"The Evil of Thy Doings was just incredible -- descriptive, vivid, dramatic, engaging. Bravo!"

. . . the door beside Calabar opened and vomited forth more puta que pariu marines, the foremost standing tall, his bearing, more than his gilded insignia, denoting him as the Spanish tercio’s captain.

     In his hands he held, dry, primed, and ready to fire, a musket.

     Guay de mi! It was for the damnable ship’s cargo of muskets that Moses, Calabar, and the crew of the Sword of Solomon had come. Muskets urgently needed for some secretive Dutch plan; muskets that Moses and Calabar had been told they would pluck from a Spanish merchant ship “as easily as picking fruit from a tree.” So the pirate Daniel Elfrith had promised.

      Damn Elfrith!

      . . . The Spanish captain raised his musket, sighting it at Moses.



Return to the 17th-century Caribbean where the Great Nations of Europe

strive, and amid the intrigues and battles, the deaths and betrayals, the Sephardic Jewish pirate Moses Cohen Henriques and the Brazilian rebel Fernando Domingos Calabar seek freedom and justice for their people.

A 15,000-word tale that is both a sequel to last year's



And is a companion tale to my gifted co-author Robert E. Waters' (and his

co-author, the esteemed Charles E. Gannon's) novel:

  A treasure trove of tales . . .

From the high seas to high orbit, from swashbucklers to space corsairs. 

  Here be monsters - human and supernatural, time travelers and spacemen, buccaneers, and ghosts . . .

  Twelve gems, each with an illustration. Includes my tale of the historical "Jewish Pirate of the Caribbean" Moses Cohen Henriques.

 (Yes, Elizabeth, there were Jewish pirates in the Age of Sail -- and Spain and its Inquisition trembled.)

The Mouth of the Wicked GIF.gif

"The Mouth of the Wicked, by Bob Finegold, tells a pirate tale filled with many twists and turns. It’s a tale about family, and loss, and how seeing the whole picture can change our perception on what we know, or think we know. I enjoyed this story for the history and the passion of the characters, driven by their own shared history, and their understanding of shared events."

--Geoff Habiger's Reviews

play board games, paint (even if it's by number), build models -- and, of course: READ.
