Why has Sir Baldwin Frazer, England’s most celebrated brain surgeon, been kidnapped by the Si Fan? Sax Rohmer, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.
Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

If you can step up with $5/month, that really goes a long way. I just love the ‘thank you’ code system we’ve got going. I’ve always tried to over deliver, and when it comes to saying ‘thank you’, I like to go all out. Thank you so much for helping us out.
Again, the website is classictalesaudiobooks, all one word, dot com.
We also have a merchandise store, and my invention of the hybrid audiobook you can check out. Links for all of these are available in the description for this episode.
I hope you are enjoying the bite size portions of The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. The Meditations are being released exclusively through the special features on the Classic Tales App. In the app, tap on the box with a bow on the left when you play the episode. That’s the special features area. It’s like a present!
Today we continue our series of The Hand of Fu-Manchu, by Sax Rohmer.
As with last week, and during the run of this series, as you run into objectionable stuff today, feel free to talk about it with your friends. Point out the problems with your kids. Racism and misogyny thrive in the darkness. Let’s see where we were, and clean this out of our culture through honest and informed discussion.
For those of you who like epic World War III sagas, continue listening after the end of the episode to hear a special sneak peek of a book I have recorded that just recently hit the virtual shelves at Audible. Don’t miss “Battlefield Pacific”, by James Rosone and Miranda Watson. Military adventure that’s profanity free. It’s special to me because it’s also my 500th audiobook.
And now, The Hand of Fu-Manchu, part 4 of 7, by Sax Rohmer.
