Description

Classic adventure stories by Joseph Conrad, Rudyard Kipling, Stephen Crane, Robert Louis Stevenson and Jack London mix with marvellously imaginative tales by Isak Dinesen, Patricia Highsmith and J. G. Ballard. Robert Olen Butler explores the memories of a Titanic victim who has become part of the sea that swallowed him; Ray Bradburys The Fog Horn summons something primeval and lonely from the ocean depths; John Updikes lovers retrace the route of Homers Odyssey on a cruise ship. From Edgar Allan Poes dramatic A Descent into the Maelstrom to Ernest Hemingways chilling After the Storm, the stories here are as wide-ranging and entrancing as the sea itself.
