Competition Time!

For no particular reason, here's an extract from a very well-known ghost story of yesteryear/yore. Published a long time ago, anyway, and much anthologised since. Name that story and the author!

I supposed my Hermes, as he led me to the lower regions, had had a little grog, but I said nothing, and followed him.

The Upper Berth, F. Marion Crawford.

I read it for first time last month...

Well done! Have you read 'For the Blood is the Life' yet?

James Everington said...

No I haven't - just been reading a few online on my lunch break. Any good?

It's often put in the classic vampire story category. I think it's not bad, though I haven't re-read it in years.
