The COMPLETE Adventures of Zorro by Johnston McCulley !!
ZORRO - THE MASTERS EDITION is back - from a new publisher - in a new format - and this time it looks like the dream of seeing the complete Zorro canon published in matching volumes will become a reality.
As you may know, Johnston McCulley's first Zorro novel, "The Curse of Capistrano" (aka The Mark of Zorro) has been in print almost without interruption since it's first appearance in 1919. What many people don't know is that over the next forty years, McCulley wrote four more Zorro novels and 59 shorter adventures. The reason folks don't know is that many of these stories have never been reprinted, and those that have are mighty hard to come by.
So here's the good news: Classic Heroes of Hohenfurch, Germany, has been granted permission by Zorro Productions Inc to publish the entire series in both English and German editions. The books will be limited edition hardcovers (5.8 x 8.3 inches) featuring all of the original pulp art, plus new covers by Joel F. Naprstek.
The book will sell for $24.95 plus $8 postage, and be available ONLY through the Classic Heroes website. You can place an order now, and even subscribe to the whole series, by clicking right HERE.
P.S. Classic Heroes is also planning a series of Zorro comic book and comic strip reprints, but I'll save the details for another post.
