Yasmini the Incomparable by Talbot Mundy
Trade Paperback – Murania Press – May 2019 – 213 pages
Introducing pulp fiction’s first great femme fatale—the enduring creation of a master storyteller!
Of his most alluring female character—whom he described as having Indian, Russian, and Scandinavian blood—Talbot Mundy wrote: “She is of the East and the West, very terribly endowed with all the charms of either and the brains of both.” This book reprints the 1914 novelette “A Soldier and a Gentleman,” which introduced Yasmini to readers of that wonderful pulp Adventure, and the 1915 novel Winds of the World, in which the secrets of India attract international schemers as the First World War commences—while Yasmini uses her wits and her charms to secure power and influence. Mundy’s first memorable novel teems with action, intrigue, and melodrama.
