Synopses & Reviews
This is an eclectic collection of the author's shorter works. Most have seen print in books, magazines, newspapers, or on the Internet. Some have been expanded for this volume because space limitations in the original publication precluded the author from telling the story in its entirety. Other have been printed the way they originally appeared, but have been appended with annotations either beforehand or afterward. In addition to biographical material, shipwrecks that are covered in this volume include the Andrea Doria, Empress of Ireland, Billy Mitchell Wrecks (Ostfriesland, Frankfurt, U-117, U-140, UB-148), President Coolidge, Sebastian, Texas Tower #4, Bow Mariner, Atlantic (Halifax), Bell Island wrecks (Newfoundland), Dunderberg and Florida (Lake Huron), Miraflores, Shuffled Shipwrecks of North Carolina (Buarque, Equipoise, Mexicano, Cayru, Ario, W.E. Hutton, Papoose, Ciltvaira, San Delfino, Mirlo), Ella Warley, China Wreck (John Sidney and Medway), and shipwrecks of New York (Ajace, Arlington, Bessie A. White, Charles E. Dunlap, Cornelia Soule, Marjory Brown, Panther). There is also a chapter on fossilized megalodon shark teeth.
