The Pacha of Many Tales "was a Parody of the Arabian Nights (Arabian Fantasy) in which some Tall Tales of fantasy interest the seven "Voyages of Huckaback" (Fantastic Voyages), several of them to mysterious Islands are recounted to the entertainment-seeking pasha." (underscore represents linked cross-reference) --SFE: Encyclopedia of Fantasy, biographical entry by John Clute Compare the seven voyages of Sindbad/Sinbad the sailor. See Arabian Nights and Sinbad (at ISFDB) and "Sinbad the Sailor" (at Wikipedia, above). Second Voyage? As of December 2018, the short fiction series Huckaback is completely represented in the database by six short fiction works that are numbered #1 and #3 to #7 to fit the titles of the later ones, which is to fit the numbering of voyages. The database novelette "Huckaback" actually comprises the tale of the first voyage, a portion of The Pacha of Many Tales frame story, and the tale of the second voyage. {{BREAK}} As of December 2018, ISFDB publication records show the Huckaback stories published only in their original context; that is, publications of the entire collection of linked stories (or novel) The Pacha of Many Tales. #1 "Huckaback" is of novelette length only because it comprises: the first story that Huckaback tells the Pacha, which contains an account of his first voyage a portion of the frame story, as before or after every story in The Pacha of Many Tales Huckaback's second story, which features his second voyage Both stories that Huckaback tells within this "novelette" are of short story length, as are those of his third to seventh voyages, #3 to #7. The story of the Second Voyage differs from those of the other six voyages by a technicality: there is no subheading "Second Voyage of Huckaback" at the point where it begins in the text. That is the only difference evident at a glance. Publications examined in online copies: the original serial; 1847 Bentley Standard Novels #68. Science Fiction: The Early Years (Bleiler Early Years, page 479) covers four of the stories as within its scope, early science fiction, the Third, Fourth, Fifth and Last Voyages of Huckaback. Those listings may be the original identification of #3, 4, 5, and #7 as distinct works.
