Vikings, pirates, heroes, rogues, and explorers . . . all have heard the siren call of the sea, and master storyteller Harold Lamb chronicled some of their most daring exploits. This single volume contains all of Lamb’s historical seafaring stories, drawn from rare and fragile pulp magazines. Never before collected, these short stories and novels are a treasure trove of adventure. Best known for his stirring tales of Cossacks and crusaders, Lamb was no stranger to swashbuckling, and his sea stories deliver it in buckets.
 
Sail with John Paul Jones as he fights to save the crippled Russian fleet from the Turks, one eye always alert for the knives of his czarist rivals. Venture across the desert with a lone American on a desperate venture against the Barbary corsairs. Seek the Northeast Passage, beset by ice, storms, and traitors from within, at the side of explorer Ralph Thorne. Ride the whale road with the Vikings, plying their swords from Iceland to Byzantium. Introduced by best-selling author S. M. Stirling, this volume concludes with a rare behind-the-scenes look at Harold Lamb’s writing secrets, penned by the editor who made him famous.

Harold Lamb (1892–1962), who wrote biographies and screenplays as well as historical fiction, is best remembered for his tales of Cossacks and crusaders. Howard Andrew Jones is the managing editor of Black Gate magazine and the editor of Harold Lamb’s Swords from the Desert and Swords from the West, both available in Bison Books editions. S. M. Stirling is the author of many science fiction novels, including most recently The Scourge of God and The Sunrise Lands.

“Like a burial mound’s hidden hoard of treasure [Lamb’s stories] lay undisturbed, awaiting their rediscovery by Mr. Jones—and now a growing band of admirers.”—John J. Miller, Wall Street Journal
