Can you recommend some amazing pirate novels?

Written in modern times but set or based in the Golden Age of Piracy (16th to 18th-19th century), and for an adult audience. Can be of historical fiction or historical fantasy.

    "the sea wolf" is not technically a "pirate" story like "treasure island". but more so then, "captain courageous".

    Check out "On Stranger Tides" by Tim Powers. It served as the inspiration for the Pirates of the Caribbean movie of the same name but the movie diverged quite much from the source material. And, of course, since it was written in 1987 as a stand-alone novel it can be read independent from that movie.

    There's also "Pirate Latitudes" by Michael Crichton; haven't read it yet but it's been picked up by Steven Spielberg for an adaptation so I guess it can't be complete crap.

    Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson is often considered a young person's book, but was written for and is enjoyed by adults. It remains the best book on piracy for pure entertainment value.

    Raphael Sabatini wrote "Captain Blood," which is a much better book than movie, and has a couple of sequels, as well as "The Black Swan," also about piracy. No doubt he wrote others as well.

      Thank you! But I prefer modern ones from this decade preferably.
