The Black Falcon

By Arthur J. Burks

“TheSelected by Black Jack Pershing himself for an Impossible Assignment. Lt. Evan Post was volunteered to drive Germany’s top five aces out of the sky. Orders were sent ahead to see that he was given every cooperation by any Allied post of command. With the biggest, blackest, ugliest bird painted on his red plane’s fuselage, Post worked the list. And with every German Ace he downed, Evan Post became The Black Falcon!

Arthur J. Burks never met a story he couldn’t write. Although he was famously able to craft a story about anything suggested to him, Burks was probably best known for his weird menace and detective stories. For Sky Fighters magazine, he penned six linked stories featuring Lt. Evan Post from 1933-1936. The Black Falcon’s complete arc is collected here for the first time—from scrappy pilot to mythic character whispered about by young recruits!
