The decision satisfied even his legendary appetite for excitement. Placing us smack in the middle of San Francisco at the height of its most reckless days, Tales of the Fish Patrol is vintage Jack London, tales of adventure from a world-class raconteur.

This is one of the worst examples of book piracy I have seen. The illustrations are fine, but the pagination and odd use of paragraph breaks suggests that this edition was simply photocopied from another edition. That statement is bolstered by the inside cover title page, which lists publication date as 1906, obviously a bad photocopy job.

The spine is printed on the cover. I dont know if its a bootleg copy or what

As usual with Jack London stories, there are plenty of villans and a small group of heroes, who are adept at using smarts to overcome their problems.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tale.
The design of this particular publishing is very poor and the text is riddled with errors, but the stories are wonderful and as always, Jack London can tell a ripping good tale.
