Anyway, every holiday deserves a few good books, so I’ll throw out a few recommendations on that account*.
Fast Ships and Black Sails edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer (US, UK, Canada, Indibound). This is an anthology of original pirate fiction from authors like Naomi Novik, Michael Moorcock, Kage Baker, Elizabeth Bear, Garth Nix, Sarah Monette and more.
With the announcement of a 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie that appears to be (loosely) adapted from On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers (US, UK, Canada, Indiebound), I simply must recommend the book – which I’m very much willing to bet will be better than the movie, in-spite of Johnny Depp’s efforts.
Pirates in space? Why not? The Starship series by Mike Resnick may be just what you are looking for. Book one is Starship: Mutiny (US, UK, Canada, Indiebound) and the pirate theme really kicks with book two, Starship: Pirate (US, UK, Canada, Indiebound).
Pirate Freedom by Gene Wolfe (US, UK, Canada, Indiebound). A take on pirates by a master, Gene Wolfe.
These recommendations pretty much come from the flotsam of my brain, so feel free to share other recs in the comments.
*the honest truth is that I haven’t read any of these books (yet). But, I’m still confident enough to give them a nod.
