Princess Lois has been kidnapped by Anatoly the Handsome, who wants to marry her. Cue 'damsel in distress' to be rescued by none other than our own heroic Blart. He sets out on the good ship The Golden Pig with Olaf the innocent - who believes what everyone says all the time - and Kupverstich the Strange - an explorer-come-scientist whose ingenious explanations for the natural world have one thing in common: they're all wrong. They must battle cut-throat pirates, a sixteen-tentacled octopus, escape the suffocating bureaucracy of Triplicat, where they are briefly marooned, not to mention evade the Guild of Assassins, who have a contract to kill Blart, in their selfless (well, almost) bid to rescue poor Lois. But will they make it in time?
"Letters From a Sailor" is a chronology of actual letters written by my father when he first joined the U.S.Navy, that he sent to his mother and father. This is the story of my father, a young man from a small town in Pennsylvania, who had never ventured outside the states of Pennsylvania and perhaps New Jersey before he joined the Navy. He joined the Navy to see the world and his observations and experiences are factually chronicled through letters he wrote home from 1935 to the beginning of 1937. There are no major sea battles taking place in my book, just day to day experiences of a young man in the U.S. Navy during an interesting period of time. A quick and fun read.
