You can thank Bold Venture Press for this new entry into the Zorro fold... whether you were captivated by the Disney ZORRO series on television or the Johnston McCulley printed prose, the masked avenger with athletic prowess and sharp blade is making a return with a new paperback containing 16 all-new stories. While many would consider this "fan fiction," some of these authors are experienced in their field and provide fantastic adventures. 

In the early 1800s, California was still under Spanish rule. Some military commanders plundered and won riches at the expense of the peace-loving settlers. Against these agents of injustice the settlers were powerless, until one man arose whose courage stirred the hearts of Californians. He alone gave them the spirit to resist tyranny. That man was Zorro!

These new exciting stories include such adventures wherein the “Curse of Capistrano” joins forces with Sgt. Garcia to halt an insurrectionist, teams with The Scarlet Pimpernel’s descendant, rescues damsels, gypsies and even a hog, and clashes with the Devil himself. Danger, swashbuckling adventure and romance await in Reina de Los Angeles, and Zorro always answers the challenge with a smile and his flashing sword! 

The authors include John L. French, Richard A. Lupoff, Will Murray, Francisco Silva (who contributed two stories), Joseph A. Lovece, William Patrick Maynard, Linda Bindner, Susan Kite, Diana Barkley, Bret Bouriseau, Daryl McCullough, Mari K. Ross, Robert Scott Cranford, Eugene Craig, and Pamela Elbert Poland. Introduction by Michael Uslan, executive producer of the Batman film franchise. There is also a brief essay about Johnston McCulley, creator of Zorro.
