About the Author
Johnston McCulley (1883-1958) was a prolific pulp writer and screenwriter, most noteworthy as the creator of the fictional swashbuckler Zorro. Born in Illinois, McCulley began his writing career as a police reporter; during the first world war, he served as an army public affairs officer. Among his first pulp works was the novel THE CURSE OF CAPISTRANO, later renamed THE MARK OF ZORRO, which established his credentials as a important new pulp writer. While Zorro was a mainstay of McCulley's work, he also wrote detective stories and created a host of masked villains and heroes, including The Spider, Thubway Tham, The Crimson Clown, The Green Ghost, and The Thunderbolt.
