About the Author

JULIAN STOCKWIN had a passionate interest in the sea from an early childhood and joined the Royal Navy at the age of 15. He served 8 years in the Royal Australian Navy, seeing service around the world, including the Vietnam War. On leaving the Navy he studied Far Eastern Studies and psychology and worked as an educational psychologist and academic researcher. After returning to the UK in 1990 and working in strategic merchant shipping, Julian took up writing six years later and is now a successful novelist, particularly well known for his Thomas Kydd series. He lives in Devon with his wife Kathy.

Bite-Sized Sea Stories, and a topgallant royal joy to read! Feb. 7 2015
By Silas Sparkhammer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Pieces of eight? Or a big handful of salted peanuts? This is a jolly roving nautical tarry-handed joy of a book, a compendium of deep sea trivia, an archipelago of anecdotes, and...a devil of a good book! You'll learn a lot, and you'll love every minute of it. Horatio Nelson and Horatio Hornblower would both agree: if you had only one book to take with you on a voyage, it would be the Naval Institute's Handbook of 19th Century Naval Warfare -- but they'd far *rather* be reading this book instead!
