Fu Manchu on Audio
A century ago, Sax Rohmer introduced the world to a malevolent genius destined to become one of the most iconic fictional villains ever created: the fiendish Doctor Fu Manchu, “the Yellow Peril incarnate”.
Today Fantom are bringing Sax Rohmer’s tales to life in brand new unabridged audio books read by Phil Reynolds in a licensing deal with The Authors’ League of America and the Society of Authors in the UK.
While Rohmer’s characters are a product of their time, the fun and excitement of his plots cannot be denied. The grudging mutual respect between Smith and Fu Manchu echoes that of Holmes and Moriarty, but the pace and thrills of these action-led stories set the style for later heroes from Bulldog Drummond to James Bond.
The first audio The Mystery of Dr Fu Manchu is now available in a seven disc set (£19.99) and download (£13.99) and the next adventure The Return of Dr Fu Manchu will be released next month.
