Old Sails

4.8/5 rating (8 votes)
old_sails_websiteFrom cabin boy to able seaman to Master Mariner, Captain A. E. Dingle worked ships under both sail and steam. Upon leaving the seas, Dingle turned to penning works of fiction, soon becoming a marquee writer of adventure stories during the pulp magazine era. Drawing heavily upon his real-life experiences, his fiction often captures the frailness of human life against the raw power of Mother Nature.

This first major collection of Dingle's work in more than 70 years brings together 12 stories, a short autobiography, plus a thrilling memoir of how the author sailed single-handedly through a hurricane.

Bonus: Also included is a bibliography of the writings of Captain A. E. Dingle.
