Further Information
Sax Rohmer, pseudonym for Arthur Henry Sarsfield Ward, was born in Birmingham, England, on 15 February 1883. Rohmer has become synonymous with the 'Yellow Peril' style of mystery novel, and, although he never started the genre, seems to have born the brunt of the subsequent criticism in more enlightened times. Initially the books were first published in the UK, but from 1927 onwards the majority have US precedence. The author did move to New York at some point in his life which may well account for the switch. He died in 1959.
