Zorro Rides Again — From South Florida

Zorro Book Cover

...As Local Publisher Lands the Rights!

ZORRO's author Johnston McCulley apparently never planned for more than one Zorro tale back when the hugely popular serial first appeared in the pulp fiction magazine All-Story Weekly in 1919. But the black-masked vigilante has galloped from magazines to radio to TV and movies — and now rides again here in South Florida, thanks to Bold Ventire Press!

McCulley certainly created many other interesting characters like The Black Star — a criminal mastermind — and The Spider.
But Zorro stands out as his most famous creation ever, thanks to the 1950s Disney TV ZORRO success. That classic show is said to be faithful to McCulley's vision.

And now, Zorro fans are celebrating around the world since Bold Venture Press has reprinted six volumes of ZORRO: The Complete Pulp Adventures. Add to that: a new ZORRO novel by NY Times best selling author Peter David. His ZORRO AND THE LITTLE DEVIL received a rave review from Publishers Weekly.

The prolific South Florida publisher is also nowBold Venture Press logo reprinting the Tales of Zorro's Old California. The first is The Devil’s Doubloons, an Argosy serial from 1940.
COMING Soon will be the next TALES OF ZORRO'S OLD CALIFORNIA: BLACK GRANDEE serialized in Argosy in 1938-39.
