Exploring the lore of the sea in an entertaining way, this informative bunkside read is full of odd ideas from all over the world that have survived the centuries. Quirky cartoons help capture the inherent humour of superstitions.
Jonathan Eyers last went to sea on a Friday in a boat with thirteen letters to its name and women on the passenger list, but he somehow managed to survive. He is the author of How to Snog a Hagfish!: Disgusting Things in the Sea and Final Voyage: The World's Worst Maritime Disasters, both published by Adlard Coles Nautical, and the children's novel The Thieves of Pudding Lane (Bloomsbury).
Illustrated with comical cartoons, this quirky collection of nautical myths and superstitions explores the folklore of the sea and will inform and entertain seafarer and landlubber alike. * All at Sea (January 2011) * 'Fascinating...it's hard to read the book without feeling that if one chose to pay heed to all the superstitions, you wouldn't go to sea at all!' * The Nautilus Telegraph * 'This slim 93-page volume offers a collection that covers many of the strange superstitions that have developed over the years...' * The Nautilus Telegraph (April 2011) * Book of the month (July 2011): 'A recommended and entertaining read.' * Sea Cadets * Eyers's mix of old and new superstitions, evidence and eyewitness accounts make for a diverse and entertaining read. * The Lifeboat Magazine *
