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 talk 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 number of animals for the ark.

But a cloud quickly passes over this idyllic scene. What do you do while Captain Kidd and his staff highjacks the houseboat whereas it really is choked with the immortal ladies? the reply may 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.”
