Everybody loves pirates, right? I mean the exotic, romanticised ones with the cutlasses and the eye patches, not the real ones who rob ships and kill people. Because that’s the thing, we’ve got a warped view of pirates. They’re somehow become romantic figures of action, excitement and freedom, when real pirates have always been organised crime on the high seas.

LocoThology 2013 – now with added pirates

Not that I’m complaining. I love the image of those wild sea rovers with their fancy hats and their cutlasses. That’s why I contributed a story to LocoThology 2013, an anthology of speculative fiction about pirates. LocoThology is Loconeal publishing’s annual themed anthology of speculative fiction, and this year it’s about all that is most swashbuckling on the high seas, or possibly in outer space in one or two cases.

My story, Mutiny, is a flash fiction piece about what happens when a ship rebels against its crew. I had fun writing it, and I hope people will have fun reading it. If you’re interested, you can get hold of the anthology through the Loconeal website.

Now to splice the mainbrace and head for less exciting seas – I’ve work to do me hearties. Yaaaarrrr!
