The Captain Hawklin series has a life of its own. What started as a simple idea of writing a stand alone action pulp story, has turned into a universe of adventures, spawning characters like Hardy Miller, Oz Lyman, Zane Carrington, Desa Wintergreen, Juno Li, Maximilian Odenthal and many many others.  

I would like to thank Jeffrey Hayes from Plasma Fire Graphics for the outstanding job on the new Captain Hawklin poster (and soon to be a tee shirt) What is depicted here is only a small sample of Captain Hawklin's Adventures, with many more stories planned. Are you ready to Choose the Adventure?

CAPTAIN HAWKLIN & the SUBTERRANEAN EMPIRE

Out with the old and in with the new. The Captain Hawklin Adventure series has a worldwide audience and fans from all walks of life. I created the series in 2012 as a way to fuel my desire for pulp stories. (Little did I know there was a new movement called New Pulp springing up). I had no idea the series would get the attention it now has, and I'm humbled and excited for the chance to share his exploits with many of his Crusaders.

I feel now that when I published his third adventure "The Subterranean Empire" in 2015, I dropped the ball not only on the cover (Let's face it, it's not my favorite) and on some portions of the editing. Let's just say since 2015, the way Stormgate Press produces books has changed for the better. 

I'm happy to announce that the book has a new lease on life, with a brand new cover by Damián Avilés, who has provided covers for other Captain Hawklin books, "The Shadow Men" and "The Lost Land" as well as the cover for Pulp Reality #1, which also includes art by Damián for my Zane Carrington story inside that issue.

I'm sure you'll agree the new cover is outstanding. I want to thank Damián for his incredible work, as usual.

With a new cover, comes a Brand New edit, tightening the story up, fixing some issues as well as tweaking the story to fit in with the "Hawklin Lore" (when the book was written, the continuity was still very much in flux). 

So, if you haven't had a chance to read Captain Hawklin and the Subterranean Empire... the new edits, and cover will be available within the next week, on amazon in paperback and ebook.

Zane Carrington

Zane Holden Carrington was born May 4, 1905. His father Walter was a well-known Lawyer in New York known for many high profile cases. Zane grew up idolizing his father with ambitions of becoming a lawyer himself. 

Zane was an All-American boy. Football star in high school and voted most likely to succeed. He met Diana Burtok his freshman year of college and they quickly fell in love, yet she had another suitor. Jessep Winthrop traveled in the same circles as Zane. Went to the same college, played on the same sports teams. By all rights they should have been friends, yet they were rivals in every sense of the word. From cars, to sports and even women. Although Diana wanted noting to do with Jessep, he wouldn't halt his pursuit, even after Zane warned him to keep away from her.

On the evening of October 18, 1928 Jessup killed Diana in a fit of rage. Leaving her broken body on the steps of her parents home in West Village. Zane was furrious and tracked Jessup to his family's cabin in the Catskills where he shot him dead. Zane was arrested with the smoldering gun in his hand and Jessup's still warm body at his feet.

Zane faced the death penalty and even his father feared there was no way to prevent him from going to the electric chair. Zane's mother, Wanda pleaded with Walter to save her son, and he boldly whisked Zane off to the Orient. A wanted man, Zane took a job on the tramp steamer Algiers figuring it was better to be at sea than on land. The Winthrop family placed a bounty on his head so high, even Zane thought about turning himself in for the reward.

By 1933 Zane was owner and captain of the Algiers. An adventurer for hirer, who kept at sea avoiding bounty hunters and keeping himself inconspicuous as possible, except for the times he would get involved with Captain Steven Hawklin - and those would get him into a world of trouble. 

Zane Carrington's first chronological appearance, was in Captain Hawklin and the Secrets of Monster Island. Becoming a fan favorite, Zane also appeared in Captain Hawklin and the Underwater Menace and Captain Hawklin and the Ghost Army. His first solo story appears in the just released PULP REALITY #1 in a story titled: Testament of a Forgotten God. Look for more of his exploits in the near future.
