Space Pirates, Aaaarrrr!
Space Pirates (Full Throttle Space Tales)
Space Pirates is the first anthology of the Full-Throttle Space Tales series. Edited by David Lee Summers, editor of Tales of the Talisman, Space Pirates contains fifteen swashbuckling tales of pirates in space, by established and rising-star authors. The contents of this treasure chest of adventure include these swarthy tales of deep-space piracy: Eating Vacuum, by Robert E Vardeman: An asteroid miner matches wits with a desperate pirate who is short on oxygen. On the Even of the Last Great Ratings War, by David Boop: Genetically engineered animals battle humans for control of the space-borne airwaves. Adrift, by Carol Hightshoe: The Flying Dutchman legend takes to outer space. Bad Traveling, by Neal Asher: Pirates sailing the seas of a distant planet find their match in alien monsters of the deep. Carbon Copy, by Denielle Ackley-McPhail: Recently demoted Private Alexander suspects that one of the ships of the space fleet are bearing false colors. Space Pirate Cookies, by C.J. Henderson: Aliens are mocking humanity, and that means war. For a Job Well Done, by David Lee Summers: A ruthless pirate finds himself rescuing a victim of human trafficking on the planet Epsilon Indi 2. Lunacy by Anna Paradox: The moon is being taxed to death, and a teenage girl is caught in the middle.by a satellite laser weapon....
Anthologies can be hit or miss, but this one has favorable reviews on Amazon. At the very least, I'm curious about any story called "Space Pirate Cookies."
