Join us in welcoming Eric Stanway back to our store where he is bringing us his newest release, Spectral Whalers and Other Nautical Legends of Olde New England.
Avast Ye Scurvy Dogs!
Climb aboard and immerse yourself in the nautical tales of olde New England. You'll find it all here — the skeletal crew that drove a treacherous sea captain to madness; the long and bloody history of Nix's Mate in Boston Harbor; the Mooncusser who has to shovel out a sandbar for eternity; a fire and brimstone preacher who engaged the Devil himself in mortal combat; the bizarre gibbet erected on Boston Common to accommodate three criminals at once; and the sea serpent that keeps coming back to Gloucester, just to terrify the locals. There's blood and salt water in all of these tales. So settle back, pour a glass of rum, and get ready for some of the darkest legends ever to rise from the ocean depths.
