I really like the Ishmael Wong character in the Solar Clipper series by Nathan Lowell. But I'm trying to listen to South Coast for the second time. I like Nathan Lowell as the reader of his own works. I've started South Coast more than once and so far the thing I like best about it is the mention of the Blessing of the Fleet. In Bayou la Batre they had the blessing of the fleet for the shrimp boats when I worked at Alba. I guess they still do, but I don't know. Just the mention of the blessing of the fleet was nice. Maybe the story will pick up but I'm on episode 13 so maybe not. I'm a little worried that Ishmael Wong is going to veer into the shaman territory.
