Hutcheson, John C: The Penang Pirate. V1. 22 July 2009

John Conroy Hutcheson (1840- 1897) was a British author of novels and short stories about life aboard ships at sea.
Hutcheson was born in Jersey, Channel Islands, in 1840, and died in Portsea Island, in late 1896 or early 1897.

Excerpt
This is a fairly short book, consisting of two short stories.
The first of these, “The Penang Pirate”, describes how the Captain of the “Hankow Lin”, suspecting that there might be a piratical attack on his vessel on her return voyage from Canton to Australia, lays plans to spoil the pirates’ fun. As a result of this the attacking pirate vessel is soundly beaten, but there were some interesting events and confrontations before they actually met the pirate schooner.
The second story is “The Lost Pinnace”. HMS London is cruising the East Coast of Africa in search of any slaver dhows. One of these is met with and deleted, so the London, a midshipman with knowledge of the local language having overheard that there is a second slaver not far away, sets off in search of a further conquest.

I am now confused, Georges. When I look at an author to work on, I go to ebooks and using the search at the right side do a search on the author's name in Last Name first and vice versa. If the find shows an author has been used, I tend to avoid him or, depending on the date posted, ask the previous book maker (?) if he or she is still working on the series. If no match is found, then I assume no one is working on this series and go ahead with building the books.

I don't know why sometimes this causes a repeat of books already posted. How else should I check to avoid this? I guess I should check each book. Again, I have no intention of stepping on anyone, especially you, my friend.

Oh I know. No harm done! Try doing a search here and search in titles only. Voilà!
