Children of the Wind
M.P. Shiel is a British writer of West Indian descent. He is remembered mostly for supernatural and scientific romances, published as serials, novels, and as short stories. „Children of the Wind” adventure set in South Central Africa. A lost race novel. An English scientist learns that the „White Queen” of the Wa-Ngwanyas is his own cousin and heiress to a fortune of which she is being kept in ignorance. There are tribal warfare including biological warfare, lesbianism, and vibrant plotting – a full-blooded story done in Shiel ’s fabulously refreshing style – written after a ten-year hiatus. Highly recommended!
