Ernest Bramah
KtoCzyta.pl
Working name of UK author Ernest Brammah Smith (1868-1942) for all his writing; he is best-known for two series, the Max Carrados books about a blind detective, all of whose Perceptions are enormously enhanced, and a series of tales in which the Chinese Kai Lung tells stories – often to stave off some unpleasant fate, like Scheherazade. At the height of his fame, Bramah’s mystery tales, featuring the blind detective, appeared alongside Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories in the Strand Magazine, even occasionally outselling them. This early work by Ernest Bramah was originally published in 1924. A collection of twenty-one short stories which bridge, in the process of their writing, thirty years of life, one featuring Kai Lung and another featuring blind detective Max Carrados. Highly recommended this entertaining reading!
