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 concept, 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 collection 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's jam-packed with the immortal girls? the reply will 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.”
