The Magician Out of Manchuria is pure fantasy -- and it is pure fun! It is the tale of a not-so-simple magician whose curious and meandering wanderings are directed toward the peaceful and prosperous villages of the South. Here he hopes to entertain and amuse -- to his profit -- the local populaces with his magic and chicanery.|
His companions are the youthful chela, who is unnamed, and the black ass Ng Gk. This robust company is quickly supplemented by no less a figure than the Lustful Queen of La who has been outlawed by the devious conniving and politics of Khan Ali Bok. And there the real fun begins!
