Pirates in the Caribbean?
That's just the stuff of movies or amusement park rides. At least that's what Terry thought before he washed up on a remote Caribbean island in front of the Booby Bay Cafe and found himself caught up in a cockeyed 21st century pirate adventure.
Terry and the Pirate traces his idyllic days in an island paradise where he is befriended by Albert Lafitte, the amiable proprietor of the cafe ("Our wallet did float in with us, did it not?"), beguiled by the beautiful Remy ("May I ask how long you're going to stare at my breasts?"), nearly killed by her jealous suitors ("Hangin' be a proper death."), and finally lured into the ways of piracy.
When Albert's cafe and sailing ship are nearly destroyed by the evil Murchison Keyes, Albert sinks into a deep Gallic depression, and Remy, Terry and the other Booby Bay irregulars set out to avenge him. The brave but maladroit buccaneers restore Albert's sailing ship, hoist the pirate flag and sail into misadventure amid romance, danger and plenty of gratuitous swashbuckling.

Richard Daybell is the author of Voodoo Love Song and Calypso: Stories of the Caribbean. His stories and short humor have appeared in a variety of commercial and literary publications.
