Today is Talk Like A Pirate Day.
Marvel published a comic-rendered version of Treasure Island. This is crazy! Full-color throughout, glossy pages, hardcover. I dug up this booty at the Goodwill for 50c, but the list price is $19.99
I’m enjoying this, complete with its Hiii-Yaaahs and googley-eyed parrots.
Bjorn Larsson continues Long John Silver’s story in his novel, Long John Silver, English translation published in 1999 in Great Britain. I found this at the used book store. I’ve started reading this, it reads nicely, an is written as though an autobiography.
The latest Captain Alatriste adventure, the English translation published in 2010, is Pirates of the Levant. ’nuff said.
More pirate books and music and political parties and stuff coming later today.
