       Additional Information  
     
      The once-popular pirate-adventure genre has experienced something of a downturn since the heyday of Rafael Sabatini and Errol Flynn. Chris Bunch ends the slump with the swashbuckling fantasy Corsair, a coming-of-age novel about Gareth Radnor, an honorable young man who goes to sea after Linyati slavers kill his parents. When Gareth finds himself serving aboard a Sarosian ship bound to transport slaves for the mysterious Linyati, he joins with other crewmen to seize control of the vessel--and finds himself the captain of a pirate ship which preys on slave ships and frees the human cargo. His cunning and implacable attacks soon have him pursued by all the gunships and sorcerers of the Linyati, for the slavers will do everything in their considerable power to destroy Gareth Radnor.
