DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES

Pirates have always been a popular theme in both film and literature for many years. They have gained a healthy reputation as raiders, plunderers, and reavers who like to fight, drink rum, and swim in their loot. I am thinking of including pirates in my fantasy trilogy, but they will be nothing like the ones that existed in the 17th and early 18th centuries. They will not have the gunpowder weapons such as pistols or cannons, but will have cutlass swords while their ships will not be the classic war galleys but Viking-style longships.
