On the far side of history, where only wild writers and film producers dare to venture - out yonder, in the old days and on the seas of high adventure, there were pyrates. They were a desperate crew.

Hollywood meets the bounding main in this Technicolor pantomime by the creator of Flashman, a gloriously silly swashbuckling saga full of buccaneers, tall ships, desert islands, and heaving seas and bosoms. It’s all there, right down to a Dead Man’s Chest, cleavages that are everything they should be, and characters in sea–boots who say nothing but ‘Arr!’ and ‘Me hearty!’ in a plot that is wonderfully absurd. Originally published in 1983.From the Back Cover:
The Pyrates pays tongue-in-cheek homage to the swashbuckling books and movies that have always stirred our imagination. In these rollicking pages you’ll find tall ships and desert islands, impossibly gallant adventurers and glamorous heroines, devilishly sinister cads and ghastly dungeons, improbably acrobatic duels and hair’s-breadth escapes, and more plot twists than you can shake a rapier at.
