The fortunes of Casanova, and other stories by Rafael Sabatini( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Full of pace, incident, and plot, the stories often contain a strong element of crime, mystery, and suspense. Although hanged at Tyburn, Sir Geoffrey Swayne, in 'The Risen Dead', is resurrected only to have his plot to gain a fortune foiled by his vengeful wife; in 'The Plague of Ghosts', the ingenious Capoulade, thief turned police spy, breaks up a forger's den and in the process cracks an 'impossible crime'. In the second half of the book, a series of stories featuring Casanova, Sabatini takes nine colourful exploits from the notorious Memoirs of the libertine, swordsman, and wit, and retells them with humour and gusto. Sabatini's works had a great influence on later writers of popular historical fiction, and George MacDonald Fraser, author of the Flashman novels and an admirer of his writing, contributes a Foreword to this volume
