Damon! I’m more than a bit partial to pirate stories. TREASURE ISLAND was the first that really impressed me and Sabatini’s CAPTAIN BLOOD was second. The movie with Errol Flynn was the definitive romantic pirate movie. Burt Lancaster as THE CRIMSON PIRATE was good too, and I liked THE BUCCANEER with Yul Brynner as Lafitte. Lately I’ve been checking out the Solomon Kane stories for the pirates he knew, and my WORDSWORTH DICTIONARY OF PIRATES

Lately I’ve been checking out the Solomon Kane stories for the pirates he knew, and my WORDSWORTH DICTIONARY OF PIRATES for sea-robbers he might have known. One day there’ll be a post on the subject. Meanwhile — I have to get a copy of PIRATE ADVENTURES!
