GHOST PIRATE TALES Classic Stories from Davy Jones’s Locker EDITED BY TOM MCCARTHY
Ghosts. Pirates. Put the two together and you’ve got a winning combination of the most exciting sto- ries ever written. It’s enough to make anyone say, “shiver me timbers” with delight.
The spirits of Davy Jones’s locker have a long and colorful history among sailors and lovers of litera- ture. From Daniel Defoe’s “The Four Years Voyages of Capt. George Roberts” to Tobias Smollet’s “The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle” to Washington Irving’s “Adventures of the Black Fisherman,” ghost pirates swashbuckle in and out of the scene, stealing the souls of the doomed and frightening the inno- cent. Prepare yourself for a thrilling ride.
