New PDF release: A Houseboat in Hell

By John Kendrick Bangs

Combined for the 1st Time John Kendrick Bang’s Hilarious Books A House-Boat at the Styx and The Pursuit of the House-Boat

Where do the “immortal” poets, writers, generals and scientists visit spend eternity? It seems they assemble in a gentleman’s membership, on a houseboat, at the River Styx—the dividing line among earth and hell.

There they could speak about poetry, social thought, and the humanities. Bacon can argue with Shakespeare over who wrote Hamlet; Darwin can achieve new insights into evolution from Baron Münchhausen; and P.T. Barnum can query Noah over his choice of animals for the ark.

But a cloud quickly passes over this idyllic scene. What do you do while Captain Kidd and his team highjacks the houseboat whereas it truly is choked with the immortal ladies? the reply could be obvious—you name in Sherlock Holmes.

High compliment for A Houseboat in Hell:
William Thackeray: “Worthy of Dickens.”
Charles Dickens: “Worthy of Thackeray.”
Henry VIII: “I have despatched copies to all my wives.”
