Barbary pirates – end

With guys like these, is there any doubting Thomas out there?  Who thinks Mitchell’s uprising will not succeed?  Look at ‘em.  Honestly  ..  against these dudes  ..  do Rais’ poor slave handlers stand a cat-in-hell’s chance?

My thanks to these guys for leading us through the story.  Each as good as the next.  Each as inspiring as Mitchell.


“Barbary Pirates” has been deeply personal.  A friend’s ancestor was captured and enslaved on the USS Philadelphia.  But after the initial fight scene, the story has been make-belief.  I can only hope the narrative remains true to his forefather’s fortitude.

One thing I DO know  ..  the characterisation of Mitchell  ..  it owes a lot to my tough-ass SF mate.  This was you, fella  ..  in case it wasn’t obvious.  Like (fore-)father, like son!



The story has been logged away in rendsz’ world active.
