The Pirates of Sufiro is the story of a planet and its people—of Ellison Firebrandt the pirate captain living in exile; of Espedie Raton, a man from the streets of Earth looking to make a fresh start for himself and his wife on a new world; of Peter Stone, the geologist who discovers a fortune and will do anything to keep it; and of the lawman, Edmund Ray Swan who travels to Sufiro seeking the quiet life but finds a dark secret. It is the story of privateers, farmers, miners, entrepreneurs, and soldiers—all caught up in dramatic events and violent conflicts that will shape the destiny of our galaxy.
"When I first 'met' Ellison Firebrandt in Firebrandt's Legacy, the last thing I even imagined
was a future where our hero and his devoted crew did not immerse themselves in swashbuckling space battles
with clever intrigues played out against challenging opponents within the dark reaches of outer space.
Firebrandt's creator, author David Lee Summers, was far more ambitious in the future he envisioned
for his hero.
"Not unlike his other works, David Lee Summers' novel, The Pirates of Sufiro offers extraordinary story-telling, diversity, and battles combined with fine writing, tight plots, and rich, memorable characters. This is definitely one author I'd read again and again." Nicole Givens Kurtz, author of Sisters of the Wild Sage
"The Pirates of Sufiro is a fast-paced adventure filled with vivid characters including rebels, pirates, interplanetary pioneers and the mysterious Clusters—the children of the old stars. [This novel] starts the tale in rip-roaring, page-flipping action against a backdrop reminiscent of Asimov's Foundation series." Gary Every, Pushcart and Rhysling-nominated poet and author of Inca Butterflies
"Along with fine storytelling, David Lee Summers shows a fine wit for cultures." Uncle River, author of The Mogollon News and King Freedom
"The Pirates of Sufiro starts out with a rock 'em, sock 'em battle worthy of the Star Wars genre and then rapidly switches gears to become a kind of Space Family Robinson saga." S. Derrickson Moore, the Las Cruces Sun-News. Click to read the full review.
