Three previously unpublished short stories by the great Patrick O'Brian - Noughts and Crosses, Two's Company and No Pirates Nowadays. Noughts and Crosses: When Sullivan and Ross decide to go shark fishing among the atolls of the Great Barrier Reef little do they know what awaits them. With their schooner beached for cleaning they take a small whaler out to sea, but when the very devil of a storm turns the whole of the sea white, it drives them to the nearest atoll for shelter. It is only when they set out once again that they discover the seas are now filled with sharks, driven to a bloodlust by the smell of their butchered fellows that clings to the whaler. Becalmed and surrounded by the world's most fearsome predators, Sullivan and Ross discover that the hunters and become the hunted.Two's Company: The lighthouse was one of the most lonely in the world, guarding a dangerous reef in the cold northern seas. It therefore seemed a good idea to Sullivan and Ross that they both be its keepers; after all, two's company. But long months of isolation and boredom can test even the stoutest of friendships. So when a great storm deposits the carcass of a huge whale on the rocks, attracting to it flocks of hungry seabirds and packs of deadly sharks, and later the arrival of two unexpected guests, it provides the two friends with a welcome distraction from their tedium. Yet as the months drag on, they find that there is only so long that man can live in peace with his fellow. No Pirates Nowadays: As their schooner inches through the dense yellow fog of the northern Pacific, Ross is beginning to regret agreeing to Sullivan's latest plan. Their search for the island of Sakhalien, to hunt for precious sea-otters, is leading them nowhere. The appearance of a fellow ship should be cause to lift their mood, yet the captain and swarthy Malay crew of the Santa Maria leave Ross feeling all the more uneasy. But when their paths cross once again it is Su 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Hardy. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hcuk/001879/bk_hcuk_001879_sample.mp3.

Epic adventure in a strange world by best-selling author Jack Conner. A thousand years ago, the sea began to change, and the change spread. Now the boiling, toxic, lightning-wreathed Atomic Sea has encompassed every ocean on the planet, and the creatures that live in it have become mutated and unnatural. The sea's taint can infect any human who comes in contact with it or with unprocessed seafood, killing them... or altering them. No one knows why the sea has become this way or what it portends, only that it's irrevocably changed the world. Meanwhile, world war has erupted, and the small country of Ghenisa, like many others, is tottering on the brink of collapse under the onslaught of the Empire of Octung. Dr. Francis Avery, a middle-aged widower, is aboard a military whaling ship far out on the Atomic Sea, when a series of murders onboard propels him down the rabbit-hole of danger and terror unlike any other. Soon he becomes aware of a spy on the ship, but that's just the beginning. With the help of the grizzled whaler Janx and a mysterious woman named Layanna, he will embark on an epic quest to save Ghenisa from Octung and unravel the secrets of the Atomic Sea. This is the opening volume of a multi-volume saga of adventure and high stakes in an awe-inspiring world unlike any you've ever seen before. Welcome to the world of the Atomic Sea. 1.

Travel 30 miles north, south, or east of San Francisco city hall and you'll be engulfed in a landscape of thick traffic, fast enterprise, and $6 cappuccinos. Venture 30 miles due west, however, and you will find yourself on what is virtually another planet: a spooky cluster of rocky islands called the Farallones. Journalist Susan Casey was in her living room when she first glimpsed this strange place and its resident sharks, their dark fins swirling around a tiny boat in a documentary. These great whites were the alphas among alphas, the narrator said, some of them topping 18 feet in length, and each fall they congregated here off the northern California coast. That so many of these magnificent and elusive animals lived in the 415 area code, crisscrossing each other under the surface like jets stacked in a holding pattern, seemed stunningly improbable and irresistible. Casey knew she had to see them for herself. Within a matter of months she was in a 17-foot Boston Whaler, being hoisted up a cliff to face onto the barren surface of Southeast Farallon Island, part of the group known to 19th-century sailors as the "Devil's Teeth". There she joined the two biologists who study the sharks, bunking down in the island's one habitable building, a haunted, 120-year-old house spackled with lichen and gull guano. Less than 48 hours later she had her first encounter with the famous, terrifying jaws and was instantly hooked. Curiosity yielded to obsession, and when the opportunity arose to return for a longer stay she jumped at it. But as Casey readied herself for shark season, she had no way of preparing for what she would find among the dangerous, forgotten islands. The Devil's Teeth offers a rare glimpse into the lives of nature's most mysterious predators, and of those who follow them. Here is a vivid dispatch from an otherworldly outpost, a story of crossing the boundary between society and an untamed place where humans are neither wanted nor nee 1. Language: English.

