Happy New Year!
Sorry for the silence, but I work in a bookstore and retail gets really nuts during the holidays. I’m also recovering from one of those colds that throws you down and stomps on your head.
Meanwhile I’ve been reading and pursuing books on pirates and privateers. I should have an “Addition Reading” list for Pirate Latitudes posted soon.
While you wait, here are two useful links:
The Caribbean map for Pirate Latitudes
(Published on the end papers of the hardcover)
Rob Ossian’s Pirate Cove
This fascinating website has pirate and privateer biographies, plus historical info on many aspects of piracy—weapons, ships, nautical terminology and pirate music.
Wishing everyone a glorious 2010! Enjoy this New Year’s post from my other blog Marla’s Musings:
One Good Year
