It is surprisingly difficult to write a passage, let alone a book, in anything approaching Ransome's style. The Times comic effort may have been a brave stab, but it still fell short, in my view. IIRC, some years ago there was a competition in TARS to see if anyone could write a reasonably convincing continuation of the story of "Coots in the North". I don't think anyone managed it.
