Dear Jed...

Thanks so much for starting this thread, and to all mudcatters who have added to it. My husband turned me on to this series...I resisted for a long time, thinking them "guy" books...but have now read every one in the series, and many 2 and 3 times. The characters are wonderfully drawn and the action, when it comes--on land or at sea--is always sprightly.

I loved your ballad, and it reminded me of the great scenes in the books where poetry was spouted over the remains of spotted dick and old port....
