From Publishers Weekly:

This delightful escapade posits the 17th century buccaneers of the Caribbean basin as members of a self-contained, egalitarian homosexual community, an "army of lovers" fighting outside the law on behalf of the English crown. Hero Tommy the Cutlass goes to sea after learning the joys of sex from a ship captain, and quickly becomes a captain himself. The vessels are erotic fantasylands as well as loci for adventure, heroism and hard work. Hunter concocts a fictitious device, that he is merely transcribing an ancient manuscript in which Tommy tells his own story, and interrupts the narrative with mock-serious commentary supposedly penned from his home on the invented island paradise founded by Tommy when the buccaneers no longer had the blessing of the English monarch for their attacks on foreign ships. The clever frame enhances an imaginative, thoroughly enjoyable titillation, a first novel by a pseudonymous author.

From Library Journal:

Here are the memoirs of fictional Tommy the Cutlas, a successful buccaneer (a more legitimate form of pirate) who operated in the West Indies during the 17th century and presided over an integrated crew of men. An endless list of battles and erotic encounters are related in a passionless manner, interrupted by "transcriber" notes providing historical perspective. Tiring of fighting, Tommy founds a utopian colony tolerant of racial and sexual diversity. Buccaneers are presented as almost exclusively homosexual and misogynistic. The best battle scene is in the concluding chapter, but casual readers will probably not persevere through the suspenseless early chapters to discover it. For the motivated, Hunter has created an imaginative community rich in historical detail.
