Bonus: Free audio book: Howard Pyle’s Book of Pirates

As part of Random Magic Tour: Pirates!, it’d be fun to swap some great pirate yarns - or just listen to a few great tales about the sweet trade, the black flag , pirate queens or the Brethren of the Coast.

On this blog, you can listen to the audio book Howard Pyle’s Book of Pirates. A brief description taken from Pyle’s own preface to the book, can be found here:

What a life of adventure is his, to be sure! A life of constant
alertness, constant danger, constant escape! An ocean Ishmaelite, he
wanders forever aimlessly, homelessly; now unheard of for months, now
careening his boat on some lonely uninhabited shore, now appearing
suddenly to swoop down on some merchant vessel with rattle of
musketry, shouting, yells, and a hell of unbridled passions let loose
to rend and tear. What a Carlislean hero! What a setting of blood and
lust and flame! (Preface, Howard Pyle’s Book of Pirates)

If you enjoy the stories, you can download a free MP3 version of this classic book:

concerning the buccaneers and marooners of the Spanish Main (1903)

The pirate tour is related to the book Random Magic, which has some great pirate scenes.

About Random Magic:
Whenabsent-minded Professor Random misplaces the main character from Alice in Wonderland, young Henry Witherspoon must book-jump to fetch Alice before chaos theory kicks in and the world vanishes.

Along the way he meets Winnie Flapjack, a wit-cracking doodle witch with nothing to her name but a magic feather and a plan. Such as it is.

Henry and Winnie brave the Dark Queen, whatwolves, pirates, Strüths, and fluttersmoths, Priscilla and Charybdis, obnoxiously cheerful vampires, Baron Samedi, a nine-dimensional cat, and one perpetually
inebriated Muse to rescue Alice and save the world by tea time.

If you’d like to find some more fun pirate features, feel free to visit Random Magic Tour: Pirates!  for reviews, video features, photo galleries and more free audio books about pirates and other seafaring rebels, rogues and scoundrels.

Also - browse costumes for stylish corsairs, sing along to rowdy sea shanties, or read some interesting tidbits about the Golden Age of Piracy.

You might also have fun reading about seafaring grub, pirate slang, or famous pirate queens (Pirate Queens series), or just checking out some great pirate quotes from Random Magic.

All told, it’s a treasure trove of all things piratical. If it sounds like fun, feel free to jump aboard as we weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen. Yo-ho-ho!
