    Arthur Calder-Marshall says this tale "was a variation of the theme of 'the Yellow Peril,' a common nightmare of the first decade of this century." (Bodley Head Jack London, I, 15.) London received $400 for this story on April 13, 1910.

  2. "Winged Blackmail"The Lever (Chicago), v. 1 (September 1910), 54-57. [NB]

    Franklin Walker cites this as one of fifteen plots London bought from Sinclair Lewis, presumably on March 11, 1910, along with "When the World Was Young" (entry 132) and what later became the unfinished novel The Assassination Bureau, Ltd., entry 41. Walker says it shows Lewis' preoccupation with flying, a subject which held little interest for London. Lewis' first book, which appeared the year after this story was published, was a juvenile titled Hike and the Aeroplane. See Franklin Walker, "Jack London's Use of Sinclair Lewis Plots, Together With a Printing of Three of the Plots," Huntington Library Quarterly, 17 (November 1953), pp. 59-74.
