The year is 1929. In the aftermath of the Great War, the world rebuilds, and the mighty zeppelin is its instrument. Carrying trade between every nation, airship merchantmen attract an old menace for a new age: the sky pirate. One man stands out above the rest. Ace pilot, intrepid explorer, and gentleman buccaneer Nathaniel Cannon and his gang, the Long Nines, prowl the skies in hot pursuit of wealth and adventure.
Cannon receives word from a sometime friend in Paris about a job in the Dutch East Indies. The contact tells a tale of a mysterious lost city, bursting with treasure, not seen by human eyes for a thousand years. Will his tip pay off? Or will it lead the Long Nines straight to a fight for their lives, lost in the unfriendly depths of the Indonesian jungle?

About the Author
Hello! I'm an author and software engineer from beautiful southwestern Pennsylvania. I read a lot of speculative fiction, as well as history (military and naval being my main interests), and alternate history (which is always better with zeppelins). You'll find that I write the first and last most often. My other interests include a wide variety of PC games and a very small variety of TV shows, as well as historical firearms (which I collect) and competitive shooting (in which I occasionally take part).
