Also, in collaboration with the Audie award-winning Nancy Peterson, I’m happy to announce that our dual narration of Agatha Christie’s The Man in the Brown Suit will soon be available to purchase through our website. Look for a healthy sample coming your way in the podcast feed!

Henry James O’Brian Bedford-Jones was a Canadian-American writer of adventure fantasy, science fiction, crime and Westerns in the golden age of pulp magazines. Enormously prolific, he wrote nearly 200 novels, 400 novelettes, and 800 short stories. He used so many pseudonyms that a perfect accounting of all of his works is impossible.

While many writers cranked out reams of adventure stories for the pulps in this period, this story is a standout for several reasons. It’s firstly a story of pirates who have dark pasts, and are trying to go straight. There’s a plucky woman on board, who is anything but a damsel in distress. And the focus on character progression over sensational plot devices is a breath of fresh air. But rest assured, there’s plenty of action. This is a pirate story, after all!

And now, Pirates’ Gold, part 1 of 4, by H. Bedford-Jones.
