About the author:
Novelist, Screenwriter, Thea von Harbou (1888 - 1954) was a powerhouse of creativity during her life. She is best known today for the screenplays she created with and for the German-American director Fritz Lang between 1920 and 1933, including arguably the first two modern, feature-length science fiction movies ever made: Metropolis (1927) and Woman in the Moon (1929). She wrote The Indian Tomb in 1917, and it was a sensation in Germany, reprinted numerous times, and selected to be adapted as a film three times over four decades.

The Indian Tomb
 

Authored by Thea von Harbou
Translated by John Mucci, Richard Felnagle

The mysterious, fabulously wealthy Maharajah of Eschnapur kidnaps famous architect Michael Fürbringer and offers him unlimited resources to build a tomb to exceed the grandeur of the Taj Mahal. But the calculating, all-powerful prince is not what he seems, and the commission is actually the centerpiece of a diabolical murder plot. An unwilling journey into the heart of darkness begins Fürbringer's descent into a sinister, dream-like India, where he is imprisoned in a labyrinthine palace full of dark secrets and is ultimately forced to run for his life.

Although filmed three times, Thea von Harbou's mystery-suspense-fantasy is presented here in English for the first time since its original publication in 1918.
