Okay, you can uncross your fingers and open your eyes.  Your wish has finally come true.  Fantasy Flicks is Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library's newest film series.  It's just what it says on the tin: movies with some element of realism, some parsimonious narrative shred of the numinous, the impossible, the beguilingly made-up. Planets uninhabited and otherwise, fairies, space marines, time travel, wayward otherworldly machines, and the reality-bending light-out-of-darkness of every universe.  And, perhaps, a little adventure and romance, if our voyage permits.

The Littlest Pirate KingI'm not terribly sure what to make of this book. I like that. I don't really understand what the author is trying to say. In that way, I suppose this book is rather poetic. One side of me feels like it's a morality tale, while the other side sees it as a morbid horror story. Yes, the pirates are murderous fiends, but they're murderous fiends who grapple with morality, ethics and spirituality.
