Abstract:

There are famous pirates, and then there are the rest of the pirates. All were a bunch of misfits, thugs, and ne'er-do-wells who spent most of their time bored, waiting for a few moments of excitement and rich booty that could very well get them wounded or killed, or captured and executed. But to most of those who swore the oath of the Brotherhood, it was just a job. Still, a pirate's life was chosen by many, and this collection describes and depicts the high points, the low points, and everything in between.
