Next up: the adventures of Charles Dickens and Ben Dover!

I have found a vein of popcorn in my grandpa's library, and I'm mining it to get me through this stupid obnoxious virus, like ya do, like I'm absolutely sure he did. This particular popcorn is Stuart Woods novels, thrillers. The main character is Stone Barrington, which is quite, um, quite enough. But in this particular volume, he's having adventures with Thomas Hardy and Harry Pitts.

Perhaps we should all let an 11-year-old boy and a Victorian literary enthusiast split the naming rights to our characters. Think of the fun.

ETA: They have just met a character called James Tiptree. Oh dear.
