Overview


Bob Sherman has a strength of character and purpose that would make Spencer Tracy proud.  But signing on to the crew of the yacht Bonito, he’ll need every ounce of his strength and courage to overcome the forces arrayed against him—in Sea Fangs.

He’ll take on the forces of nature—a hurricane smashing into the boat off the Venezuelan coast.  He’ll stand up to the forces of ignorance—Bonito’s incompetent captain. He’ll defy the forces of corruption—the boat’s owner, who stripped him of his land years ago. And he’ll fight the forces of evil—a ruthless band of pirates who take all aboard, including the owner’s daughter, to the uncharted Island of Death.

His fate intertwined with a woman whose father stole everything he valued, Sherman is about to discover that there’s one force as powerful, unpredictable and dangerous as the sea itself . . . the force of a beautiful woman’s love.

Hubbard had vast experience at sea. By the time he’d written this story, he had traveled twice to China on Naval vessels, had signed on a twin-masted schooner plying the Chinese coast, and had organized a five-thousand mile expedition aboard a four-masted schooner. He had first-hand experience of the violence of the sea—and of the men who ply it—as he depicts in Sea Fangs.

“The cast brings alive romance, bravado, menace, and the thrill of escape.”

    First published in "Five Novels Monthly," in June 1934

    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.
