Novels with swashbuckling?

Recently I've been stricken with a definite yen to read novels involving swashbuckling and pirates, but then I realized I didn't know of any! (Except maybe for The Princess Bride.) I would very much love to read a fun, adventurous swashbuckling novel much in the same tack as the Monkey Island games and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, something that promises to be a thrilling, guilty pleasure. Any recommendations?

WWJPlay? (The "J" is for "Jack")

I have been reading Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin series, and I like it a lot. Now I want to play video games set in the era (or thereabouts). Are there any good ones that simulate the Napoleonic Wars or other European and Colonial wars of the general period? Or that have better sailing ship naval battles than the new Pirates!? I liked that a lot at first, but it's too simple and repetitive for me. I have modern computers running windows, OSX, and Linux and a PS2. [more inside]

Live music in the UK in August.. how does an Aussie find out some info?

I'm taking a holiday from around the 25th of July for 5 weeks to the UK, France and Germany. As well as doing plenty of sightseeing, I'd love to see some great live music by some bands/DJs that might not make it to Australia for a few years. Being in Melbourne, and having never been to the UK before, I have no idea about what source to go to, to find out what festivals or gigs by bands/DJs are coming up. Melburnians know to check their local street press, where do the Brits go to find out all their music news? Please recommend some great websites for news, reviews and schedules. Anything with an RSS feed would be awesome, but I'm not worried if it doesn't have one. A poke around in google found www.virtualfestivals.com which seems to be good for festivals, but not much for gigs. Not like the usual street press that I'm used to reading. I had the thought to go to Reading/Leeds Festivals or Creamfields, but I think they might already be sold out. I also have no idea where to buy tickets from. Are there major ticket agencies to head to? Is ebay a good option? Also, any thoughts, recommendations or live music experiences for festivals, gigs or venues are more than welcome! Thanks!

I'm looking for a really good story--I feel like I'm drowning in books but there's nothing I really want to read.
