Skulls and Crossbones


Cover artwork “Charlotte,” by Kerem Beyit.

Yargh! Tales of women pirates (NOT book pirates, mind you) from many eras, many settings, many genres. Four of these stories made Tangent’s list of good reads for 2010. They’re marked with an asterisk.

Raise the sails! Adjust the thrusters! Prepare to embark on courageous adventures on water, land, and sky. From Viking battles of revenge and high sea betrayal, to modern-day piracy and space banditry, these twenty tales conjure up our inner pirate. Join the crews of women pirates who triumph in victory, face the gallows, and become unlikely heroes–women who follow the code of the Skull & Crossbones.
