Buckle your swash and get ready for adventure!
This month's Christian Science Fiction/Fantasy Blog Tour is featuring The Legend of the Firefish by George Bryan Polivka. The descriptions I've encountered make me wish I'd read this one. Ah well, maybe next tour.
The novel appears to be of the nostalgic swashbuckler variety. The combination of high seas excitement and a quest for a legendary animal put me in mind of Kenneth Oppel's Airborn, though that of course features blimps, not ships.
You can read Polivika's blog here.
To enter the "Talk Like a Pirate Contest" associated with this book, see this press release.
In honor of the novel, tomorrow morning I'll post a piratey swashbuckling short story!
