A Mainsail Haul by John Masefield (EPUB format for smartphones and tablets)

'A Mainsail Haul' is a collection of 16 sea-related stories by John Masefield, an English writer and UK Poet Laureate from 1930 to 1967. First published in 1905, the book demonstrates Masefield's ability to tell a good yarn. Excerpt: "Gradually, however, the peace in my heart gave way to an eating melancholy, and I felt a sadness, such as has come to me but twice in my life. With the sadness there came a horror of the water and of the skies, till my presence in that ship, under the ghastly corpse-light of the moon, among that sea, was a terror to me past power of words to tell."
