Price: Free
The adventures of a 16th century poet who travels to the New World in 1588. The story covers his departure from his ship while still several miles offshore and his meeting and integration into a tribe of native Americans who aid him in transferring abandoned English settlers from Virginia to New Spain, gaining the adventurer a ticket back to Old Spain in triumph as a hero. The story is presented as a collection of poems puportedly written by the 16th entury English poet M. A. Sempine with spurious scholarly annotations by Sir Edmund Dredsky, a fictitious 20th century archaeologist, with further anotations and editorial commentary by the author. The entire document is full of nonsense, just for fun, and suitable for all ages, especially those who have taken English literature in college in the last three hundred years or so. by Mac Wilkey

    "Delightful ( and mad! )" Although there is some inherent humour in these poems from another of mac's pseudo 16th century journals, it the annotations which steal the show, deliberately of course. You will laugh, not uproariously, but gently. More wit than straight comedy. A very, very well done. John Haines ( Josh Rogan )

    "delightful whimsy" This is great fun. As a writer who does his fair share of (serious) annotations I enjoyed these very much!
