“It's hard to go wrong with pirate stories that cross time and space, and every story in the collection delivers in full. There's adventure in plenty, but beyond that, these are stories that will stick with you. Highly recommended.”
--Melissa Scott, Author of the Astreiant series and Stargate Atlantis: Pride of the Genii
“Scourge of the Seas is a fast fun read filled with buried treasure and pirates of every description. The strength of this anthology comes from both its diversity and its dedication to adventure on the high seas. Pirate stories are all about the freedom to explore and the joy of new settings and this anthology delivers on that promise.”
–Kelly McCullough, Author of the WebMage and Fallen Blade series

Review this product
Top international reviews
There are settings ranging from more or less the world we know, to imagined realms, like the living, wandering sea creatures that are Ginn Hale’s “Treasured Islands,” and the wildly imaginative seas roamed by a ship crewed by a heroic rodent crew in A.J. Fitzwater’s “Search for the Heart of the Ocean.” There are long-past times like the post-Trojan War Greece of Megan Arkenberg’s “Andromache’s War,” all the way to the far-future space age, with in between a New York of a possibly all too soon world in “After the Deluge” by Peter Golubock. There are characters of many ages, cultures, and genders with well-drawn personalities, and fierce battles along with humor, tenderness, and sacrifice.
I usually advise reading anthologies one story at a time with time in between to savor one before starting another. I seldom take my own advice when a book sweeps me along like this one. But that’s okay, because this is a book I’ll read again, and maybe even take my time.
There were a few stories like ‘The Doomed Amulet of Erum Vahl’ that I’d really like to see expanded into novella or novel length books. But for the most part being able to take some time out of my day to enter the world of these varied scoundrels was a welcome escape.
Would love to see a volume 2 at some point!
