Read full description of the books The Devil Wives of Li Fong:No man is happier than Li Fong -- until he discovers his lovely wives are really serpent-demons! Long and long ago, before the foreign devils came, old China was a land of ancient culture and strange magic. There, Li Fong, a student of apothecary, seems the luckiest of men. By what has to be happy chance, he has been led to take two charming and quite wealthy ladies as his wives.
How could he know that his loving and beloved Mei Ling and Meilan are really spirit-demons? Or that the great snake that comes to his aid is really Mei Ling in her natural form?
But the wicked Taoist magician Chang Lu knows the truth and plots evil for Li Fong and his wives. Nor can the magic of Mei Ling prevail, though she struggles to protect her husband and gain true humanity for herself.
In the end, she can only summon the beautiful and terrible dragons to her aid!
Read information about the authorOriginally intending to be a career soldier, Price graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point; he served in the American Expeditionary Force in World War I, and with the American military in Mexico and the Philippines. He was a champion fencer and boxer, an amateur Orientalist, and a student of the Arabic language; science-fiction author Jack Williamson, in his 1984 autobiography Wonder's Child, called E. Hoffmann Price a "real live soldier of fortune."
In his literary career, Hoffmann Price produced fiction for a wide range of publications, from Argosy to Terror Tales, from Speed Detective to Spicy Mystery Stories. Yet he was most readily identified as a Weird Tales writer, one of the group who wrote regularly for editor Farnsworth Wright, a group that included Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and Clark Ashton Smith. Price published 24 solo stories in "the Unique Magazine" between 1925 and 1950, plus three collaborations with Otis Adelbert Kline, and his works with Lovecraft.
