Show Notes

Another great horror short story, this week, from Patrick Hurley.

This week's story contains strong profanity and explicit violence.

In late spring of 1794, villagers along the Gold Coast of Ghana discovered an abandoned merchant ship run aground on their shore. The proper authorities were notified and the local British magistrate dispatched a military escort to investigate. The ship was identified as the Sparrow, which port records showed had departed from Cape Coast, Ghana only 16 days before.
