Happy Captain Blood Day!

September 19, 2014

This is a formal apology for not having anything special to post.

But here, check out some of Sabatini’s early short stories. It’s fun to guess beforehand a) whether or not it will be terrible, b) whether or not he recycled the story into a novel later, and c) whether the hero will have a lean sardonic countenance.

  1. a) Almost certainly; b) definitely certainly; c) is there a greater degree of certainty?


    • But sometimes one of the answers is no and you get a pleasant surprise.


      • What! I don’t think I’ve ever read a Sabatini work in which C) did not occur within a page of the hero being introduced.
