But when he tries to get rid of it, the screams begin. Will Capt. Braddock become the next victim of gruesome intrigue surrounding the screaming skull?

The Upper Berth
A business traveler named Brisbane recalls securing a haunted berth on a steamship bound for Liverpool.  During the first night of the voyage, his roommate runs screaming out of the cabin and throws himself overboard.  Brisbane soon learns that three other men who booked Room 105 have killed themselves in the same fashion, and he recruits the ship’s captain to help investigate matters that strike him as altogether ‘supernatural.’
