High adventure on the roof of the world At the age of sixteen British author Talbot Mundy (William Lancaster Gribbon) ran away from home and travelled extensively through India, Africa, the Middle East and the Orient-an experience that stood him in good stead as he later crafted his bestselling novels. During this time he made his living as a petty criminal and confidence trickster. By the time he was twenty nine he had changed his name to Talbot Mundy, was living in the United States of America and had embarked on a writing career. He was well known as an author of novels with recurring characters and among his best known creations are Tros of Samothrace, Jimgrim and the principal character of the two novels in this Leonaur two-in-one edition-Lobsang Pun. 'The Most Reverend Lobsang Pun, ' known to all as 'Old Ugly Faces, ' is a mystical monk of venerable age, who lives in Tibet, a magical land of forbidden places and secret mountain fastnesses. 'The Thunder Dragon's Gate, ' the first novel here, is a high-spirited tale of heroic adventure featuring Tom Grayne and an audience pleasing fantastical creature or two for good measure. In 'Old Ugly Face, ' also featuring Tom Grayne, the Dalai Lama has died and the traditional search to find the new incarnation has begun, but Lobsang Pun intends to influence events in the interests of cosmic balance and world sanity. These high ideals are, of course, wrapped up in an absorbing story of love, jealousy, international intrigue, treachery, adversity and daring-do. This is an excellent opportunity for collectors to possess both Lobsang Pun novels in one substantial special edition.
