    For someone who supposedly spent time at sea, the author didn't

    For someone who supposedly spent time at sea, the author didn't know that "aye, aye", is the response, not "I,I", nor did he know that knot is a measure of speed, not distance - you refer to a ship's speed in knots, not knots per hour. Sorry, but as a tall ship sailor, I couldn't get past these two blatant errors.
    As for the story itself, it just didn't impress me. I lnow I shouldn't expect much for $.99, but still...

    Fantastic book and reminiscent Lovecraft

    Fantastic book! There are hints of Lovecraft, who was, as I understand, influenced by Hodgson. This book is more than worth the $1 it cost me. I found myself excited to get off work so I could read more. If you like ghost stories I suggest you read this.
