Pirates of Harvey 1

Avast M’hearties Pirate Day be a’coming. So batten down y’hatches. Splice the main sails. Steer with the wind, and damn y’eyes, for that callow cove Captain Duckman will keel haul the lot of y’ if y’nay pay him some mind…

International Talk Like A Pirate Day is on the horizon, and with it comes the release of Harvey Duckman Presents, The Pirate Special.

Just like the main series of Harvey Duckman Anthologies this is a collection of fifteenth exciting new writers and established independent authors of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, horror and Steampunk. To celebrate this I’m running a feature for the new few weeks on the authors and stories featured in this edition, cause Captain Duckman made me and there was mention of rum…

Mostly because of the rum… Which leads nicely into the first author in the Pirates special edition…

This is the tale of Elizabeth Abercromby a young woman of good society with a distaste for the conjugation of Latin verbs on sunny afternoons, and her kidnapping by seaborne rogues…

The talented Amy Wilson, who’s short stories ‘By Firelight’ and ‘Gosfeld’ for earlier Harvey Duckman anthologies were well received and drew many plaudits along the lines of ‘more’ and ‘we said more’ and ‘stop editing for everyone else and focus on writing that damn novel we want to read it…’

Her loss to the world of editing and beta reading for indie authors will be a gain for readers of fantasy everywhere.

In between taking archery lessons, learning German, she is working on a fantasy trilogy – the first part of which is due out next year. (Which is what she said last year… But as we have all sworn not to badger her to do proof reading any more we live in hope…)

She has also written the occasional guest posts for these pages which are entertaining reads: The joy of Thursday nights and Why your day job could be good for your creativity which I encourage you to read.

The Harvey Pirates Special comes out on International Talk Like A Pirate Day on the 19th of September and will be available in paperback and on kindle, the kindle version is available for pre-order now… So get it or I’ll make yer walk the plank…
