PIRATES (pt 1): In memory of David Hartwell
(click on the image for larger picture of him)

I was shocked to recently discover David Heartwell, the legendary, influential, but modest SFF editor, had died rather suddenly in an accident at the beginning of this year.  It seemed only appropriate to post this short story in his memory.

When I wrote this story back in 1990 for The Fleet: Total War anthology, I poked gentle fun at Mr. Hartwell and his, er... flamboyant fashion choices in the character of Pirate Captain Goodheart, known and feared throughout the galaxy for his neckties.  Given the story's end, it feels strangely appropriate.
