I recommend j guevera's novelization of Mark Twain's return to the world of the living as he's carried to earth riding Halley's Comet.
Set in 1986 Key West, I'll take j's word for the Key scene (never been there).
His interpretation of what Samuel Clemen's would be like if he did return to the world was spot on. I'm a Mark Twain fan and have read most (all?) of his books.
Using direct quotes from Twain and well-interpreted extrapolations on what Twain might say if he came back, j created an entertaining and interesting 'what if'.
j has an easy, very readable style. His narrator, Reid, is a "t-shirt" salesman (note: pot dealer) who becomes a Twain fan through direct association with the great American author over a month while Reid introduces Twain to such modern concepts as nude bars, Disney World, modern politics and events.
