Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
On an unnamed island, a dayboat runs aground, forcing its group of shaken travelers to wade ashore. There they encounter a reclusive art historian and his assistant. But is this meeting truly an accident? If so, why does one of the castaways appear to know the reclusive scholar--and why is the latter so afraid of him? And who is the stranger who moves among them, as omnipresent as a little god, as haunted as a fleeing murderer, observing their actions with longing, dread, and sinister amusement?
Genre: Ghost stories.
