    Summary

    The storyteller pauses and stares mournfully into the flickering hearth. “I miss him, boy. He was the best Nemesis a devil like me could ask for.” The boy attempts to make himself the picture of understanding, in case his input is required. At the same time, he eases out from under the Pirate’s arm and slides backwards, until caught in place by a loud creak. The Pirate’s gaze remains fastened on a distant, sparkling past, and he takes a breath to continue.

    “My Nemesis was the bravest, most noble Commander that ever put a sextant to the horizon!"

    (Notes: Barrett's Privateers is heavily referenced, but the characters are from Hark! A Vagrant.)

    Summary

    It's been six years since he sailed away, and he just made Halifax yesterday. Now the last of Barrett's privateers is out for revenge against all those whose greed or negligence wrecked the Antelope, and with it his life. But things are not entirely what he expected. There's a mystery to be solved, a voyage to be taken, and perhaps even a shot at something resembling a happy ending.

    [EDIT: This is one of the things I most enjoyed writing, but the former title was a bit of an afterthought, and so deeply unmemorable and I grew to find it embarrassing. So I've changed it.]
