The Dragoman's Jest

Ah, to be an armchair adventurer in the 20s, 30s and 40s . . . so many books, movies, magazines, comics and pulps to heat up your blood. And the Orient was by far the location of choice to fight for freedom, riches and princesses, not necessarily in that order. Usually the babe was worth risking everything for.

Ah.. indeed! I have always had a deep love for the pulps and this is the kind of cover that makes me fall in love with them all over again.
