Oh oh, oh, just look who has a livejournal. gideondefoe. Gideon "adventures with pirates" Defoe. He also has his own website, because (he says) Rupert Murdoch told him to: Rupert assures me he would like nothing more than to spend millions of pounds on publicising my pirate books, but he says he can't spare the cash. I think this is partly because he loses so much small change in that wrinkly face of his, but mainly it is because he is saving up for one of those Doomsday Planet-Eating Devices, "like Galactus has!". [Via stellanova.]

I realise that some of you may know this already but other people need to know ... I hope that this useful reminder will brighten your afternoon.

(The irrelevant title comes from my latest spambot poet (it , be !) -- here's one of my recent favourites:

His new pirate book (The Pirates in an Adventure with Whaling/Ahab - there seems to be a discrepancy between his site and Amazon) - is listed in Amazon as a "perfect partner" of "How Animals Have Sex".

Just so you know.

....which is also 1/2 by Gideon Defoe. Is it the same Gideon Defoe? I don't know.

I'm not convinced by those pandas
"Weirdly, this is called The Pirates! In An Adventure with Ahab in America. Why?"

I don't know, maybe whaling was considered too savage a term for American sensibilities...
