The Buccaneer Chronicles: Ghostwalker

"Huffity, puffity, Ringstone Round,
If you loose your hat it will never be found,
So pull up your britches right up to your chin,
And fasten your cloak with a bright new pin,
And when you are ready then we can begin,
Huffity, puffity, Puff,
Huffity, puffity, Puff."

This was originally a New Adventures submision by Karen Dunn and Tony Gallichan, its just been converted so that instead of featuring a wimpy, scottish gnome with his adolesant, unstable companion we have a bullish, egotistical prat with a floating head and kleptomaniac minx as companions.

The prologue and first chapter are as they were so..

Ghostwalker - plot, prologue and chapter one by Karen Dunn and Tony Gallichan.

Everything else by Tony Gallichan - so expect a rapid decline in prose style after the begining.

 

Note to Historians: Despite being set in the Channel Island of Jersey, this story does not feature Charlie Hungerford in any way shape or form. Not even his cigar!
