Lawrence Ellsworth is the pen name of Lawrence Schick. He began his career as a writer at TSR Hobbies, where he was instrumental in the early popularity of the role-playing game "Dungeons & Dragons."

Reviews

"Newly translated, a sequel to The Three Musketeers is as fresh as ever. In Lawrence Ellsworth's excellent, compulsively readable translation, The Red Sphinx is just the book to see you through the January doldrums. And maybe those of February, too." -- Michael Dirda - The Washington Post
"The Red Sphinx sparkles and shines in a new translation. Races along with pointed humor and broad quips. Fun permeates this big book. The rest of 2017's fiction will have to look sharp: An old master has just set the bar very, very high." -- Christian Science Monitor
"A royal treat for fans of historical fiction. I am confident that librarians and English literature teachers around the world are leaping for joy at the publication of The Red Sphinx, and I join them in this excitement." -- Bookreporter
"Fans of The Three Musketeers can rejoice in the 800-page English translation of this largely forgotten sequel." -- Newsday
"Dumas's trademark gifts at crafting engaging historical romances are amply in evidence in this lengthy yet fast-paced volume. Ellsworth's translation captures a complete narrative. A very entertaining epic." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"There is swash and buckle aplenty, and even plumage if that's what does it for you. And it is great fun." -- The Spectator
"The Red Sphinx is wonderful. There's plot and counter-plot, duels, passion, murder, romance, disguises, poets and assassins. Readable and compelling." -- Historical Novels Review
"The Red Sphinx is a vivid and beautifully-crafted story dense with colorful characters and an irresistible charm." -- Tony Cliff, author of the 'New York Times' bestselling "Delilah Dirk" graphic novels
