More About the Author

Much like removing a bandaid I suppose the best way to get through this is to rip it off as quickly as possible, accept the pain and move on:

My name is Derrick Ferguson and I'm from Brooklyn, New York where I've lived most of my life. Married for 27 years to the wonderful Patricia Cabbagestalk-Ferguson who lets me get away with far more than is good for me.

My interests include old radio shows, classic pulps from the 30's/40's, comic books, fan fiction, Star Trek, pop culture, science fiction, animation, television and movies...oh yeah...movies. I'm currently the co-host of the podcast BETTER IN THE DARK where my partner Thomas Deja and I rant and rave about movies on a bi-weekly basis.

My primary love is reading and writing and I've written five books to date:

Dillon And The Voice of Odin, my love letter to classic pulp action/adventure with a modern flavor and the sequel, Dillon And The Legend of The Golden Bell

Derrick Ferguson's Movie Review Notebook and it's sequel The Return of Derrick Ferguson's Movie Review Notebook.

Diamondback Vol I: It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time, a spaghetti western disgused as a modern day gangster/crime thriller.

It's another epic outing for Dillon and friends, and I've yet to be disappointed. Derrick Ferguson has crafted a New Pulp character who has not only staying power, but crossover potential as well, meaning that even folks who don't get into pulp
could appreciate the series as much as diehard fans of the genre. I also mean "crossover potential" in the other definition as well. Seriously: Dillon can and should cross over into other mediums, like film, and he would rock them.

The plot is a pseudo-sequel to "Dillon and the Legend of the Golden Bell", but readers who didn't check that book out (but they should!) won't get lost. The tale centers around the growth of piracy in the waters surrounding the island-nation of Xonira, a land that was founded by pirates itself. A mysterious group asks Dillon to investigate, since they believe that Dillon's old friend (and Xonira's leader) Lord Chancellor C'Jai is in on the piracy. Dillon agrees, and proceeds to sail into the adventure with a Diesel-powered sub full of motley friends and allies. When it hits the fan, it hits it hard and delivers thrills and action aplenty in the true Dillon tradition.

Ferguson consistently delivers quality, and he once again brings the goods here. One of the things I love about this series is the hints and suggestions of the wider scope of Dillon's "universe". The reader always gets hints about past adventures, future possibilities, and things going on elsewhere in the world within the books. It's things like this that make reading the Dillon books so much fun to read.

I don't have any complaints about the book. I wasn't happy originally with the introduction of Shon Pierri, who actually appeared before in the short story/comic "Dillon and the Escape from Tosegio".

This is the 4th Dillon book I've read from Derrick Ferguson and it is one of my favorites. If there is an author out there that can write better action sequences in prose, I haven't found him yet. Pirates of Xonira is a mile-a-minute adventure in the mold of a modern day Indiana Jones - Dillon is the kind of fast talking, hard loving, ass kicking kind of guy we all dreamed of being as kids.

The only bad part of this book was that it ended and I wanted MORE!

5 out of 5 thumbs up from me for this latest Dillon adventure.

This book was a blast of action from start to finish, but sprinkled with a little humor just to give you a break every now and then. Dillon finds himself heading back to the country of Xonira, a place he helped keep from falling into the wrong hands just a few years before in Legends of The Golden Bell. Eli Creed is once again enlisted, and a Woman is thrown into the fold, who proves to be a great asset in the battles that follow. There is action in the states as well as once they reach Xonira, and lots of twist and turns to keep you flipping the pages anxiously. This for me was if not my favorite Dillon so far, right up at the top, and believe me that is saying a lot, because i have enjoyed the character immensely!!! Go out and get yourself a copy or two and see for yourself

They say that the only certainties in life are death and taxes, but I've got a third certainty: a Derrick Ferguson Dillon yarn will always be spectacular.

I'm no stranger to Ferguson's writing or the world of Dillon. I was both fortunate and unfortunate enough to jump onboard when the first book, Dillon and the Voice of Odin, was initially released almost ten years ago. I say fortunate because I've gotten to spend that time with this character, reading and in some cases re-reading his adventures. I say unfortunate because that also means I've had to endure waiting for the next book to come out. There have been four Dillon books to date: Dillon and the Voice of Odin, Dillon and the Legend of the Golden Bell, Four Bullets For Dillon (a collection of short stories), and now Dillon and the Pirates of Xonira. Each one has been superbly written, with white-knuckle action, snappy dialogue, and witty humor.

This latest tale comes on the heels of The Legend of the Golden Bell, and just like in that book, we see Dillon returning to the fictional nation of Xonira. When I first heard that this book would take place in Xonira again, I have to admit some skepticism on my part--we just finished a tale there, so why did we need to return so soon when Dillon is a global adventurer? But my skepticism was unfounded, as Xonira feels as fresh and as intriguing a setting now as it was a few years back when it was first introduced in The Legend of the Golden Bell.

Dillon, of course, is back. Along with his frequent partner-in-crime and mentor, Eli Creed (who, despite retiring, seems to be doing a very bad job of actually staying retired, and bless him for that as he's always a fun addition).
