 I recently discovered William Clark Russell and was blown away. Best read ever: Marooned: A Sea Tale

Largely forgotten today except by fans of sea stories, W. Clark Russell wrote close to 50 novels of the sea.

I had never heard of Russell until I read the Sherlock Holmes story, "The Five Orange Pips." During the intro to that story Dr. Watson is reading one of Russell's stories during a very stormy London day.
