Alexandre Dumas wrote seventy-five chapters of The Red Sphinx, all for serial publication, but he never quite finished it, and so the novel languished for almost a century before its first book publication in France in 1946. While Dumas never completed the book, he had earlier written a separate novella The Dove, that recounted the final adventures of Moret and Cardinal Richelieu.
Now for the first time, in one cohesive narrative, The Red Sphinx and The Dove make a complete and satisfying storyline―a rip-roaring novel of historical adventure, heretofore unknown to English-language readers, by the great Alexandre Dumas, king of the swashbucklers.
Lawrence Ellsworth, translator of Dumas’s The Red Sphinx and editor of The Big Book of Swashbuckling Adventure, is dedicated to bringing great historical adventure fiction from the last two centuries to contemporary readers. He’s currently working on modern translations of Dumas’s entire Musketeers series. Lawrence Ellsworth is the pen name of Lawrence Schick, a longtime writer and game designer who’s worked in the field of role-playing games since the early days of Dungeons & Dragons in the 1970s.
