The Queen of the Caribbean the second title in the Black Corsair series is now available in print and Kindle formats.

We're working on the next Sandokan title Quest for a Throne and hope to release it by end of May or early June. We appreciate your patience! We're also planning to publish a few of Mr. Salgari's more popular titles and some new translations of works by Jules Verne. Check back with us!

In 2014, ROH Press launched Tutto Salgari the definitive ebook series that makes all of Mr Salgari's work - in Italian - available for the Kindle. For many of these titles, it is the first time they appear in digital format. Each volume contains 5 or more classic adventures.

For Spanish readers our Todas las aventuras series collects all of the adventures of Sandokan and el Corsario Negro in three volumes.

All of our print and Kindle titles are complete and unabridged versions of Mr Salgari's work.

  In 2013, an excerpt from our translation of The Mystery of the Black Jungle was included in Umberto Eco's The Book of Legendary Lands, an illustrated compilation of "the fabled places in literature and folklore that have awed, troubled, and eluded us through the ages." Salgari's works have also been referred to extensively in Eco's The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana.  

In 2009, four of Mr. Salgari's works including The Black Corsair and Sandokan: The Tigers of Mompracem were featured in Julia Eccleshare's 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up.


  In 2007, Sandokan was listed as one of the 20th century’s greatest characters in Lucy Daniel’s Defining Moments in Books: The Greatest Books, Writers, Characters, Passages and Events that Shook the Literary World.
