The Ghost Pirates
Meet Jessop. He is the sole survivor of the ill-fated final voyage of the ship, Mortzestus. When he's rescued from the sea by the crew of the Sangier, he tells them what happened to the Mortzestus when it encountered what may have been ghosts or interdimensional beings. The dialect takes some getting used to, but the impending sense of doom and suspense make this compact novel a true classic.
