Publisher Description

William Wymark Jacobs (1863-1943) was an English author of short stories and novels. His most popular works in the early part of the last century were his humorous tales set around the docks of Wapping and in the taproom of the infamous Cauliflower tavern. Many of his stories were written in a Cockney vernacular and were keenly observant of character. “The Rival Beauties” is one of the night watchman’s most unlikely tales. He narrates the time when his ship came across a giant sea-serpent and they attempted to lure it with them to New York.

About the Author

W. W. Jacobs (1863–1943) is considered a master of the macabre tale, mostly for his work The Monkey’s Paw, a classic horror short story. He was a master at weaving terror and suspense into scenes of everyday life. Nevertheless, his popularity in his own lifetime arose mostly due to his amusing maritime tales of life along the London docks.
