Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809595109, Hardcover)

From "Over the Side": "Of all classes of men, those who follow the sea are probably the most prone to superstition. Afloat upon the black waste of waters, at the mercy of wind and sea, with vast depths and strange creatures below them, a belief in the supernatural is easier than ashore, under the cheerful gas-lamps. Strange stories of the sea are plentiful, and an incident which happened within my own experience has made me somewhat chary of dubbing a man fool or coward because he has encountered something he cannot explain. There are stories of the supernatural with prosaic sequels; there are others to which the sequel has never been published. . . ." * Also included in this volume are "Captains All," "The Boatswain's Mate," "The Nest Egg," "The Constable's Move," "Bob's Redemption," "The Four Pigeons," "The Temptation of Samuel Burge," "The Madness of Mr. Lister," and "The White Cat."
