Pulp Classic:: The Opium Ship


initially released as a four-part serial within the mythical pulp journal 'The Thrill Book,' here's the tale of Sir Gerald Desmond, past due officer in His Majesty's Royal Flying Corps. Broke and under the influence of alcohol in Manila, he befriends a consumptive Irish fiddler, Michael O'Sullivan, and the 2 get involved in a loose struggle with the local constabulary. From this brawl they're rescued via an unknown benefactor -- but if they arrive to their senses, they locate themselves shanghaied aboard the schooner 'San Gregorio', sure for Mindoro Island. Typhoons, smugglers, attractive ladies, opium, and mutiny are only the start in their adventures!
