Ridiculous, unassuming "fun."

Couldn't find much on him, except this:

"Captain Trouble: In the thirties Sheehan began writing two series for THRILLING ADVENTURES. One was a Tarzan clone call Kwa...The other was about an American engineer, expelled from Russia, then suddenly caught up in the tribal conflicts in Afghanistan where he is proclaimed the heir to Kubla Khan, the future warlord of the world. In a series of...novelettes Sheehan traces the rise of Pelham Rutledge Shattuck from soldier of fortune, a fighting fool, to the crown of Kubla Khan. These stories are exciting, well written adventures, fun to read for there own sake."

Like I said - meaningless and ridiculous fun. (I hope.)

Hope you enjoy them.

P.S. I found 5 in the public domain, but one was incorrect, and looked like two different files joined together, that's why I only have 4 here.

Excellent Dr. Drib! Looking forward to reading these. Are you working on any other Kwa stories? I noticed you had posted one, but wasn't sure if you were going to post any others...

I have it and I'll work on it today. If there are any other titles involving Kwa that are in the public domain, I don't know about them.

I've read about 35 pages of the first one I uploaded. It's horrible, but there's something about slowing down at a wreck that excites my imagination....if you know what I mean.

Yeah, I read it. It is pretty horrible, but to be honest, I sorta enjoyed it. Something about going in and knowing that it is so cheesy.

I can actually picture the author just typing away, not really caring to ever edit what he was writing! And now I get to brag to my friends that I actually read a book called, ok, maybe not something to be proud of.
