"Gyldendals Omnibus book is based on the principle, that it should contain something for all people and all occations. The main concept is this -- In one single book -- you find reading for the whole holiday. Whether it is sunny or raining, you have several novels or short stories full of excitement"

Contents: a brief passage from Fu Manchu's Mysterium (the Danish translation of The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu), a "cast of characters" listing the main continuing characters from the Fu Manchu series, a concise bibliography of U.S., British, and Danish first editions of the Fu Manchu series, a filmography, and brief addenda on TV and radio versions, August Derleth's "Old Doctor of Limehouse" clone, and brief mention of secondary material about Rohmer and Fu Manchu.

The classic description of Fu Manchu in Danish:

   "Forestil Dem en Mand, der er høj, mager, kattesmidig, bredskuldret, har en Pande som Shakespeare og et Ansigt som den onde selv, med glatbarberet Isse og lange, smalle, magnetiske, grønne Øjne. Iklæd ham den orientalske Races hele Snedighed, giv ham al den Kundskab, som Fortidens og Nutidens Videnskab raader over, giv ham en rig Regerings Pengemidler -- -- og saa har De et Fantasibillede af Dr. Fu Manchu, den gule Fare i een Person!"

--- from Fu Manchu's Mysterium, page 21
