He married Rose Elizabeth Knox in 1909 and, at his wife's insistence, began using the name Sax Rohmer for his fiction, eventually employing the pseudonym as his actual name. Rohmer was basically a self-taught scholar. He started writing as a journalist; his beat was the Limehouse underworld in London

Romer's "Brood of the Witch-Queen" is set around World War I in post- Victorian England; most of the action is in England with some action taking place in Egypt. Rohmer's "Dr. Fu Manchu" books,away", are about an elusive arch-criminal who always "gets away" and thwarts the authorities to carry on his dastardly deeds another day in another adventure.
I will say though that Dr Joshi's introduction could have made more of the weird nature of Rohmer's best known work, the Fu Manchu series. Reading that was the reason I bought this, and by volume 8 in that collection we have eternal life, mind control, telepathy, worm-men, and stuff either horror, or sci-fi, or both.
