Doc Savage and his men were relaxed, unconcerned, now
that the trouble was over. They u ere accustomed to this sort of thing.
They had been through it before.
They would go through it again, too -- as much and
more. For within the month, a fantastic, perilous series of adventures would
befall them, although they had no way of foreseeing that.
Johnny-William Harper Littlejohn, the archaeologist
and geologist who was now in England-was destined first to see King John's
ghost, and from that grisly meeting would grow the whirl of peril and dangerous
mystery that surrounded The Sea Magician.

ruler of England, who roarned the marshlands of The Wash, that fantastic
swamp on the eastern coast of England. And even more fearsome and mystifying

When Johnny went to investigate King John's shade,
he found much that he had not expected, and was placed in terrible jeopardy.
And in aiding Johnny, Doc Savage was to tackle a mystery that seemed to
have absolutely no explanation at all.
The Sea Magician was destined to be about as baffling
a problem as Doc Savage and his men had ever encountered.

not being clairvoyants, were satisfied that the menace
of the silver men was ended, and were unconcerned over the future. They
cruised with the launch until there was no possible chance of survivors
