#1  Pulpmeister 06-14-2019, 12:58 AM
McTodd, the son of a highland Scot free kirk preacher, is in his mid thirties, a second engineer constantly in search of work on steamships in the late 19th century. His career is somewhat blighted by his tendency to go on whisky benders when ashore.

Here are twelve amusing and entertaining tales of McTodd, several of them set in the arctic regions, to where Cutcliffe Hyne (died 1944) himself had travelled by sea.

1: The Chief of the Starry Head
2: The Pirating of the Shah
3: The Treasure Fishing
4: Lost with all Hands
5: The War of the Quah Ju-ju
6: The Cold-Water Prophet
7: A Deal in Bears
8: The Duel
9: The Late Esquimau Pout
10: The Illicit Sealer
11: The Widow and the Cannery
12: The Mammoth's Teeth

Hello Pulpmeister,

Here's what I was alluding at in my previous posting:

Old version [sic]
ONLY THE SKIPPER lived aft with Sir Rupert and the young ladies and the ONLY the skipper lived aft with Sir Rupert and the young ladies, and I do not think even he was quite comfortable there.

Revised version [sic]
ONLY THE SKIPPER lived aft with Sir Rupert and the young ladies and the young ladies, and I do not think even he was quite comfortable there.

I am not a native speaker of English, but the revised version still seems incorrect to me. Just in case you can confirm it and still want to correct it.

Thanks again for your contributions, I am enjoying this site a lot!
