Ship of the Damned Author:James F. David On October 28, 1943 a US Navy ship was successfully teleported with disastrous effects on its crew. Some of its men died, others developed rare diseases. Most horrifying of all, some became fused to the metal, their arms and legs protruding from the bulkhead. Over fifty years later, Dr. Wes Martin, a psychologist and Elizabeth, a social worker... more », are working to help seven random individuals who are having the same reoccurring dream. The dream involves a large Navy ship in a vast desert. There are soldiers trapped inside the bulkheads and slowly, by depriving them of REM sleep, the dream is killing the dreamers. What the dreamers do not realize is that another vessel--a modern fleet fit with nuclear warheads, has recently vanished in a green-grey mist over the North Atlantic. And only Elizabeth, by entering the dream, can prevent its firepower from stopping humanity forever.« less
Though not advertised as a sequel, "Ship of the Damned" is pretty much a sequel to "Fragments" with some of the same characters and tech.
These, combined with the historic tale(??) of the Philadelphia experiment make for an enjoyable read and intrigueing story.
I was particularly pleased to meet Ralph again. He is one of my favorite characters of all time! Seldom does an author develope a character... especially a "special" character... so well. I almost feel he is a personal friend of mine.
This is a really good read with an interesting plot, good characters, solid writing, and plenty of action.
