First published in "Five Novels Monthly," in June 1934, "Sea Fangs" churns and swirls with adventure, revenge, and romance to give the reader a taste of a bold and adventurous salt water saga. The story begins with a rush of wind and rain in a horrific hurricane on rough seas off the coast of Venezuela. To get his revenge, sailor Bob Sherman has secretly hired onto the "Bonita," a ship owned by Herbert Marmion, a scoundrel and thief who stole Sherman's land and his Venezuelan drilling business a few years earlier. What follows is a series of events that Sherman did not bargain for: he is beaten by waves relentlessly; attacked by modern day pirates; marooned on the Island of Death; and held hostage in a dungeon jail. To weather these storms, Sherman is aided by a raven-haired beauty (Hubbard's words). This is not one of my favorite pulps by Hubbard...a bit too contrived to my way of thinking, but an adventurous tale anyway.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
