Welcome to ScaryFangirl.Com, a place for those who are (or would like to be) obsessed with C.S. Forester's nautical hero, Horatio Hornblower.  This site is dedicated to the multiple dimensions of the Hornblower fandom, from the books to the movies, encompassing both the studious and the remarkably silly.  It is my hope that Hornblower junkies the world over will find something here to brighten their day whether their tastes run to the historical or the hysterical.  Enjoy!
