Scourge of the Seas

Untitled design (1).png

New from Catherine Lundoff, editor of the Spectrum Award-winning anthology Haunted Hearths and Sapphic Shades and co-editor of the Rainbow Award-winning anthology Hellebore and Rue, Scourge of the Seas of Time (and Space) is a whole new take on fantastical pirates. Think pirates are all about the rum and the pieces of eight? Let these fifteen tales show you something different. From ancient Greece to the South China Sea to outer space and beyond, these are pirate tales about outlaws, scoundrels and heroes of every kind. Sail with them as they seek treasure, redemption, love, revenge and more. Raise the Jolly Roger and sharpen your cutlass (or recharge your raygun) and climb aboard for some unforgettable voyages.
