Rayne Hallabout this book: This collection contains yarns by Douglas Kolacki, Jonathan Broughton, Kris Austin Radcliffe, Rayne Hall, KJ Kiegan, John Blackport, Liv Rancourt and Margo Lerwill.
Pirate stories are exciting. They give us a taste of adventure and daring, of freedom and romance.
Great 19th century writers - Lord Byron, Walter Scott, Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, Emilio Salgari - created the image of the pirate as we know him, and films have further fed our fantasies. We picture pirates in tight trousers and gallantly swashbuckling like Captain Blood, with parrots on their shoulders and cunningly scheming like peg-legged Long John Silver, or with beads in their hair and slyly plotting like weird Jack Sparrow.
The historical reality was unglamorous and brutal. The lives of the criminals who robbed ships were rough, violent and short. But in fiction, we enter a world of excitement, set sail for a great adventure, enjoy freedoms outside the confines of society and law, fight on the side of righteous rebels or defeat the villains and find buried treasure.
This book contains ten pirate yarns, some spiced with sprinkles of realism, others peppered with fantasy, all seasoned with the salt of adventure.
• "Swashbuckling mayhem...adventurous literary escape." — Art G.
