From the Text:
"An undulating blanket of ruin spread to the horizon off the port side of the Mackay-Bennett. Wedged between gray sky and blue-black sea lay the thin brown netting of shattered wood and the dead. The Embalmer saw a bright flash of color: the circle of an unstained red and white lifebelt, bobbing, empty.
He tried to count the bodies, corked and frozen stiff on the waves. Ten. Tens. Fifty. More, spreading, to his untrained eye, for a nautical mile, perhaps more. The crew made grim and determined expressions, but to the Embalmer, it was a ripe field.
He made no effort to contain his round-faced happiness.
'We can work with this, lads!' he said, nodding, 'We can work with this!'"
In this Tale of the Haunted Titanic, a humble cable-repair ship is called into emergency duty: a mission to recover the RMS Titanic's dead. As a talented embalmer begins to draw bodies from the deep, a body threatens to draw him into the depths.
Written in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Titanic disaster.
