Hector France is a French “orientalist” author, his best known work is “Musk, Hashish and Blood”. France was a colonial soldier who served long in Algeria. Upon his return to France, he would regale his friends, many of them notable artists and authors, with his soldier’s tales of life amongst the Muslims of North Africa. Eventually, they convinced him to try his hand at writing them down, and he turned out to have an author’s talent.
