Being a sucker for swashbucklers and a long-time science-fiction fan, I've been reading this series with a sense of guilty pleasure. The plot lines are about as original as alien influences aboard the submarine Seaview back in the day, but I still love following the pirate Captain Wilson Cole who hijacked the Teddy R after a dispute with his captain. This time out, Cole teams up with a female siren known as The Valkyrie who has her own ship, and her own sense of duty to her partner in crime. If you like old-fashioned space-oaters, you'll enjoy this tale.
