I read the "League of Extraordinary Gentleman" movie
adaptation solely because Tom Sawyer was a character
in it.  (I have yet to see the actual film, but I
found the book somewhat entertaining, for what it
was.)  In other words, I would love to read any
chapters/stories/novels featuring these characters.
Feel free to send them to me, it would make my day.
Thanks.

While I'm on the subject, does anyone know of any
quasi-sequels besides the two recent "Among the
Indians" books, "The Further Adventures of HF," and
the two books by Clement Wood, "More Adventures of
H.F." and "Tom Sawyer Grows Up?"  Any help would be
appreciated.
