Overview

This omnibus contains two of Tom Holt's best-loved stories. In Flying Dutch, we learn of the amazing problems drinking can get you into. One little swig from the wrong bottle, and you go from being an ordinary Dutch sea captain to an unhappy immortal, drifting around the world with your similarly immortal crew, suffering from peculiarly whiffy side effects. Little does Cornelius Vanderdecker, the Flying Dutchman, suspect that a chance encounter in an English pub might just lead to the end of his cursed life, one way or another. In Faust Among Equals, the management buy-out of Hell wasn’t going quite as planned. For a start, there had been that nasty business with the perjurers, and then came the news that the Most Wanted Man in History had escaped, and all just as the plans for the new theme park, Eurobosch, were underway. But Kurt “Mad Dog”Lundqvist, the foremost bounty hunter of all time, is on the case, and he can usually be relied on to get his man—even when that man is Lucky George Faustus.

    The truth at last

    As an average person, I have always wondered about the full and true occurrences which fostered the rumor-laden accounts of the Flying Dutchman and Faustus. At last, in a single carefully footnoted and referenced volume, Mr. Tom Holt has revealed the complete and accurate histories behind both of these myths.

    Thank you many times over, Mr. Holt.

    (By the way, I would also recommend any other books by the illustrious Mr. Holt)
