In an 1838 book Edgar Allan Poe told the story of four men lost at sea. In order to survive they killed and ate the cabin boy, an unfortunate soul by the name of Richard Parker. Forty years later, in a real life situation, four men did find themselves adrift in a boat and to survive they had to kill and eat the cabin boy whose name also happened to be Richard Parker.
Was it simply coincidence? Or something darker?
