let us all take a moment to salute Edwin Lester Arnold, who dedicated his life to bequeathing the world with such literary gems as
- the adventures of an ANCIENT PHOENICIAN warrior who goes in and out of an unexplained state of suspended animation in order to be a witness to invasions or attempted invasions of England.
- a work of fiction set in modern day Rome wherein Lepidus the Centurion takes the reader on a journey of his civilization and life.
- a military man stands on a magic carpet which transports him to MARS and his adventures there; its “lukewarm reception led him to stop writing fiction.”
let us remember him - frater, ave atque vale!
