Thread Name: Help: Patrick O'Brian's Desolation Island
Subject: RE: Help: Patrick O Briens Desolation Island
Just wanted to say I love your ballad! My car is called Sophie, because it's such a boat, inspired by "Master and Commander". My favorite of Patrick O'Brian's is the third, "HMS Surprise". If you don't know the sloth, you should. You'd have material for a whole new ballad. You might read Sarah Zettel's story "Miss Underwood and the Mermaid", which was inspired by O'Brian's stories.
