The title of each parody gives away its genre: Soaked in Seaweed or, Upset in the Ocean; Maddened by Mystery: or, The Defective Detective; "Q." A Psychic Pstory of the Psupernatural; Guido the Gimlet of Ghent: A Romance of Chivalry; The Man in Asbestos: an Allegory of the Future; Sorrows of a Super Soul: or, The Memoirs of Marie Mushenough; A Hero in Homespun: or, The Life Struggle of Hezekiah Hayloft and Caroline's Christmas: or, The Inexplicable Infant. If you enjoy take offs and parodies, the stories in this collection are for you. See how many types you recognize as you listen and laugh. (Summary by phil chenevert) (2 hr 49 min)

Nice reading as always from Mr. Phil. Most of the stories made no sense, but they were highly entertaining. thanks

Silly nonsense

Well read. After reading Lewis Carroll, these stories sound pathetic. Not worth listening to, despite a good reading

Good fun
