We return to the world of the Long Nines for a story set in the traditional home of that infamous gang of pirates: the East Indies. It occurs prior to the Cannon stories published to date, in late 1927. I’ve wanted to write it for some time now, since it focuses on the Long Nines at a time when piracy was a bigger element in their oeuvre, before their transition to more generalized adventurers and scoundrels in the later 1920s and 1930s.
I have a few thrilling new locations in mind, which I’m excited to share as the story progresses. Enjoy!
