Seeds of Evil
Fisherman who tells tall tales
Claude Rickson runs charter fishing trips out of Silent Waters. He has relatively few repeat customers because he tends to creep people out with the odd stories he tells. Although many of the stories he tells are somewhat embellished, he knows a great deal more than he lets on.
In particular, he quotes from the memoir of Linda Plassey from time to time, so he clearly has read the book. This does not stop Dr. Zachary Wells from taking the occasional charter trip, however, because Wells finds the trip otherwise relaxes him.
