A splendid collection of seafarers' tales.

I'm a bit biased, because I went into this expecting a bit more ghost stories, tales of phantom ships and drowned men that walk and eerie lights at the head of an unnatural storm. If I encountered just a few more good sea-fairing horror tales, it would have richly improved my experience.
I enjoyed a couple of the offerings, so I'd go for something else by Marion Crawford, for example. Most of the tales were as enjoyable and memorable as a ration of hard tack without grog to wash it down.
The performance wasn't markedly bad, so much as it lacked much to make it special.
It's hard to pin down individual characters, but the offerings from Ambrose Beirce were as underwhelming as ever, and good standbyes like Saki and Poe left me joyless.
The world needs more nautical horror. A collection of ghost ships and sea monsters pains the genre with its absence.

It hurt to hear the reader destroy these ancient, wonderful stories. She murdered them.
