9780006470175: The Pyrates

Repackaged to tie-in with hardback publication of `The Reavers' and to appeal to a new generation of George MacDonald Fraser fans, `The Pyrates' is a swashbuckling romp of a novel. The Pyrates is all the swashbucklers that ever were, rolled into one great Technicoloured pantomime - tall ships and desert islands, impossibly gallant adventurers and glamorous heroines, buried treasure and Black Spots, devilish Dons and ghastly dungeons, plots, duels, escapes, savage rituals, tender romance and steaming passion, all to the accompaniment of ringing steel, thunderous broadsides, sweeping film music, and the sound of cursing extras falling in the water and exchanging period dialogue. Even Hollywood buccaneers were never like this.

From the Publisher:

Hollywood meets the bounding main in this Technicolor pantomime by the creator of Flashman, a gloriously silly swashbuckling saga full of buccaneers, tall ships, desert islands, and heaving seas and bosoms. It’s all there, right down to a Dead Man’s Chest, cleavages that are everything they should be, and characters in sea–boots who say nothing but ‘Arr!’ and ‘Me hearty!’ in a plot that is wonderfully absurd. Originally published in 1983.

From the Back Cover:

The Pyrates pays tongue-in-cheek homage to the swashbuckling books and movies that have always stirred our imagination. In these rollicking pages you’ll find tall ships and desert islands, impossibly gallant adventurers and glamorous heroines, devilishly sinister cads and ghastly dungeons, improbably acrobatic duels and hair’s-breadth escapes, and more plot twists than you can shake a rapier at.