What is the secret of the Atomic Sea? Toxic. Mysterious. Lightning shoots up from it. Just to breathe the air above it causes mutation. Now, in a time of world war, one man will be pressed to discover the truth and unlock the secrets of the Atomic Sea, or the whole world will be plunged into nightmare. Join listeners around the globe in delving into the mysteries of this strange world. A thousand years ago, the sea began to change, and the change spread. Dr. Francis Avery is aboard a military whaling ship far out on the eerie Atomic Sea when a series of murders onboard propels him down a rabbit hole of danger and terror. For years he's tried to forget the deaths of his wife and child at the hands of the Empire of Octung, which has declared war on the world. He's fueled his anger into helping the defense against Octung and drowned his sorrows with whiskey. Now he becomes aware of an Octunggen spy on the ship. When his friend is murdered, he has no choice but to track the killer. As if this wasn't enough, suddenly a mysterious woman is pulled from the toxic, lightning-wreathed depths of the Atomic Sea. Though weak, she's alive and unaltered by the waters - which should be impossible. Her name is Layanna, and only she can stop Octung. As her doctor, Avery brings her back to health and in time grows to form an attachment to her...an attachment threatened when the spy who killed his friend is ordered to assassinate Layanna, too. Avery must save her and help her accomplish her mission, or the whole world will fall under Octung's shadow - and that of its enigmatic rulers. That's just the beginning. With Layanna and the grizzled whaler Janx, Avery will embark on an epic, globe-spanning quest through a strange world to save it from Octung and unravel the secrets of the Atomic Sea. Get ready for high-flying action and excitement featuring zeppelins, romance, Lovecraftian horrors, and more twists and turns than you can shake a stick 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ray Greenley.

The Cruise of the Cachalot

'[The Cruise of the Cachalot] is immense-there is no other word. I've never read anything that equals it in its deep-sea wonder and mystery; nor do I think that any book before has so completely covered the whole business of whale-fishing, and at the same time given such real and new sea pictures.' RUDYARD KIPLING The Cruise of the Cachalot is the story of a ship-a South Sea whaler-and the men who sailed on her. First published in 1897, it is the first whaling account written from the standpoint of an accomplished seaman, by an accomplished seaman. In 1869, at age 12, Frank Bullen went to sea. Over the years he travelled the world while serving in every capacity from ship's boy to first mate. In 1883 he became a clerk in the relatively new British Meteorological Office where he made a sufficient name for himself to eventually become a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society. But, his first love was always the sea; and his primary respect was always for the common seaman. As a result, he spent the last years of his life writing books and lecturing in an attempt to better the health, safety and living conditions of those men. The the level of detail presented in this book is truly astonishing. Making it all the more remarkable is that every bit of it is based on first-hand experience, and delivered with a unique and engaging mixture of literary simplicity and nautical authority. If you wish to genuinely understand the world of the 19th Century whaler, the book to read is not Moby Dick, or some other moby-clone. It is THIS one. 'Mr. Bullen has a splendid subject, and be handles it with the pen of a master... The Cruise of the Cachalot is a book which cannot but fascinate all lovers of the sea, and all who can appreciate a masterly presentation of its wonder and its mystery, its terrors and its trials, its humours and its tragedies.' THE LONDON TIMES
