Pirate Photo from Locus

Jeff VanderMeer • April 22nd, 2008 @ 10:20 pm • Uncategorized

In case you missed Locus this month, they ran this photo of us. We’d told them we’d turned in the pirate antho and they asked for a pirate-y photo to accompany it. So we quickly and ‘tardedly complied. (The other photos we took were much, much worse.) Ann’s wearing the pirate mask Howard Waldrop sent us.

You can pre-order Fast Ships, Black Sails here. It’s kinda important on this antho to pre-order, given the balanced mix of new and established writers. Very few anthologies for the commercial marketplace provide this much of a haven for non-names.

    Bloody hell! Pirates with AK47s! How can you swashbuckle with that?

    That looks suspiciously like the gun a certain Hamster was packing…

    Pirates, AK-47s, and a Hugh Heffner-like robe. Sweet.

  4. Andrew says:

    Is Ann holding a bottle of rum?

  5. Jeff VanderMeer says:

    Yep indeedy.

  6. Jeff VanderMeer says:

    Glen: That AK-47 gets around.

  7. Ann V. says:

    And not just any rum, but Sailor Jerry’s Spiced Rum!

  8. Larry says:

    Considering how much I like rum, how much better is this Sailor Jerry’s than Captain Morgan’s or Bacardi?

  9. Jeff VanderMeer says:

    We really liked it. Very nice spiced rum. I think it’s better, but I’m not a rum expert. It’s a rum thing.

  10. Larry says:

    Ah. Then I shall look for it the next time I go to the wines and spirits store. I’m partial to spiced rum for Cuba Libres, while the mojitos don’t need the spices.

  11. Ann V. says:

    Sailor Jerry’s has a much higher alcohol content than Captain Morgan’s. And it tastes good, too!!!!

  12. Larry says:

    Sounds like a 151 then…I’ll keep an eye out for it, no pun intended.

  13. Nadine says:

    Sailor Jerry’s, I can attest, is really good stuff. Go and get some, Larry. Do this now. It is vital.
