Absolutely charming novella about the dashing steampunk captain's stalwart right hand man, and the adventures he really doesn't want to be having, especially not with his captain's love interest (entirely incidentally, the captain and the love interest are both women). Very funny and enjoyable. Unfortunately it's the last in a series and while it reads fine on its own, I can't seem to find the rest of the series anywhere. I gather the publisher went under.

This is the fifth installment in this series of novellas, generally revolving around the infamous pirate, Captain Ramos, although that character does not appear in this particular novella. If you have not read any of these, I recommend starting with Murder on the Titania.

As one might guess, this story features Mister Simms, Ramos's much grumpier sidekick. Indeed, he seems so pessimistic to start with that he was starting to remind me of Eeyore. Despite Mister Simm's tendency to expect the worst
