Praise for Pirates of Pensacola:

“A swashbuckling parody, Pirates of Pensacola is a fine, breezy read filled with laugh-out-loud scenes and high seas drama.” —Richard Zacks, bestselling author of The Pirate Hunter: The True Story of Captain Kidd

“With rum, eye patches, peg legs, and a wisecracking parrot in need of a twelve-step program, Pirates of Pensacola blends all the conventions of the pirate genre and creates a novel of comic genius and originality. Keith Thomson is a shrewd and funny writer with a big future ahead of him.” —Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author

“Set in modern times, Pirates of Pensacola follows our poor, nebbishly accountant hero into a life of waterlogged crime on the high seas. [Keith Thomson is the] best emerging comic novelist for a good long while, with touches of classic Rafael Sabatini and the most imaginative Hiaasen.”
—Jeff Danziger, political cartoonist with The New York Times syndicate and author of Rising Like The Tucson

Pirates of Pensacola simultaneously thrills and endears itself with every explosively charged page.” —Richard Rushfield, author of On Spec

Reviews for Pirates of Pensacola:

“With its various oceangoing lowlifes, swashbuckling heroics and quirky humor, Pirates of Pensacola reads like a collaboration between Robert Louis Stevenson, Dave Barry and Douglas Adams after a night on the town.” —The Oregonian

“[Thomson] writes fluid, vivid prose, good dialogue and first-rate action scenes.” —The Washington Post

“Thomson’s beguiling, energetic debut. Crowned with buccaneer vernacular, plenty of colorful extras and a feel-good ending, it’s a vivid adventure tale befitting the high seas of Hollywood.” —Publishers Weekly

“Thomson’s rollicking debut, a tall, fanciful tale…throws us headlong into a world of peg-legged sea dogs and hidden treasure.” —Kirkus

“Thomson mixes a hodgepodge of odd characters, varieties of pirate-speak, and a short history of buccaneers in the area of the Caribbean into an oddball story replete with humor, love, and lots of adventure. There’s lots of swashbuckling action; a romance; and a scene-stealing, rum-seeking parrot. Fun, entertaining, and light, the story produces lots of smiles and more than a few laughs. —School Library Journal, Adult/High School, by Pam Johnson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA

“Brilliantly clever and funny, Keith Thomson has done a remarkable job creating a world that will ring familiar to many pirate enthusiasts. It’s a fascinating, edgy, wonderful glimpse at the pirate utopia of our dreams.” —Pirates and Privateers (cindyvallar.com)

“Devilishly charming and a real pirate treat.” —The Jolly Roger Pirate Journal
