The Cardinal Moth

Sir Clement Frobisher has a great passion in life--collecting rare orchids. But the cardinal moth is like a Holy Grail, and he will do anything to obtain and keep it. His actions will spark amani a trouble in this interesting mystery. Frederick Merrick White (1859-1935) wrote a number of novels and short stories under the name 'Fred M. White' including the six 'Doom of London' science-fiction stories, in which various catastrophes beset London. These include The Four Days' Night (1903), in which London is beset by a massive killer smog; The Dust of Death (1903), in which diphtheria infects the city, spreading from refuse tips and sewers; and The Four White Days (1903), in which a sudden and deep winter paralyses the city under snow and ice. These six stories all first appeared in Pearson's Magazine, and were illustrated by Warwick Goble. He was also a pioneer of the spy story, and in 2003, his series The Romance of the Secret Service Fund (written in 1899) was edited by Douglas G. Greene and published by Battered Silicon Dispatch Box.
