Ep.22 Last of the Spice Schooners by Philip Brian Hall


A plague ship enters the Pool of London 50 years overdue, the crew fallen victim to… what?  Vic Mullins narrates this nautical tale of horror.

About the Author: Born in Yorkshire, Oxford graduate Philip Brian Hall is a former diplomat and teacher. Outside work, he has stood for parliament, sung solos in amateur operettas, rowed at Henley Royal Regatta, completed a 40 mile cross-country walk in under 12 hours and ridden in over one hundred horse-races over fences. He lives on a very small farm in Scotland with his wife, a dog, a cat and some horses.

Writing mainly in speculative genres, Philip has had short stories published by AE The Canadian Science Fiction Review, T Gene Davis’s Speculative Blog, The Sockdolager, Flame Tree Publishing and Third Flatiron Publishing, as well as the ‘Up and Coming’ anthology of authors eligible for the Campbell Award 2016. His novel, ‘The Prophets of Baal’ is available as an e-book and in paperback.
