Space pirates, pirates and more pirates

The third in the Pirates trilogy of novellas is now complete and live at all the usual places. The series centres on the Junker's Moon  Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company based on the planet Cymbeline:

Pirate Gold - Book 1: Junker's Moon Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company had never been attacked before but that didn't mean its base of operations was unprepared. Marshall Brion began the day with no idea that within a few hours he would need all the concentrated expertise of three generations of Brions. Space pirates were inbound to the station. They were something to be feared but also to be repelled at all costs.

Revenge - Book 2: Junker's Moon Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company had a surge in popularity following the capture of notorious space pirate Dirk Knight. What Marshall, proprietor of Junker's Moon had not bargained for was the thirst for revenge and ferocity of Dirk's wife, Vanessa Longtail. But first there was the question of what to do with Knight's ship which contained an arsenal of weapons all of its own.

Trouble Doubled - Book 3: Junker's Moon Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company is in a state of turmoil and uncertainty, following the grievous wounding of its proprietor, Marshall. He hovers close to death having been stabbed by Vanessa Longtail, the notoriously vengeful wife of space pirate Dirk Knight. Finding she had not succeeded in murdering Marshall, as had been her intention, she returns to finish the job.

The fourth story in the series is being prepared for publication shortly:

Junker's Moon Scrap, Salvage and Servicing Company had the exceedingly dubious honour of being visited by a cult ship, The Garden. The ship was registered as having charitable status and was therefore beyond FBIS jurisdiction. Its owner had stopped short of adding 'Of Eden' to its registered name but that was clearly his intention. Pastor Gripthorne was going to cause trouble with a capital 'T'.
