April 14/15, 2012 commemorates the 100 anniversary of the sinking of the famous ocean-liner RMS Titanic. Here is a story I wrote to all the people and dogs who perished on the fateful night. This is... More > a children's story about First Officer William Murdock's Newfoundland dog, Rigel. The story is a legend based on an true historical event - reports that this dog heroically saved a lifeboat of people who narrowly survived from being rammed by the rescue ship Carpathia in the deep, darkened, and frigid waters of the Atlantic. Rigel was reportedly hailed as a major factor in preserving a number of lives that night and preventing them from becoming themselves victims of the ill-fated Titanic You may find that the style that this story is written in is a bit unusual. That's because I've written it from Rigel's point of view. He was, as the legend tells us, a survivor of the tragedy himself and so lived to tell his tale as the narrator.< Less

For over 20 years, the Greyhound of the Seas, the Cunard Liner "Mauretania" held the record for the fastest Transatlantic crossing. Much loved and admired, after two decades as the pinnacle... More > of ocean liners, her time came to end. First laid up and then, in a fanfare of nostalgia, consigned to the breaker's yard in Rosyth, she ended her life at the hands of a breaker's torch. Although modern historians revile such an ignominious fate, the "Mauretania's" demise helped to rekindle local industries, her steel helping to build the next generation of ocean liner - and her sumptuous fittings being snapped up by owners of stately homes and public houses to give future generations a hint as to the luxury the "Mauretania" once embodied. To this end, this slim volume recounts the end of the ship's life and the ensuing demolition process, an epilogue often overlooked in many books due to its obvious distasteful nature to ocean liner enthusiasts.< Less
