"The whaling ship was on its last, its vertical, voyage." (The Wind Whales of Ishmael by Philip José Farmer)
Looks like this book is starting off with a ship sinking. Not a bad start, and to be expected from 'science fiction's incredible sequel to Moby Dick.' Only poor Ishmael survives to witness the sinking of the Pequod but his adventures appear to only be begining.
