Having received huge amounts of complimentary mail from readers, we have now decided to prepare a sequel to this book as a result of the increasing demand of readers.

Ghost of Alkimos
This original book sold more than 11,000 copies. Having been out of print for 20 years, we are now putting finishing touches to an expanded story about this famous Australian landmark.
It is the true story of a liberty ship built in the USA during WW2. Originally named the George M Shriver, it dodged enemy U Boats and as it carried supplies to allied front line ports. Post WW2, it was sold and re purchased by various companies and its name changed numerous times. Finally it was purchased by a Greek freight company and named the 'Alkimos'. In early 1963, whilst being towed to Hong Kong for repairs, she broke away from the tow tug (for the 2nd time) and made her way through treacherous coastal reef breaks and permanently grounded at a lonely part of the West Australian coast just north of Perth. Her lonely arrival at this location had experts baffled for it was suggested at the time, that it would have been near impossible to have navigated her to the spot. With a broken back, sea water quickly flooded the hull confirming her doom. What is more mysterious is that various crew members claimed the ship was haunted by a dangerous and unfriendly ghost who went by the name of 'Henry'. Reported sightings of an eerie ghost dressed in oil skins was often blamed for the many mysterious happenings including strange deaths, injuries and other strange occurances.
The launch date in Australia is set for the 1st November 2003.
