Chronicles of the Strange and Uncanny in Florida
Greg Jenkins
Open these hidden files to explore Florida’s darker avenues for evidence of the extraordinary and the fantastic. Look beyond the confines of everyday life to discover the truly unusual. You will encounter the Skunk Ape, El Chupacabra, the Pig Man of Deerfield Beach, the Spanish-Moss Monster of Red Reef Park, a phantom clown, and, of course, some blood-seeking vampyres. Watch out for UFOs, extraterrestrials, and other strange aerial phenomena. From Florida’s many waters come St. Augustine’s Giant Octopus; the Everglades Water Serpent; the Three-Toed Beast of Clearwater Beach; the Everglades Gatorman; Pinky, Florida’s very own dinosaur; as well as various and sundry sea serpents. Greg Jenkins, author of the three-volume series Florida’s Ghostly Legends and Haunted Folklore, thoroughly researches his books by visiting locales and interviewing eyewitnesses. Since an early age, Greg has had a profound interest in the supernatural and fringe science, and after a personal experience with the unknown in 1987, he began his journey into the realms of parapsychology and all things mysterious. Greg is a folklorist and collector of oral traditions and urban legends, and is an associate member of England’s Society for Psychical Research.

Visiting Small-Town Florida
Third Edition Bruce Hunt
A guide to 75 of Florida’s most interesting small towns. This completely revised and updated new edition of a popular guide leads you to Florida’s most charming and historic little towns, places with names like Bagdad, Sopchoppy, Ozello, Yeehaw Junction, Ochopee, and Two Egg. It’s a guidebook, a travelogue, and a sort of a history book all rolled into one. Readers like the author’s easygoing chat-on-the-porch style and appreciate his criteria for “small town”: a population of 10,000 or less (with a few notable and important exceptions, like Fernandina Beach); remoteness and distinctness from large metropolitan areas; a compelling story in the town’s history; and, importantly, no speed traps. He also has a soft spot for local-cuisine Mom-and-Pop diners and hole-in-the-wall bar and grills. You won’t go hungry visiting Florida’s best small towns. And you’ll find a relaxed and old-style way of life that will keep you visiting more and more of these quaint places. Bruce Hunt, a native Floridian author-photographer-illustrator living in Tampa, has researched Florida’s small towns for nearly two decades. He has authored eight books on Florida travel and history. He has also written and photographed numerous articles for newspapers and magazines, and spent five years as a regular feature writer and photographer for DuPont Registry Tampa Bay magazine. His work has also appeared in The Tampa Tribune and St. Petersburg Times. He has written for many magazines, including Backpacker, Rock & Ice, Skydiving, and Celebrity Car. $14.95 • Softcover • ISBN 978-1-56164-488-9 March • 6 x 9 • 240 pages • 110 b&w photos

Hillsborough River Guidebook
Kevin M. McCarthy
Third in the Rivers of Florida series, this essential guidebook is both a history of and guide to the river that begins in the Green Swamp and runs through downtown Tampa to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way the Hillsborough River State Park offers trails along and over the river as well as a restored fort from the Second Seminole War. The Hillsborough River is not long, but it has played an important role in Florida commerce and history. Both the Green Swamp, a watery area consisting of about nine hundred square miles in the middle of the state between Tampa and Orlando, and the Hillsborough River are of vital importance to the water needs of the urban areas of Tampa and St. Petersburg. Like the other guidebooks in this river series, this book takes you along the river by boat from the source to the outlet, telling stories of the history and pointing out wildlife along the way. You will learn that in 1539 Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto and his army probably went through what is today Hillsborough River State Park on their way north in their search for gold. For the less adventurous the book also serves as a guide to a trip along the length of the river, as much as possible, by land for those in a car, on a bike, on foot, or even on a horse. You will even learn the Native American name for the river, locksa apopka, “a place for eating acorns,” which is a lot more colorful than the English name, which honored a British official who never came within two thousand miles of it. See page 11 for St. Johns River Guidebook and Suwannee River Guidebook, also in this series. Kevin M. McCarthy is a professor emeritus, and Distinguished Alumni Professor, of English and Florida Studies at the University of Florida in Gainesville, where he taught for 33 years. He has written seventeen other books for Pineapple Press. $14.95 • Softcover • ISBN 978-1-56164-487-2 February • 6 x 9 • 160 pages • b&w photos

