An interesting story which purports to be from the man who really wrote the story of the Headless Horseman before Wahington Irving "stole it from him". Needless to say, the supposed "real story" is quite a bit more gruesome than the original. Very entertaining story. I will be looking at other works by the author.

We all know that W. Irving got all of the credit and accolades for writing about Sleepy Hollow's Headless Horseman and Ichabod Crane. But, according to the author of "Headless," he, in fact, wrote it and Irving stole it from him. And, to add salt to the wound, Irving purportedly, changed the ending from a "dark foreboding grisly warning" to an "everything works out as it should and all are well" conclusion. The ending is the pinnacle of his argument and the most interesting part of the story. The author tries to use specific examples in order to compare and contrast his "original" work and Irving's published book. to prove his case to the reader. This becomes old quickly. Instead of a calculated attack on Irving, the author mumbles, stumbles, and wanders around tangential topics long enough for me to lose my interest in anything that he has to say. Even though it dragged in places, and the monologues ran a bit long, I am glad to have finished it because the end was so very good. The best part of the book was the comparison of the "printed ending" vs. the "alternate/original ending". The added content regarding "what really happened" to Mr. Crane and Brom Bones was well written and completely unexpected. If nothing else this is a good re-write to the timeless classic. It deserves to be read. The alternate endings were so good that I forgave the slow slogging parts. I would re-read it again. And I suggest that others do the same. I recommend it to older readers due to extreme violence, bad language, and hazardous pranks throughout the course of the story. -AvidReader

I didn't finish this story so I feel as if I shouldn't rate it. There was too much back and forth between "my story" and Irvings, at least as far as I read. It might get better further into the story, so I'd say, try it, you might like it.
