JOHNSTON McCULLEY
 
 

CAPTAIN FLY-BY-NIGHT
Famed as the creator and author of Zorro, McCulley wrote a novel in a similar vein which was published in 1916 and subsequently made into a silent film.

Captain Fly-By-Night was stirring up trouble in California between the red men and the white. Rojelio Rocha, betrothed by his parents to Anita Fernandez, heads to San Diego for his marriage. All three end up in a rollicking historical drama of Southern California life in the early 1800's.

DON RENEGADE

FIRST EDITION!

Marcos Zappa is set upon by four rogues and carried away to a shack in the hills. There he is left alone with an elegant caballero who introduces himself as Don Pedro Garcia.

Quickly Don Pedro makes it clear that he knows the truth about Marcos Zappa. He knows that this man is really Don Felipe Hernandez, once a member of the Viceroy's staff; that he now wears a band around his forehead to conceal the brand of the renegade. El renegado Don Felipe Hernandez was proclaimed, because his love for a Mexican girl led him to help foment a native uprising. He was banished from his own caste, and eventually he joined a crew of pirates.

Then Don Pedro explains how he plans to use Marcos Zappa. The sinister don seeks revenge against a certain Senorita Manuela de Vasquez, who has spurned him, and against his successful rival, Miguel de Gandara. So it is Don Pedro's scheme to present Marcos Zappa to the world as a gentleman, a role which the latter can easily carry off; then Zappa is to win the heart of Senorita Manuela and to slay her suitor, Don Miguel. At last Don Pedro will reveal the bogus caballero to be a renegade.
