Tales of piracy in the 21st century
Daniel Sekulich’s newest compilation of true stories, “Terror on the Seas: True Tales of Modern Pirates” ($24.95, St. Martin’s Press, May 2009) proves that piracy is more than romanticized tales from the past.
Modern-day pirates prowl modern seas, performing boat raids with modern GPS, rocket-propelled grenades and semiautomatic weapons.
Written action adventure style, all Sekulich’s stories are true tales from sailors, kidnap victims, and even the pirates themselves.
Sekulich is a reporter and documentary filmmaker who has traveled with broadcasters such as the Discovery Channel, History Channel and PBS. His film “Aftermath: The Remnants of War” earned him nine awards at festivals around the world and he is the author of “Ocean Titans.”
