Pirates of the Narrow Seas : Brag Sheet

Praise for Pirates of the Narrow Seas

PoNS 1 : The Sallee Rovers won “honorable mention” in the Rainbow Awards

PoNS 6 : The Sea Leopard won “honorable mention” in the Rainbow Awards

"This pirate tale is one of authenticity and chock full of action. One could put it on a par with C. S. Forester’s Horatio Hornblower series and Rafael Sabatini’s Sea Hawk and Captain Blood (if either of those two authors had Gay characters). The writing is masterly, the character’s full, the action page-turning. This is the kind of book that GLBT readers have always wanted to read about—their place in the history of adventure."--Rainbow Awards

“a dashing good tale full of adventure and mayhem, slaves and saviors, and the rigors and perils of life at sea”—Sage Whistler, author of Broken

“the scenes onboard lateen rigged galleys, galiots, and xebecks are a delight [ . . .] an entertaining and engaging book”—Rick Spilman, The Old Salt’s Blog

“another page turner [ . . .] recommended reading”—Astrodene’s Historic Naval Fiction

“a book which can stand comparison with C. S. Forester’s Hornblower series”
—Alex Beecroft, Speak Its Name
