About the Book

Seafaring stories in the Horatio Hornblower tradition, Midshipman Kirk, is filled with the rollicking adventures of Midshipman Eric Kirk and the iron screw corvette HMS Calcutta. The Calcutta patrols the Pacific coast in the 1880s and confronts Fenian plots, pirate raids, as well as the hazards of genteel social life in Victoria.
