The Complete Exploits of the Notorious Sea Fox

One of the most infamous series from the pulp magazines is collected for the first time. Guineaman ship captain Cap’n Barnabas N. Pepper—the “Sea Fox”—is the master of the brigantine Wild Pigeon, which plies the waters of the Atlantic between the west coast of Africa and the east coast of the United States, in the years before the American Civil War. Over the course of seven stories, author James K. Waterman’s background as a sailor gave these stories an undeniable air of authenticity, and the plot twists he brings to them are clever and unexpected. It’s easy to imagine that readers of the 1920s (some of whom probably remembered the Civil War) would accept and enjoy them. The Sea Fox series provides a vivid window into a long-gone era and does so by presenting stirring tales of courage and action, and as a series unlike anything else in the pulps. Includes the original illustrations and an all-new introduction which puts this series in its historical perspective.
