Description

The Curse of Capistrano (The Mark of Zorro)

by Johnston McCulley

The Curse of Capistrano is a 1919 novella by Johnston McCulley and the first work to feature the fictional character Zorro (zorro is the Spanish word for fox). After the enormous success of the 1920 film adaptation, The Mark of Zorro, the story was republished under that name. Prior to being published in novella form, The Curse of Capistrano appeared as five serialized installments in the pulp magazine All-Story Weekly.

About McCulley:

Johnston McCulley (February 2 , 1883 Ottawa, Illinois - November23, 1958) was the author of hundreds of stories, fifty novels, numerous screenplays for film and television, and the creator ofthe character Zorro. Many of his novels and stories were writtenunder the pseudonyms Harrison Strong, Raley Brien, George Drayne, Monica Morton, Rowena Raley, Frederic Phelps, Walter Pierson, andJohn Mack Stone, among others. McCulley started as a policereporter for The Police Gazette and served as an Army publicaffairs officer during World War I. An amateur history buff, hewent on to a career in pulp fiction and screenplays, often using aSouthern California backdrop for his stories. Aside from Zorro, McCulley created many other pulp characters, including Black Star, The Mongoose, and Thubway Tham. Many of McCulley's characters—theGreen Ghost, the Thunderbolt, and the Crimson Clown—wereinspirations for the masked heroes that have appeared in popularculture from McCulley's time to the present day. Some of McCulley'stales are available from Wildside Press. Pulp Adventures Inc. haspublished two oversized trade paperback volumes reprinting many ofthe original Zorro stories. McCulley is entombed in Glendale'sForest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery.
