Bonus features: A new introduction by the author, an essay on how he came to write "Captain Dancy," and, at long last, the revelation we've all been waiting on so long: "What the Parrot Was For."

An enjoyable selection of historically themed fantasy/science fiction; left me wanting to read more from Wat-Evans. If I could do half-stars I'd rate it 3 1/2, but rounding up seems reasonable because it's definitely good entertainment value for 2.99.
