Overview

Yes-I have heard "Man overboard!" a good many times since I was a boy, and once or twice I have seen the man go. There are more men lost in that way than passengers on ocean steamers ever learn of. I have stood looking over the rail on a dark night, when there was a step beside me, and something flew past my head like a big black bat-and then there was a splash! Stokers often go like that. They go mad with the heat, and they slip up on deck and are gone before anybody can stop them, often without being seen or ...

Yes-I have heard "Man overboard!" a good many times since I was a boy, and once or twice I have seen the man go. There are more men lost in that way than passengers on ocean steamers ever learn of. I have stood looking over the rail on a dark night, when there was a step beside me, and something flew past my head like a big black bat-and then there was a splash! Stokers often go like that. They go mad with the heat, and they slip up on deck and are gone before anybody can stop them, often without being seen or heard. Now and then a passenger will do it, but he generally has what he thinks a pretty good reason. I have seen a man empty his revolver into a crowd of emigrants forward, and then go over like a rocket.

    There's a reason why this book was forgotten about.

    I suppose I wanted to read this book because it was a little "different". I was curious to read a vintage supernatural thriller. Now, I usually don't go in for horror or ghost stories. And I probably won't in the future. But I thought it might be fun when I ordered this through InterLibrary Loan. When I went to pick it up from the library, I was struck by how small and short it was. This is not a chapter book. Rather, it felt (probably because it was) a serial published in a turn-of-the-century magazine. Definitely not epic classic literature. There's a reason why this book was forgotten about. There really didn't seem to be much of a point to the story. It's just a good old-fashioned sea yarn. I didn't hate it, but there wasn't anything to make me like it, really. Just a light read. This might have sent a chill down the spine of the weaker sex in corsets in 1903, but it will barely accomplish a goosebump in today's culture used to Lord of the Rings movies.
