I submitted 'Captain Ed and the Pirates of the Mediterranean' to 'Flashing Sword Magazine'.

http://flashingswords.sfreader.com/titlepage.asp

They wanted it rewritten a bit, and I came up with 'CAPTAIN NED AND THE PIRATES OF THE MEDITERRANEAN' (sorry, Ed and to all those pirates whose names were cut - we did keep 'peg-legged, One-Eye Kate', though; and Bint became 'Queen Nora'!).

Anyhow, upshot is, it's scheduled to appear in the May 2009 issue.

That's $15, me hearties. Anyone know what that is in gold doubloons?

Congrats, womble! I rather like the idea of having blue blood -- plus I have a cousin named Nora ('course, she'll think she was the intended referent all along). Give us a link to your final product if there is one (a link, that is).
