A plague ship enters the Pool of Lon­don 50 years over­due, the crew fall­en vic­tim to a mer­maid. Scots­man Vic Mullins nar­rates this nau­ti­cal tale of hor­ror.

About the Author: Born in York­shire, Oxford grad­u­ate Philip Bri­an Hall is a for­mer diplo­mat and teacher. Out­side work, he has stood for par­lia­ment, sung solos in ama­teur operettas, rowed at Hen­ley Roy­al Regat­ta, com­plet­ed a 40 mile cross-coun­try walk in under 12 hours and rid­den in over one hun­dred horse-races over fences. He lives on a very small farm in Scot­land with his wife, a dog, a cat and some hors­es.

Writ­ing main­ly in spec­u­la­tive gen­res, Philip has had short sto­ries pub­lished by AE The Cana­di­an Sci­ence Fic­tion Review, T Gene Davis’s Spec­u­la­tive Blog, The Sock­dolager, Flame Tree Pub­lish­ing and Third Flat­iron Pub­lish­ing, as well as the ‘Up and Com­ing’ anthol­o­gy of authors eli­gi­ble for the Camp­bell Award 2016. His nov­el, ‘The Prophets of Baal’ is avail­able as an e‑book and in paper­back.
