The Fascination of the King

The Fascination of the King

(1898)
A novel by

 
Guy Newell Boothby (13 October 1867 - 26 February 1905) was a prolific Australian novelist and writer, noted for sensational fiction in variety magazines around the end of the nineteenth century. He lived mainly in England. He is best known for such works as the Dr Nikola series, about an occultist criminal mastermind who is a Victorian forerunner to Fu Manchu, and Pharos, the Egyptian. Rudyard Kipling was his friend and mentor, and his books were remembered with affection by George Orwell.

Excerpt:
At sundown that evening the king was conscious, and asked for me. The doctor having given his permission, Olivia came in search of me, and found me sitting with Natalie upon the battlements. I rose immediately his Majesty's request was made know to me, and accompanied her downstairs to the sic! room.
Nerved as I was to see a change in the man before me, I was quite unprepared for the terrible picture he presented as I entered the room. His always thin face was now that of a skeleton covered with a dead white skin, from which his dark eyes stared like lumps of coal. He seemed, moreover, to have shrunk to half his former size, and this in less than a week.
