Summary

The sailing ship Mortzestus is far from shore when the wind drops away and a mysterious mist surrounds the ship.

As the days drift by, the observant sailor Jessop spots something half seen creeping over the taff rail. Then men in the rigging are attacked, a man disappears, and everyone starts to get scared. Then Jessop sees something below the water following the ship....

Hodgson's background at sea lends authenticity to the shipboard life on the Mortzestus which is a great contrast to the supernatural aspects of The Ghost Pirates. The growing fear among the men is slow, palpable, and menacing. The crew are menaced by something that few of them can see and the dark nights on the ocean become alarming. Hodgson is really in his element when he writes stories that take place aboard a ship.
