« DEMETER LOG: Two days of fog | Main | Another week gone by, and no news »


Most Significant

This time, a victim actually makes a sound.

When the captain rushed toward the cry, who did he find? The first mate.

Crew remaining: Captain, first mate, one deckhand. (3/9)

It's a fine touch of theater: sound but no visual of the attack.

I was struck by the fog: from July 31 onwards, the Demeter is enveloped in it. Did the Count create it in order to keep the ship concealed from other vessels, or to keep the ship from heading into port before Whitby (if only to get replacement crew members)? The fog might also increase the risk of navigational error, which could lead to shipwreck and disaster for his plans.

So I'm inclined to believe the fog is entirely natural.

Could be. Also sets the stage in fine Gothic style.

Yes, it really does!
