About the Author: H. Rider Haggard

Sir Henry Rider Haggard was an English writer of adventure novels set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa, and the creator of the Lost World literary genre. His stories, situated at the lighter end of the scale of Victorian literature, continue to be popular and influential. He was also involved in agricultural reform and improvement in the British Empire.

His breakout novel was King Solomon's Mines (1885), which was to be the first in a series telling of the multitudinous adventures of its protagonist, Allan Quatermain.

Haggard was made a Knight Bachelor in 1912 and a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1919. He stood unsuccessfully for Parliament as a Conservative candidate for the Eastern division of Norfolk in 1895. The locality of Rider, British Columbia, was named in his memory.

Sir Henry Rider Haggard wrote adventure novels set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa, and a pioneer of the Lost World literary genre. His stories, situated at the lighter end of Victorian literature, continue to be popular and influential. Visions of a past life given to a fictional modern observer provide the material for The Wanderer's Necklace. The English reincarnation of a Norse warrior describes his early passions and trials in the marshes of Denmark, his confrontations with Odin, his service in the court of Byzantium, and the mysteries of ancient Egypt. The conceit of partial recollection lets Haggard skip dull transitions and get right from one dramatic moment to the next. In Byzantium, earnest young Olaf must face madness, greed, lust, and cowardice in those around him for the sake of his own honor and the love of his life.
