A new collection of ‘Kai Lung’ stories by Ernest Bramah, including four previously unpublished stories. Related by Kai Lung, an itinerant story-teller, these stories, set in an Ancient China that never was, entertain with their wonderful use of language, and readers will frequently find their ‘gravity displaced’ by a particularly apt turn of phrase.
This collection of eleven stories includes four previously unpublished stories. Of the remaining stories, six were published in a very limited edition (Kai Lung: Six) and the seventh has only appeared once before in print (The Specimen Case).
“A remarkable, welcome and unexpected collection”
— David Langford
“This stunning gem only today landed in this unworthy person's deficient and ill-formed hands. [...]
“As one who has in the past has made clumsy attempts at the daunting and Byzantine art of typesetting, my appreciation extends especially to the classically refined book design which your work exhibits.”
— John W. Shipman
