Description

The Men Inside: Chronicles of a Modern Mariner is a brilliant collection of short stories woven out of the author’s association with the seas as a marine engineer. Exquisitely narrated, the author is able to transport the reader into the deep seas with his characters.

Through the tapestry of his narration, Phillipos is able to delineate the stories of ordinary human beings and their ordinary human emotions on one had, while on the other he dabbles with the realm of the unreal/paranormal. Anecdotal and churned out of his personal memory, this collection is simply unputdownable.
