Welcome to Nightriders, a fanlisting for the Doctor Syn series of novels written by Russell Thorndike.
In 18th-century England, the notorious pirate Captain Clegg returns to his native village of Dymchurch, to live a peaceful life as the humble vicar Doctor Syn. Yet a new chapter in his adventures is soon begun, for when his people are in need, Syn assumes the guise of the Scarecrow—the fearsome leader of the Romney Marsh smugglers.
Although little-known today, the seven novels in the Doctor Syn series are classic tales of swashbuckling excitement, filled with drama and humor. If you are a fan of these books, or the films based upon them, you are welcomed to join us in spreading the word about this underrated adventure saga.
