Country: Great Britain Born: November 6, 1910 Died: April 11, 1989 Real name: John William Wall John William Wall, who published his works of art under the pseudonym Sarban, is an English writer and diplomat who is a connoisseur of the Middle East. Born in Mexborough, Yorkshire, the son of a railway conductor. He graduated with honors from Cambridge, after graduating from the university was in the diplomatic service in the Middle East and North African countries, was also the British Ambassador to Paraguay and Consul General in Alexandria (Egypt). He retired in 1966 from the post of British Consul General in Egypt and served in the Foreign Ministry for another ten years, until his retirement. Sarban is the author of only two novels, The Sound of His Horn and The Doll Maker, published one year apart, and two collections of short stories during his lifetime. Small in volume, his original and unlike anything heritage, according to Kingsley Amis, "a combination of dreams and nightmares", firmly entered the golden fund of English black literature. The remaining prose - Sarban`s "creepy stories" - an example of classic "ghost stories" (ghost stories), and is largely due to the flowering of this genre in the late 19th century, in the "yellow nineties", named after the famous decadent magazine "Yellow Book" ... The action of his most famous story, "Megaliths", which gave the name to the collection of the same name (1951), unfolds around megalithic structures somewhere in the north of England, which serve as a haven for evil fairies. Possession by demons, outlandish worlds lost in distant lands, oriental exoticism are also a sign of other short stories by Sarban, a connoisseur of Arabic and Farsi. It is known that Sarban worked out his works very carefully, for years working on each text. Hence - a small amount of published. Recently, through the efforts of the publishing house Tartarus Press, collections of Sarban`s texts unpublished during his lifetime have been published, although at least two novels and dozens of stories remain in the manuscript.
