In the first-ever comprehensive survey of the world's female buccaneers, Pirate Women: The Princesses, Prostitutes, and Privateers Who Ruled the Seven Seas tells of the women, both real and legendary, who through the ages sailed alongside—and sometimes in command of—their male counterparts. These women came from all walks of life but had one thing in common: a desire for freedom. History has largely ignored these female swashbucklers, until now. Here are their stories, from ancient Norse warriors like Awilda, Stikla, and Rusla; to Sayyida al-Hurra of the Barbary corsairs; from Grace O'Malley, who terrorized shipping operations around the British Isles during the reign of Queen Elizabeth; to Cheng I Sao, who commanded a fleet of 400 ships off China in the early 19th century.Author Laura Sook Duncombe also looks beyond the stories to the storytellers and mythmakers. What biases and agendas motivated them? What did they leave out? Pirate Women explores why and how these stories are told and passed down and how history changes depending on who is recording it. It's the largest overview of women pirates in one volume and chock-full of swashbuckling adventures. In this book, pirate women are pulled from the shadows into the spotlight that they deserve.

Anne Bonny: Tale of a Lady Pirate is an historical novel about a woman whose solution to gender discrimination is piracy on the high seas. The daughter of a planter who isn't a planter, member of a church who doesn't go to church, Anne wears men's clothes and makes her own rules. Navy Lieutenant Maynard, the enforcer of British anti-smuggling laws, hangs her uncle, then tries to charm her, but she spurns him, so he rapes her. Anne eventually accumulates a great trove of gold, which she hides with the connivance of Primus, a freed slave. Maynard captures Anne's father and turns him against her. After trial in Admiralty Court, her sentence to hang is commuted to life in prison because she is pregnant. She escapes, but her gold has disappeared. Unknown to her, Primus moved it to a safer location just before he was sold back into slavery. Reduced to menial work, Anne raises her child in penury. Primus finally buys his freedom and leads Anne to her gold. En route to England, Anne defeats Maynard in a sea battle, then hangs him. Her gold buys a partnership in Lloyds of London, where she earns the freedom and respectability she had sought.

After spending a century fighting in a losing war against the most unstoppable force the galaxy has ever known; the confederacy is no more, and humanity is all but lost or enslaved. Keyanna, a shape-shifting organic nanite Rehuman Being and Naya, a Torrey 9 (high gravity world) born human, travel to Deslar, the godmaker world, the last stronghold of humanity. In the past, Deslar has endowed Keyanna with the ability to temporarily travel thru time. On this occasion Keyanna, a self proclaimed space pirate, born on the pirate ship The Twenty-Wun Stars, along with Naya, who like being the superhero off her home world, travel back in time to stop the war before it ever begins. Over three thousand years after the final battle over the soul of mankind, between God, Satan, and Nefarious, destroys the earth, a new chapter begins. The resulting hyperspace blast from the earth’s destruction flings the last of humanity into the furthest reaches of space on their surviving starships. Over 300 years passes before these star cast seeds of mankind reclaim the stars, and begin to find each other. The first of the new worlds to find each other and reconnect old humanity on new worlds, would eventually form The Confederation of Republic Worlds. This union would be marked with the erection of the Jara Timekeeping Tower on Jara Prime, broadcasting a synced time throughout the known universe. This is the Jara Era.

Valoree no longer has to masquerade as her murdered brother and scourge the oceans as Captain Red. She no longer has to command his pirate band in a quest to regain his birthright. She has been named heir to Ainsley Castle. But no executor would ever hand over the estate to an unmarried pirate wench and her infamous crew—no matter to whom she’d been born. And the will distinctly states that in order to inherit, Valoree must be married to a nobleman . . . and pregnant. Upon learning that, the virgin captain is ready to return to the seas—but her crew has other ideas— and for those rascally cusses she would do anything. If they could find a way to put on her a sweet face that would fool the ton, she would handle the rest, even with a drunken prostitute as an “aunt” and her merry cutthroat crew as “servants.” But to herself she swears one thing: she will only marry a man who fires her blood, a man who is not afraid of a . . . Lady Pirate “LYNSAY SANDS has just the right touch of humor and the perfect amount of mystery to hold you in her grasp . . . . LADY PIRATE is a delicious treat.” - RT BOOKreviews

The story of the most famous female pirate in history provides a remarkable personal odyssey from a time when women were almost powerless and at the lowest level of the social order on both sides of the Atlantic. This new biographical work fills considerable gaps in Anne Bonny’s life beyond her mythology to rescue an actual person for posterity. After turning her back on everything she knew growing up in South Carolina to find a sense of personal freedom, Anne Bonny sailed the Caribbean’s pristine waters during the Golden Age of Piracy in the early eighteenth century. Few accurate records exist about these law-breakers, whose lifestyles called for hanging. Fortunately, Anne Bonny was a notable exception to the rule, as she was caught off the Jamaican coast and tried by a court of law, whose records have fortunately survived. So, who was the real Anne Bonny? A heartless prostitute, a bloodthirsty psychopathic, or a compassionate woman of faith and courage? Such a fundamental question has not been adequately answered by historians for 300 years. It is now time to take a fresh look at the life of Anne Bonny to present a corrective view into not only her story but also the seldom explored, but incredibly rich, field of women’s history. The Anne Bonny mythology is today popularly told in Starz channel’s Black Sails and the video game Assassin's Creed.
