le Queux’s fiction, with numerous illustrations, many rare texts and informative introductions. (Version 1)
