The Skull of Shirzad Mir: Adventures of Abdul Dost

by Harold Lamb

Paperback reprint of five stories that originally appeared in Adventure magazine.

Abdul Dost, the Moslem swordsman teams up with the Englishman Sir Ralph Weyand through five consecutive adventures -- "The Skull of Shirzad Mir,", "Said Afzel's Elephant," "Prophecy of the Blind," "Rose Face," and culminating in the novel, "Ameer of the Sea" -- to free the imprisoned rightful ruler Shirzad Mir and restore his lands to him from the tyranny of theevil Uzbek lord, Jani Beg.

"We were three men with two horses and two swords. We were outcasts in the thickets of the foot-hills of the Badakshan, under the peaks of the Roof of the World. We had earned the wrath of the Mogul of India and there were two thousand riders searching for us.

"It was the year of the Ox -- the year 1608 by the Christian calendar -- and Jani Beg, the Uzbek, had taken Badakshan from my lorder, Baber Shirzad Mir, sometimes called the Tiger Lord.

"Nevertheless, we three were happy. We had taken Shirzad Mir from the hands of Jani Beg, who had marked him for death." -- thus runs the account of Abdul Dost as recorded in "Rose Face".
