ABOUT THIS SHORT STORY
Cannonballs and laser beams fly as blazing battle rages between a fleet of pirate ships and a squadron of alien fighters. Demonic aliens board the ships and let loose high-tech ray beams on hardened pirates armed with pistols and cutlasses. In the heart of the flame and fury roars fearless Blackbeard himself, commanding his men in a last-ditch struggle to save all humankind from bloodthirsty conquerors from another world. Perhaps Blackbeard’s own dark connection to the aliens will give him an edge against them, if his own closest ally, Stede Bonnet, does not mount a mutiny against him first. Can Blackbeard and the greatest pirates of his day use their seafaring savagery to win the war for the future of humanity? It all comes down to pirates versus aliens as the greatest battle ever to rock the seven seas rushes toward an explosive finale. Don’t miss this exciting tale by award-winning storyteller Robert Jeschonek, a master of hard-hitting science fiction that really packs a punch.
