Episode CXXXXIII: Strange tides

Yarr, ye scurvy dogs sailin’ on the Flying Dutchman thread — it’s the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, On Stranger Tides.

Hang on there, though : On Stranger Tides is a fantastic novel by Tim Powers, my favoritest pirate/zombie story of all time. What abominations will Disney be performing to warp a mad, wild standalone novel that doesn’t have any of the characters of the franchise into a continuation? Powers approves, at least, although that may mean he’s just overjoyed to be about to be rolling in money.
