Fu-Manchu is Back and His Daughter’s Come Along Too

Dr. Fu-Manchu is one of the most iconic characters in not just literature but also on screen. His very name conjures up images of that face and his famous facial hair. Well Titan have started to reprint the entire collection and the next one to be released is Daughter of Fu-Manchu which is once again written by the late Sax Rhomer who wrote 13 books based around the nefarious mastermind.

Dr. Fu-Manchu is back once again in DAUGHTER OF FU-MANCHU [Titan Books, September 2012], the fourth installment of a gripping, brand new exclusive series of the only complete and authorized set of the world-famous FU-MANCHU novels, authored by Sax Rohmer.

London, 1913 ̶ the era of Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, and the Invisible Man. A time of shadows, secret societies, and dens filled with opium addicts. Into this world comes the most fantastic emissary of evil society has ever known…Fu-Manchu.
This time, the evil mastermind faces his greatest challenge yet – his own daughter! Across the sands of Egypt, Nayland Smith pursues Fah Lo Suee, the deadly daughter of Fu-Manchu. Possessed of all her father’s subversive secrets and driven by his unquenchable thirst for power, she has pillaged the tomb of the Black Ape for the key to its ancient mysteries – and therefore leadership over all the evil cults of the East. No one can stop her – except perhaps Fu-Manchu himself!
The original adventures of the character who inspired generations of villains, from Ming the Merciless to Dr. No, is now being published in brand new editions available for the first time in years. They are eerie, violent, sexy, and controversial, involving deadly killers and exotic women against an international backdrop. FU-MANCHU is one of the most iconic characters of the 20th Century, and as much a household name as Sherlock Holmes and James Bond.
Each volume in this spectacular new collection will include a revealing essay by Leslie S. Klinger, famed for the Edgar Award-winning New Annotated Sherlock Holmes and the critically acclaimed New Annotated Dracula.

THE MYSTERY OF DR. FU-MANCHU, THE RETURN OF DR. FU-MANCHU and THE HAND OF FU-MANCHU are the first releases in Titan’s complete FU-MANCHU library series.
