H.D. Couzens spent many years in Hawaii and came to know the South Seas first hand. In the early years of the all-fiction magazines, he found a ready market for stories in such periodicals as Metropolitan Magazine, Cavalier, Railroad Man's Magazine, Adventure, Blue Book and New Magazine.

Couzens became a reader favorite author for Adventure, before his life was cut short by tuberculosis in 1914.

With an introduction by Doug Ellis.

Praise for King Corrigan's Treasure

"With the Englehart stories, Couzens came up with the closest to a Conan as he would in his too-short career as a fiction writer: a sturdy man’s man protagonist who survives a variety of hair-raising scrapes, including a shipboard encounter with an orangutan."—Blogcritics

"Though these tales are now a full century old, Couzen's prose is sharp enough to have been penned yesterday. So thank you, Mr. Black Dog, for another great book!"—Davy Crockett's Almanack
