Blue Kingdoms: Buxom Buccaneers is the third anthology set in the swashbuckling nautical fantasy world created by me (Steve Sullivan) & Jean Rabe. It features stories from 10 authors, including Robert E. Vardeman, Lorelei Shannon, Marc Tassin, and a host of others — including, of course, me and Jean. The book is filled with tales of action, adventure, magic, and — of course — buxom buccaneers! BK:BB is available from Walkabout Publishing or Amazon (through their main site and their CreateSpace division).
The Blue Kingdoms universe is a World-Sea filled with adventure and excitement! It is not unusual for islands, or even whole groups of islands, to suddenly appear or disappear. A civilization can spring up one day only to vanish the next. Additionally, the laws of science and magic can vary from one island (or area) to the next. The seas between the islands are plied by Freemariners(tm) — a hardy blend of merchants, mercenaries, and freebooters. It’s a world where a woman (or man) can make her own fortune.
People who enjoyed my other fantasy books will love this anthology. My story, the novella “Sisters in Arms” features my favorite scantily clad hellcats: the Coralshell Sisters. It also gives more clues to the world’s hidden mysteries, and features an appearance by Ali al Shahar from “The Gift of the Dragons” (in Martian Knights) and its own e-book.
