image for Pirates cannonball Erskine Quint as he sinks without a dime!
A load of old cannonballs got him in the end!

Admiral Erskine Quint, intrepid adventurer extraordinaire, after launching his three ships across oceans of cyber space has now been blown out of the water by non-Somalian pirates!

Erskine Quint, an ex-aristocratic, mercurial stud, was last seen nestling his weary, quill pen between the leatherette thighs of an ancient hag somewhere between Kiev and a very Black Sea (She was of Gambian descent) before being blown away by a plethora of pirate cannonballs!

Erskine's treasures accumulated by sales of his unique, quite unbelievable adventures in an outrageous trilogy written by a Mad Dog Englishman with his pet Orangutan sitting on his moist lap have been sunk without trace! Deep-sea divers accompanied by ex-Nazi U-Boats are desperately attempting to recover golden nuggets of pure historical insanity, but sadly the oceans of cyber-space are bottomless pits and the chances of finding them are the same as the impoverished author earning a single cent through official sales!

Never mind, the world of modern literature is filled with piranhas, sharks, pirates, thieves, fools and horses, and those who enjoy the fruits of monumental works of art without paying a penny for the pleasure! Thanks to those willing to journey across vast Amazon oceans, bearing skulls and crossbones searching for galleons filled with jewels, uncut diamonds and precious works of art that leave those who created such riches nailed to a burning cross of eternal hope!

Amen
