Women of my age are usually out with the kids (or even grandkids). or are out for an evening date night at the coffee shop with their significant other. Maybe even a book club.

Me, I’m in deep space orbiting a red giant star system, relieving a rival band of privateers of their iridium ore. Brandishing my vibro-sword rather than a cup of herbal tea, or ethically sourced java. And swearing… like a pirate… instead of polite, urbane discussion about the weather, or local politics.

With choices like that, I’ll take the pirates any day!

Another attempt at the sci-fi and fantasy covers I enjoyed in my youth. This was a fun take on space pirates. Learned a lot on this one. Especially patience. Enjoy!
