Captain Adam Barnard’s Planet Harvey

I’ve got a cou­ple of cheap pulp nov­els that have to do with my name. The first is Don­ald Barr Chidsey’s Cap­tain Adam:

The his­to­ry of an auda­cious young sea­man from the Amer­i­can colonies who duelled and prayed and sinned his way to mag­nif­i­cent adven­ture on the law­less seas of the ear­ly 18th cen­tu­ry!

The cov­er [not this one, but like it] has a tall skin­ny dude with a sword on it and a hot red­head who is chained to the deck of a sail­ing ship. I picked that one up from the [now closed] Antiques and Curios store that was just down the street from me.

Anoth­er one, picked up from Mac’s Backs, is John Boyd’s Barnard’s Plan­et, which hap­pens to be a real­ly real­ly real­ly shit­ty sci­ence fic­tion nov­el. The only good parts are quotes from bet­ter writ­ers. I’ll prob­a­bly try read­ing Cap­tain Adam after I fin­ish this one.

One of these days I’ll find a cheesy book with Har­vey in the title worth com­plet­ing the col­lec­tion.
