Mission Tokyo Bay - A Novel of War Under the Pacific

   The fleet submarine Shark wallowed heavily in an oily following sea. It was a moonless night with no breeze. The six men on bridge watch searched the dark horizon more intently than usual. Shark lay astride the Japanese convoy routes from the Marianas to Japan—a busy spot in the northern reaches of the Bonin Islands—and the SJ surface-search radar was temporarily out of commission. At 0134, Willie Bonsel, one of three lookouts who were standing on a platform in the periscope shears, broke the silence on the bridge. "Smoke on the horizon. Zero-three-zero." The contact had apparently not fazed Fireman Bonsel, who was noted for his taciturnity, but the other five men on the bridge were electrified. Especially the quartermaster, Jack Childress, fresh out of sub school and making his first war patrol. When he swung his 7-by-50 binoculars to the horizon off the starboard bow, his hands trembled so badly he could not focus the lens. The officer of the deck, Jim Bell, a reserve lieutenant, junior grade, who was Shark's communications officer, riveted his binoculars on the horizon and spoke quietly but authoritatively into the intercom to the conning tower immediately below: "Report to the captain. Smoke on the horizon. Zero-three-zero. Come right to two-five-oh. Secure the battery charge. Put all four main engines on the line. All ahead full."...

The Iron Ship

   ...Between the lands of the Hundred Kingdoms and the senescent empire of Ocerzerkiya lay the Red Expanse. A desert of convoluted stone and fine, shifting sand, it had proved insurmountable in all the long ages of men upon the world. Out on the brilliant sea. generations of sailors passed by on floatstone ships, but though they passed within bowshot of the cliffs, the interior remained a mystery to them. A place of death. The Skull Coast, the sailors called it. To their wisdom thev turned their backs, for the land's face deceived. On the clifftops plants grew in great abundance, flower fields telling lies of water, of which there was none, for the plants teased moisture from the sea mists with thorny fineers. There was not the meanest stream for a hundred leagues. The rare fruits of the bushes were poisonous. Rangy beasts hunted this maquis, and stranger things still clambered ashore with the fogs to gorge upon them. Besides, any fool could see from the landward edge—for only fools approached it—that the thickets gave out quickly. Within a mile of the cliff edge the verdant strip stopped. Beyond it sand grains whispered over each other with no root nor branch to constrain them for hundreds of miles...
