‘Pirates of Mars’ by Chris Gerrib Book Review

Written by Chris Gerrib, Pirates of Mars is (supposed to be) a sci-fi, “Mars adventure story” detailing a near-future scenario in which Pirates wreak havoc on Mars. Taking place in the year 2074, humanity has begun to colonize outer space and in the midst of all this activity, gangs of Pirates (or in this book, just one gang of pirates) run around and sabotage, well, stuff.  The story opens up by introducing us to our ‘swash-buckling’ group of pirates who are stranded on what is now a ‘dead’ ship headed on a course to crash into Mars. Apparently, this ship is also carrying special cargo, which the pirates must then capture for their investors in order to make their ‘big daddies’ happy. The pirates then send a ‘fake’ distress call to the Volunteer Space Rescue Service team, steal VSRS’s ship and hold some of their crew hostage for ransom.

Sound interesting? You wish.
