John Pride said, "First, are you aware that there is another in this mansion--or was?"

"I did not even know this was a mansion. It seems only one room."

Well, no adventure on the high seas and not so much in this pulp adventure of parallel worlds. (the other is on the far side of the sun with the same rotation period so we can't see it). It's different; sort of like the world was like when the mongols ruled much of Asia and Europe. Warring tribes, and lots of injustice there from a nasty ruler.

Goes back, finds girl, Gets help (the golden apes), confronts the baddie. All Ok.

Adventure on the high seas! The true life tale of Sir Francis Drek, Captain of Her Majesty's ship the Golden Ape. Sir Francis and his crew of hearties were the first men to sail from England to Reno, Nevada in 1540. First Mate of the Golden Ape, Alexander FitzBoyle stayed on in Reno and founded the first all-you-can-eat buffet in the New World.

ps: I'm actually going to read this one. Sounds like my kind of book. And am sending in a long overdue donation to ManyBooks. AND YOU DO THE SAME!
