Swept Away!
Two Boys’ Adventures on The Great River (“With A Thousand Elephants!”)
— A Pseudo Victorian Boys Adventure

Author:  Derien
Genres:  Science-fiction/Victorian Adventure/Queer Teen Romance. 
Notes:  Original story, inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, P.G.  Wodehouse, G.M.  Fenn, Edgar Rice Burroughs and Daegaer.  My utmost, heartfelt thanks to Eor for brainstorming, listening, arguing, poking me with a pointy stick and supporting me in this venture since June of ’05 — I’m sure the experience would have killed a lesser man.  Daegaer has also been very patient, and several others (Littleredhead stands highly among them) have offered corrections, thoughts and considerations which have been very helpful.
