I’m Reading: On Stranger Tides

On Stranger TidesIf you haven’t read On Stranger Tides, by Tim Powers, you MUST go get your copy today. This is a story about pirates, magic, and a kind of necromancy based on cool voodoo craziness. Can it get any more awesome? It does, because the characters are well thought out and developed, and the prose shines.

This book especially hit home for me because I have been writing a book with a writing partner that deals with this idea of bringing people back from the dead – yes, it’s going to be awesome. And pirates? Who doesn’t love pirate stories? Well, I do, and I’m also writing a pirate story! More than one, actually.

Suffice it to say, if you loved the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, you’ll love this book. Check it out!

  1. Oh, man. I love this book. I found out about it when I was lost in the Monkey Island series in the late 1990s. I wish the movie would’ve followed Powers’ plot more closely.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • I agree! Maybe he can option it again, to me, and get the real version on the big screen?
