Tales from the Texas Gang, by Wild Bill Blackolive
January 20, 2010 - [$20. First edition! 1978.] Tales from the Texas Gang by Wild Bill Blackolive, is an amazing, ribald, far-out novel of the wild west, based on our own wild world and a real life gang. Catch a fresh dose of the spirit of Twain, Abbey, Kerouac and Castenada...rolled into one. Like Cormac McCarthy, only more realistic. (Yikes!) Wild...

Attack on Michilimackinac: action packed!
August 20, 2008 - I've really enjoyed exploring Indian heritage the past few years. I could hop right to the punchline for this book, but really there's a lot of background here, so first things first... I've had a strong connection to the Straits area of Michigan for decades, mostly via the backways. A couple years ago I finally went in thr...

Stephen Potter: the hilarious classic "One-upmanship"
March 05, 2006 - [$15] "One-upmanship" is a slim, 175-pg send-up of stuffy British clubbishness and the endless ways that "players" have of foiling and impressing each other. [UPDATE: Out of stock on "Up" but I do have a fine copy of "Gamesmanship," also a great read, with a great section on how to win at not paying for lunch.] Stephen Potter (n...

OYB Anthology! ---Indy action galore
July 16, 2005 - [$15. $5 off $20 retail!] I've been pushing the OYB Anthology on the back-issues page but really it deserves its own attention.

I'll see if I can find an index to th...

Spring Creek Chronicles (Vols. 1 & 2)
January 05, 2005 - [$15] This isn't really a boating book. But then none of my offerings are easy to categorize. (That's the whole point. Reality isn't black'n'white...or a genre or a niche.) The dedication of the book might give you a better idea: the author gives thanks to the Florida Game Wardens: without them busting him and taking away his ...
