A Cabinet Secret

(1901)
A novel by

 
 
Sharp emissary undertaking at the time of the Boer Wars of the last years of the 19th century.

Guy Newell Boothby was a famous Australian author, notable for memorable stories in various magazines in the last years of the 19th century. He resided mostly in England. He is most popular for his novels such as the Dr. Nikola series, of an occultist lawbreaker who is a Victorian augury to Fu Manchu, and Pharos, the Egyptian, a story of Gothic Egypt, cadavers' spells and uncanny vengeance. Rudyard Kipling was his colleague and mentor, and his novels were commemorated with devotion by George Orwell.

Guy was born in Adelaide to a well known family in the presently instituted British colony of South Australia. His father was Thomas Wilde Boothby, who for some time joined the South Australian Legislative Assembly, three of his uncles were senior colonial administrators, and his grandfather was Benjamin Boothby, polemic judge of the Supreme Court of South Australia. When Guy was about seven years old, his English-born mother, whom he had in profound respect, divorced from his father and resumed with her kids to England. There he took a conventional English grammar school education at Salisbury, Lord Weymouth's Grammar today called as Warminster School and Christ's Hospital, London.

Many of Guy's primary books recount to tales of Australian life, but then he spun to category fiction such as detective stories, majestic love, science fiction and Gothic repulsion. Guy's work is infused by a selection of enthralling and dissident rogues whose bigger than life creatures overshadow the unexceptional English heroes. They vary from the usual mystical evil persons at the end of the century gothic, to bent anomalies, to refined worldwide dominant delinquents that await the rivals of Ian Fleming's Bond character. Guy's stories were effective in creating two main anaphora of the filmic period.
