The Mummy (novel) - Allusions/references To Other Works

Allusions/references To Other Works

Rice credited authors of numerous turn-of-the-century mummy stories with her inspiration, including Arthur Conan Doyle and H. Rider Haggard. England during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries fell under a fad for Ancient Egypt, a phenomenon also known as Egyptomania; this movement created many works of fiction which Rice could draw from.

This novel is dedicated with love to Stan Rice and Christopher Rice
And to Gita Mehta an instant inspiration
And to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for his great mummy stories "Lot No. 249" and "The Ring of Thoth"
And to H. Rider Haggard who created the immortal She
And to All who have brought "the mummy" to life in stories, novels and film.
And lastly to My father Howard O'Brien who came more than once to get me from the neighborhood show, when "the mummy" had scared me so badly that I couldn't even stay in the lobby with the creepy music coming through the doors.

Famous quotes containing the word works:

    In the works of man, everything is as poor as its author; vision is confined, means are limited, scope is restricted, movements are labored, and results are humdrum.
