La Petite Mort

La Petite Mort
(By Steve Hobbs)







Crew spun legends of the Flying Dutchman, the fanciful tails told to new swabs to keep them spry on watch in the small hours of the morning are common place but few sailors know the real horrors that roam the Caribbean nights. Mentioned in hexes and whispers by only the saltiest of sea rovers, The La Petite Mort is enough to make a tea toting Puritan turn to the bottle. A cold sweat, a quiver down the spine and a cry in the night for the Almighty are the last things a sailor may ever experience.

    Excellent - btw, if it does not detract from the name, it would be la Petite Mort.

    La Petite Mort, if it does not detract from the 'English' reading of her name...
