I've been looking to buy "Out of the Unknown" or "The Sea Thing", which
I think it was reissued as, for quite a while, as an ebook. Had the
former years ago hardcopy. Cannot find it on Amazon, any suggestions?
For that matter, any of E. Mayne Hull's work.
"The Sea Thing"
ebook version at the bottom.
I don't see "Out Of The Unknown" except in a note about "The Ghost".
(But the indexing is sometimes a bit lacking/confusing there)
_Prospero's Isle_ is a very interesting website. One of its articles
argues that German contains more words than English. 
The website uses php to access its indexed articles. For instance,
it uses article214 as a container for the VV overview. Given the lack of
a descriptive name for the container, a cross reference is mostly
mandatory in order to know what the heck article214 contains.
In contrast, James Nicoll uses a descriptive name for each of his
containers. For instance, they-burn-in-our-brains  is the descriptive
name for his _The Gate of Gods_ (Wells) review.
Nicoll nomenclature works better for me than the php-index approach,
because the latter requires a higher level of technical competence. Its
more complicated, ergo there's more things that can break. "Anything
that can go wrong, will go wrong" - Murphy's law. O'Toole's Commentary
on Murphy's Law observes that, in fact, Murphy was an Optimist.
Nicoll nomenclature seems to include some inside humor. A more
straight-forward nomenclature works better for me. So a contraction of
the title of _The Man Who Lived Backwards and Other Stories_ (Hall) 
is used for my own review.
