Flint&Silver Coming to Big Screen? Maybe not…

So last night I discovered that England – that tiny island across the water, already has access to the sequels to John Drake’s brilliant Flint&Silver. So what gives? I thought we Americans were supposed to get EVERYTHING FIRST, and now I learn that the two books I’m so eagerly awaiting are already being read and enjoyed by limeys? There is no justice.

So while discovering the nuggets above, I also found this:

Yarrr! ‘Flint & Silver’ To Sail To the Big Screen – The Moviefone Blog

Now, before you wet yourself in excitement, note that the story is from March of 2008 – so it would appear this is just one of the many unsubstantiated pirate movie rumors. So now we have Captain Blood in Space, Blackbeard (in his own film), AND Long John to not look forward to seeing. Yar. (That’s a sad yar. You can tell because it’s punctuated with a period instead of a more festively enthusiastic exclamation point.)

    Yah, I noticed that last summer and kept waiting for them to be published here. I finally gave up and ordered them from Alibris. I enjoyed “Pieces of Eight” and am in the middle of “Skull and Bones.” Wanna borrow ’em?

    Thanks for the offer, but for now I’ll just try to be patient. I certainly have enough books on my stack already – including the Requiem Shark! Thanks kindly, Paisley!
