I was in the movie theatre not long ago and a preview for the latest Pirates of the Carribean movie started playing.
Protagonist named Jack, zombies, Blackbeard and the fountain of youth. Sounded very familiar.
I'm a huge fan of a not terribly well known author named Tim Powers. He wrote a wonderful little Carribean adventure story with a protagonist named Jack, zombies, Blackbeard and the fountain of youth. It's called "On Stranger Tides" It's currently only found in used bookstores and Amazon. ( click Mata's link )
So I wondered and turns out I'm right.

Looking forward to the movie. How do other people like the franchise?
Are there any books you'd like to see made into a film?
