    "Newspaper Review" For landlubbers If a voyage on the QM2 is out of the question for whatever reason, try living life on the high seas through the printed page. Francis Kerr Young of Hamilton gives an intimate inside glimpse in his novel, Hang On A Second!, a murder mystery that takes place on board a magnificent fictional ocean liner called Queen of Dalriada (which may seem an odd name until you figure it out. Hint: Frank was just a young pup from a small Scottish town when he joined in the service of the original Queen Mary as an engineer.) His wonderfully entertaining self-published novel is full of detail and description of Dickensian calibre, and populated by characters of the first order, but it needs some polishing up by a keen-eyed editor. Still, it's a worthwhile story told by a word-loving poet who spent five years above and below decks on the Mary and generously shares his experiences in a fictional form. If you can't figure out the title, drop in to Coles... More > Burlington Mall today from 1 to 3 or Coles Jackson Square on Thursday, Dec. 14, from noon to 2 p.m. where Frank will be telling tales and signing books. He'll be glad to explain and you'll love the Scottish burr. He'll also have copies of his other books: Round About Christmas And Other Round About Stories; and The Legend Of The Mary Celeste And Other Poems, an amazing collection of poetry -- many with a maritime theme -- in epic, ballad, villanelle, limerick, sonnet, cinquain, ode, haiku, rondeau and all that other stuff you learned in high school English and promptly forgot.