Adventures in Nowhere
John Ames
A boy in 1950s Florida wrestles with adult problems and enjoys the last days of his boyhood in a place called Nowhere. Before Disney and far from the palm-lined Florida beaches, ten-year-old Danny Ryan is transplanted to a tiny community on the hyacinth-choked Hillsborough River outside Tampa, a place his older sister calls Nowhere. But for Danny and his best friend, the irrepressible Alfred Bagley, whose fondest desire is to grow up to be a junk dealer, Nowhere is where adventures lurk and lure them into more trouble than they can handle. More trouble is not what Danny needs as he copes with a family that includes a father sinking into schizophrenia; two sisters, one very ill and the other ready to run away with a shady boyfriend; and a mother trying her best to hold it all together. Adventures in Nowhere paints a compelling, imaginative, and often humorous vision of a time, a place, and a way of growing up, allowing a reader to live for a while in the mind of a remarkably thoughtful and intense boy caught at the final edge of childhood. “ ‘I couldn’t put this book down’ is an over-used phrase, but for Adventures in Nowhere it is true. John Ames has captured a boy’s life in a way that anyone can identify with.”—J. T. Glisson, author of The Creek “John Ames has written a superb coming-of-age novel in the tradition of J. D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye and Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. With the Hillsborough River as his trusted companion, the imaginative Danny plunges into adventures, some life-threatening, that force him to change, creating a narrative that is dark and delightful at the same time.”—Bill Maxwell, syndicated St. Petersburg Times correspondent, author of Maximum Insight John Ames was a Ford Fellow at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. He taught English and film for thirty years at Santa Fe College. He has produced and acted in numerous short films and videos, and for ten years he reviewed movies for PBS radio station WUFT. He coauthored Second Serve: The Renée Richards Story (Stein and Day, 1983) and its sequel No Way Renée: The Second Half of My Notorious Life (Simon & Schuster, 2007), and Speaking of Florida (University Presses of Florida, 1993). $18.95 • Hardcover • ISBN 978-1-56164-484-1 January • 6 x 9 • 232 pages

Hemingway’s Cats
Carlene F. Brennen Foreword by Hilary Hemingway Now in paperback
Ernest Hemingway adopted stray cats in every city where he lived. He once wrote in a letter from his home in Cuba, where he had 57 cats: “One cat just leads to another. . . . The place is so damned big it doesn’t really seem as though there were many cats until you see them all moving like a mass migration at feeding time.” Meet a kindler, gentler Hemingway than the macho character he himself helped to create. Meet Hemingway the cat lover and devoted master of many cats (and a few dogs) throughout his life. He called the cats “purr factories” and “love sponges” that soaked up love and in return gave comfort and companionship. His cats kept him company while he wrote and helped him cope with failing relationships and his failing health. When he took his life on July 2, 1961, his cat Big Boy Peterson was by his side. “An excellent book that will contribute to further understanding of a complex man.” —The Hemingway Review “A fascinating look into the life and loves of one of America’s most beloved writers.” — Cat Fancy magazine Carlene Brennen, long a newspaper editor and publisher in southwest Florida, has spent over thirty years researching Hemingway’s life in Key West, Bimini, and Cuba. She co-wrote with Hilary Hemingway Hemingway in Cuba and worked on the award-winning documentary film by the same name. $14.95 • Softcover • ISBN 978-1-56164-489-6 April • 6 x 9 • 200 pages • 40 b&w photos Also of interest: My Brother, Ernest Hemingway, page 15 Hemingway’s Key West, page 15 Hemingway’s Cats in hardcover, page 15
