Ralestone Luck

by Andre Norton

Tales of Chinatown

by Sax Rohmer

Well, the author is hard on oriental
cultures, but that is a flaw of the times, specially on pulp fiction.
He is NOT as hard on the chinese as

Besides, considering how dumb the heroes, the police, and the british in general are portrayed, one might
say Sax Rohmer is hard on the british, too...
Also, Sax Rohmer has much more imagination and style than Sabatini.

I am firmly persuaded it was the inspiration for the Star Trek episode "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"

There are people, however, that plainly dislike pure SF, they like military, or spy stories spiced with SF props and scenery, hospital stories with SF spice, but not pure SF at all.

It their close-mindedness, and their loss....
