Our authors

Emilio Salgari (1862–1911) wrote more than 200 adventure stories and novels, many of which are considered classics. His tales are all set in exotic locations, with heroes from a wide variety of cultures. Though he claimed to be well traveled, he never left Italy.


Jules Verne's (1828-1905) oeuvre includes 65 novels, some 20 short stories and essays, 30 plays, some geographical works, and several opera librettos. His novels have inspired 120 feature films. Many of his ideas have been hailed as prophetic; his novels explored space, air and underwater travel long before they became commonplace.


Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894) was a Scottish novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer and ranks among the 26 most translated authors in the world.


Rafael Sabatini (1875–1950) was an Italian/English writer of romance and adventure novels. Many of his works were worldwide bestsellers in the early 20th century


Jeffery Farnol (1878–1952), was an English author, known for his many romantic novels, and swashbucklers. He is considered one of the founders of the Regency romantic genre and his novels often appeared on bestsellers lists in the early 20th century.


Robert Ervin Howard (1906–1936) was an American pulp fiction writer. He is regarded as the Father of the Sword and Sorcery subgenre.
