New book Chasing Conrad from Simon Hall
My second book, ‘Chasing Conrad’, is being published later this month by Whittles, the maritime publishers. It covers the period during which I was sailing as third mate with Shell, after which I moved to general cargo ships and sailed with Ben Line and China Navigation. The book is a follow on to my earlier work, ‘Under a Yellow Sky’, which received critical acclaim and was nominated for the Mountbatten Maritime Award. This latest book should be of interest to people who served with Shell in the 1970s.
It’s available from the publishers http://www.whittlespublishing.com/Chasing_Conrad
as well as from Waterstones bookshops and Amazon.
Kind Regards, Simon Hall.
Sailed on: Valvata, Vexilla, Horomya, Hima, Horomya (again) and Medora
