2020 Issue #20



As many of you know, I'm not just a novelist--I'm the Junior Editor at Baen Books, where one of my jobs is to assist in putting together short story collections, particularly reprint collections of classic and modern stories, and COSMIC CORSAIRS is a collection of nothing but space pirates! We've got legendary stories like Larry Niven's "A Relic of the Empire" and more recent additions like Elizabeth Bear & Sarah Monette's Lovecraft Mythos story "Boojum," as well as a couple stories by writers like Fritz Leiber and James Blish that haven't been reprinted since they originally appeared in (if I remember correctly) the 1950s. There are even a few original stories from writers like Sarah A. Hoyt and Carysa Locke--and myself!

That's right, there's a new Sun Eater story in this one: "The Night Captain."

If you've been reading DEMON IN WHITE and caught reference to "the pirates of Nagapur," this is that story. It's told from the perspective of Commander Halford, the Tamerlane's "night captain," the officer in charge of the ship while Corvo and Durand and the rest are in fugue as they travel between the stars. Halford's got no combat experience, and so when pirates board the Tamerlane at a routine fuel stop, he's totally unprepared. Good thing he has help from a familiar face...Hadrian Marlowe himself.
