Overview

1908. Jacobs is known especially for his sea stories. His familiarity with the wharves and the people who frequented them gave him material for these stories. He is also known for some of his short ghost tales and stories of mystery and the macabre, such as the Monkey's Paw. Sailors' Knots begin: Sailormen ain't wot you might call dandyfied as a rule, said the night-watchman, who had just had a passage of arms with a lighterman and been advised to let somebody else wash him and make a good job of it; they've got too much sense. They leave dressing up and making eyesores of theirselves to men wot 'ave never smelt salt water; men wot drift up and down the river in lighters and get in everybody's way.

Cute short stories from an interesting time to live. The strange character translations make it tough reading occasionally, but you don't notice it after a while.
