All’s Whale That Ends Whale

Coming this fall prepare yourself for the latest cheap capitalization on a family name with Captain Ahab, Ishmael and the gang. Joseph H. Melville, great great grandson of Herman Melville, will take you on a brand new adventure with some familiar faces in All’s Whale That Ends Whale.

Was the white whale that Captain Ahab saw actually just a large human body floating in the ocean a ways away? And was that human body murdered? And say, didn’t that one shipmate say he used to work as a detective?

Who’s this lovely lady who is a ship inspector? Can Ahab charm her away from the unsafe practices on his ship … and into his arms?

Is the crew extra mutinous today, or is that a case of the fabled vampire scurvy, scurvy that causes vampire-like tendencies to develop?

And what’s that over the ocean, a space ship! … from OUTER SPACE?

Find out all of this, AND MORE, in All’s Whale That Ends Whale!

Quotes of the Day!

“Stand back sissies, you’re using my oxygen.”

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

“Call me Ishmael, Jr.”

Mobier Dick: Forget the Whale, Let’s Sell Used Cars!

Whenever I see a book that is so-and-so’s son or daughter I always think – would this book be published if this person wasn’t using their mom or dad’s work as a starting ground? Then I feel bad for being close-minded. Then I call my mom and ask her to get famous. Then I usually get distracted by some comic books.

Anyhow. I think in the case of this fictional Moby Dick sequel, I would read that book. There could be a whole series. Forget the Whale, Let’s Go Shopping! (the limited release Mall of America version); Forget the Whale, Wait What Whale (the limited release for grandparents); Forget the Whale, Now Where’s My Pants? (global release).

Have a good weekend everybody!
