ARRRRRRR: PIRATE ANTHOLOGY FOR NIGHT SHADE BOOKS

UPDATE: Sir Tessa claims white ninjas are more amazing than pirates, offering up this evidence.


Jason Williams looks like a pirate without any props.

"Arrrr. Arrgggh. Trim that mainsail with a...um...a...a widget or? Just take care of it. And get that damn parrot off my shoulder."


Jeremy Lassen is the bravest man I know. Mad props.

It's official: Ann and I are co-editing an as-yet-untitled anthology of original pirate fiction for Jason Williams and Jeremy Lassen at Night Shade Books. Jason and Jeremy came up with the idea, and we are happy to oblige.


"Hey, Ann--it's 8 in the morning. You just woke up. Mind wearing an eyepatch and grimacing for me?"

The anthology will come out in late 2007. There will be a two-month open reading period later in the year. (Please do not query--we will make sure everyone knows about the reading period.)


Nothing better than slappin' on an eyepatch the morning after your 38th birthday...

We look forward to producing a spirited, exciting, and just plain fun anthology. This isn't going to be Leviathan 5 or Album Zutique. With this anthology, we're going to slake our thirst for finely crafted rolicking adventure fiction.


Evil Monkey is our First Mate...

Many thanks to Jason and Jeremy for this opportunity to cut loose and run with this baby. We'll have the title and more information after we get back from Europe.


Beer is our Bosun...

In the meantime, we're off to see Pirates of the Carribean and drink some rum and have some pirate pie (thanks Kris and Dave Alsbrooks)


Pirate Pie is our Cook and our Meal...

P.S. After having tormented Tessa of Silence Without with pirate references in the comments fields of her blog for a few months, I think it's only fair to give her a shout-out, and to note that from this photo posted recently to her blog I believe she was anticipating the pirate antho announcement.

First of all, a belated happy birthday to you, Jeff! Your birthday present is here, come and get it!
Second: that picture of you with the eye-patch would look fabulous on the back cover of any of your books :) Can I use it sometime soon?

Bloody hell.....ninjas are coming for you, mister.

The question everyone really wants answered is; is that pie actually made out of pirates?

Arrr, pirate pie, you've got to chop those pirates fine, and mind the bones and splintered peglegs...
