The Giant Rat of Sumatra pokes its nose off the coast of California, and things begin to happen -- Of piranha fish and a room full of villains -- In which One-Arm Ginger tips his hand, and I get an earful -- Desperate events aboard The Giant Rat, and a bucket of whale oil -- Regarding the fate of The Giant Rat and other important matters -- Containing one surprise after another -- In which a pile of rubble bursts apart, and what jumps out -- And then what happened -- Containing various matters, including an unpleasant stowaway -- In which appears the lady in velvet, and Captain Gallows loses his boots -- In which the tall Mexican talks more than necessary -- Containing an excess of villains and a kick in the dirt -- In which I keep my eyes peeled, and the judge gives a hopeless shrug -- In which Sam'l Spoons returns, and a dead man rises from the deep -- A whaling ship blunders in, and I peel off my jacket -- Containing a full account of the notorious duel and how it ended -- Containing a sprinkle of rain and news of Candalaria -- Enter the man with fleas in his beard -- In which news arrives and I leave -- In which villains spring forth and amazements abound -- Being full of derring-do and daring don't -- How the bold Giant Rat of Sumatra met her fate, and history was made -- Containing all manner of things, including the secret of Don Simplicio -- In which Candalaria returns, and surprises lurk about -- Being full of emeralds and punishments and a scruffy ship homeward bound -- Author's Note: In which the ink-stained writer confesses, and a trilogy is revealed before your eyes
