In total Bramah published 21 books and numerous short stories and features.

His humorous works were ranked with Jerome K Jerome, and W. W. Jacobs- his detective stories with Conan Doyle- his politico-science fiction with H. G. Wells and his supernatural stories with Algernon Blackwood. George Orwell acknowledged that Bramahs book What Might Have Been (1907) influenced his seminal Nineteen Eighty-Four (1948). Bramah, the creator of the immortal Kai Lung and Max Carrados, was a recluse who refused to allow his public even the slightest glimpse of his private life - secrecy perhaps only matched by E. W. Hornung, the creator of Raffles, and today, J.D.

Salinger. We now know that Bramah, whose real name was Smith, was a man of erudition and prescience with a unique style of writing that has never been copied. Among his most famous works are: Four Max Carrados Detective Stories (1914), Kai Lungs Golden Hours (1922), The Mirror of Kong Ho (1905) and The Wallet of Kai Lung (1900).
