secret hands of the wise and powerful Group of Nine) but this particular copy fails in its
presentation of the text. Evidently someone simply scanned an original copy of the book,
did fast character recognition and reprinted the whole thing as a print-on-demand cheap version.
When you do this, however, you're supposed to proofread what the software has done to avoid
stupid mistakes. The publisher of this cheap version never bothered, so almost every page is
marred with errors, such as "lie" instead of "he" (how was the computer supposed to know the
difference?) and "the other tight" instead of "the other eight", "burt" instead of "but", and even
"All ben Ali" instead of "Ali ben Ali".
To some extent these silly misprints deepen Talbot Mundy's mystery, but they also make
for arduous and sometimes very frustrating reading of an otherwise good novel.
So disappointed! A thoroughly stupid book and a waste of time.
I have always said that in even the worst book I have learned something, but this book is the exception to the rule.
In this particular adventure, our heroes are made aware of ancient mysteries, and of the fabled Nine Unknown -- masters of great power & knowledge who have subtly guided humanity for millennia. But who are the real ones, and who are the pretenders desperately seeking that power for their own very un-spiritual uses?
Yes, some of this is pure pulp hokum by contemporary standards -- but so what? While Mundy was a skilled story-teller, he was clearly interested in something more, as his philosophical thoughts show up in all of his work. If you're in the mood for that sort of story, then you've come to the right place -- cheerfully recommended!
