    I like reading old stories Stories from the 20s and 30s have a different way of being told than stories from today There are different assumptions regarding what should be common knowledge to the reader, different interactions between men and women, Asians and English, that all play a part in these Sax Rohmer stories He s better known for the Fu Manchu tales, but I was in a short story mood when I found Tales of Chinatown as a free Kindle Download Some of the stories share a few threads here I like reading old stories Stories from the 20s and 30s have a different way of being told than stories from today There are different assumptions regarding what should be common knowledge to the reader, different interactions between men and women, Asians and English, that all play a part in these Sax Rohmer stories He s better known for the Fu Manchu tales, but I was in a short story mood when I found Tales of Chinatown as a free Kindle Download Some of the stories s...

    A collection of short stories that take place in London s Chinatown, mostly murder mysteries As a free download, I can t complain because it was a free download for my Kindle They were written a long time ago, making it a bit easier to overlook the blatant racial stereotyping of many nationalities Each story was short enough to enjoy but also long enough to allow its characters to develop Some of the stories had the same characters so it was almost as if I had been reading about old friends A ...
