Behind the scenes

  • At the deepwoods.org index the title for this story is "Kingdom of the Wind", which is lifted from the plot. The expression "Kingdom of the Wind" is not mentioned in the story. The plot is about a mad scientist who can create and control strong winds, thus posing a threat to navy ships in the area. The expression "King of the Wind" is mentioned often, and would be a better title for the story.
  • Note that Barton and S.S. Argos from the long running "Flame Pearls" voyage now have changed names to Blain and Argus.
