A gathering of the best maritime fiction from the last two hundred years: tales of shipwrecks and storms at sea, of creatures from the deep, of voyages that test human limits on the wild and limitless waters.
Classic adventures stories by Joseph Conrad, Rudyard Kipling, Stephen Crane, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Jack London mix with marvelously 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 Bradbury's "The Fog Horn" summons something primeval and lonely from the ocean depths; John Updike's vacationing lovers retrace the route of Homer's "Odyssey "on a cruise ship. From Edgar Allan Poe's dramatic "A Descent into the Maelstrom" to Ernest Hemingway's chilling "After the Storm" to Mark Helprin's heartbreaking "Sail Shining in White," the stories here are as wide-ranging and entrancing as the sea itself.
