The Last Mutineer

The Last Mutineer

Another blast from the past. This article, which appeared in the prestigious and sophisticated men’s magazine Penthouse a few years back is basically a postscript to THE EAGLE MUTINY (Naval Institute Press 2001), the non-fiction book I wrote with Roberto Loiederman about an incredible true-life mutiny on an American ship during the Vietnam War, and its tragic aftermath. “A tale worthy of Conrad,” wrote TD Allman about the book.

It was recently optioned for a feature film by Academy Award-winning screenwriter/producer William Monahan (The Departed).

The SS Columbia Eagle may set sail again…

The Continuing Search for the Son of Captain Blood

The Continuing Search for the Son of Captain Blood

Everybody’s looking for Sean Flynn these days. The son of Errol Flynn left a middling acting career to become a war photographer in Vietnam and was captured and likely killed by the Khmer Rouge in 1970. Here’s a story I wrote about Zalin Grant’s search for his remains in 2002. This story was published in the now defunct British magazine JACK and the editor lobbed off more than 3/4 of the article to shoehorn it into the pub. I will post the full-length never-before-seen version soon. It’s a doozy! Stay tuned.
