Quotes about The Wizard

  • ... a thinly disguised commercial for Nintendo video games and the Universal studio tour. [...] "The Wizard" is finally just a cynical exploitation film with a lot of commercial plugs in it, and it is so insanely overwritten and ineptly directed that it will disappoint just about everybody and serve them right for going in the first place.
  • "The Wizard" is nothing but a commercial for Nintendo games, except when it's plugging Universal Studios' own theme parks. Hollywood hucksters, zap them, have borrowed from Japanese game-pushers in this shameless attempt to sucker America's children.
    • Rita Kempley, Washington Post, 1989-12-15 [2]

The Wizard
by H. Rider Haggard
The Wizard, was first published in 1896. This text was prepared from a 3-volume set published in 1900 titled: "Black Heart and White Heart, and Other Stories." These three volumes were dedicated to Nada Burnham (1894 - 1896), the daughter of Frederick Russell Burnham.

Dedication

To the Memory of the Child
Nada Burnham,
who "bound all to her" and, while her father cut his way through the hordes of the Ingobo Regiment, perished of the hardships of war at Buluwayo on 19th May, 1896, I dedicate these tales—and more particularly the last, that of a Faith which triumphed over savagery and death.

H. Rider Haggard.

Ditchingham.

Author's Note

Of the three stories that comprise this volume, one, "The Wizard," a tale of victorious faith, first appeared some years ago as a Christmas Annual. Another, "Elissa," is an attempt, difficult enough owing to the scantiness of the material left to us by time, to recreate the life of the ancient Poenician Zimbabwe, whose ruins still stand in Rhodesia, and, with the addition of the necessary love story, to suggest circumstances such as might have brought about or accompanied its fall at the hands of the surrounding savage tribes. The third, "Black Heart and White Heart," is a story of the courtship, trials and final union of a pair of Zulu lovers in the time of King Cetywayo.
