The pirate crew is back in Gideon Defoe's sequel to "The Pirates! in an Adventure with Scientists". "The Pirates! in an Adventure with Ahab" has Las Vegas, treasure hunting, and whale ventriloquism. If you're interested, then read the book.

Favorite character: the pirate with a scarf.

He looked at his second-in-command seriously. "I'm making a list of when it's acceptable for a pirate to cry."
"That sounds very important, Captain," said the pirate with a scarf, fiddling axiously with his eye-patch.
"So far I've got: one - when holding a seagull covered in oil. Two - when singing a shanty that reminds him of orphans. Three - when confronted by the unremitting loneliness of the human condition. Four - chops. I've just written the word 'chops.' Not really sure where I was going with that one. Any ideas?"
