The first of Talbot Mundy’s great recurring heroes, Dick Anthony is a headstrong Scotsman who abandons home, hearth and heritage to seek his fortune in a wider world. Sailing east in a sturdy ketch, armed with the ancestral sword of his clan, he braves storms both natural and manmade, landing in cryptic Egypt before moving on to meet his true destiny—no longer Richard Anthony of Arran, but King Dick of Iran!

Before Athelstan King, before Jimgrim, even before Lawrence of Arabia, Talbot Mundy’s fearless fighter swept across the Middle East like no warrior since the era of Alexander the Great!

Collecting the entire series, as it originally appeared in the pages of Adventure magazine, complete and uncut. As a bonus, this edition also includes all of the edited syndicated newspaper versions of the stories. Also includes an all-new introduction by Mundy authority Will Murray.

Crockett's Devil

Crockett’s Devil

Written by Evan Lewis, cover by Robert Stanley

Davy Crockett has a Devil in his heart: The Time: 1813. The Place: The Mississippi Territory. The Problem: Rebelling Creek warriors, under war chief Red Eagle, spread terror across the frontier, slaughtering settlers and peaceful Creeks alike. The Solution: Kill Red Eagle!

But Davy Crockett disagrees. He sees Red Eagle as the young nation’s best hope for peace, and risks his hair—and his life—to stop the fighting.

Standing in his way are:

General Andrew Jackson, seeking glory to restart his political career.
A Militia Commander leading some of the most brutal killers in the South.
A Revolutionary War hero offering a bounty for Creek scalps.
Davy’s best friend, who demands vengeance for his family.
An Indian Princess who lost her mother to Red Eagle’s war.
Red Eagle himself and his thousand bloodthirsty warriors.
And most of all, Crockett’s Devil, an inner demon threatening all his hopes.

Can Davy best them all and bring peace to the wild frontier?
