Eight Dogs Named Jack
Series/Author: Joe
$6.95

Hardcover Eight Dogs Named Jack: And 14 Other Stories from the Detroit Streets and Michigan Wilderness by Joe Borri In the 60s and 70s, the northeast corner of Detroit was home to so many policemen or cops the area was nicknamed Copper Corner. The community was saturated with first generation-Americans of Italian descent. It's through this setting that the fictional stories within Eight Dogs Named Jack emerge. The stories are a mixture of pulp, noir, humor and drama, set against the backdrop of Detroit s East Side, their characters often roaming to northern Michigan and Canada. Up North, the street smarts the characters possess are tested against the mystical forces present in nature. The stories are crafted from the perspective of Joe Borri, the son of a Detroit cop, who married a girl whose father had a strong dislike for Detroit cops. His life in the two families inspired many of these yarns. Eight Dogs Named Jack, and Fourteen Other Stories From the Detroit Streets and Michigan Wilderness, is an entertaining collection of tales where characters like Honest John, Tony the Hatchet, Sausages Burmanzini, Hopper, and other street gods call home.

Series/Author: Mark
$6.45

Paperback - Like New Mark Wolfgang Bedderhoff Dead Michigan Mystery Michigan State Police Trooper Alice Louise Dubose hates the Upper Peninsula. It's her first time there, she hasn't even reached her new MSP post yet, and already the U.P. has tried to kill her. Twice. Now, lost in the pitch-black wilderness after 10 hours on the road with a hangover and no GPS or cell phone signal, she is redirected to the isolated, dead-end village of Deathe. Nyleen Bedderhoff, a teacher at tiny Cavendish Junior College, has been electrocuted by a clever killer. The most likely suspect would be Ron Blank, the campus electrician, who coincidentally becomes Alice Louise's dour host at the infamous \"Cathy Cadaver's\" decrepit old mansion in the woods-- and her possible ally. Maybe. It's Homecoming Week, and all of Deathe's prodigal sons and daughters have come home to overrun the town and celebrate with beer, bands, parades, one giant fuzzy orange, brown and purple Squabbling Timber Doodle.... and maybe even a football game. There's also a killer on the loose. Fortunately, Alice Louise is an Amazon state trooper with a gun... but no backup... and maybe a touch of the flu.... “Yoopernatural Mysteries” take place in the haunted Upper Peninsula village of Deathe, Michigan, where the people are odd, the dead are restless, and the supernatural is just another day in the life of Deathe.

Timber Town Tales
Series/Author: Cliff
$6.50

Paperback - Great Timber Town Tales: Stories and Images of Early Cadillac, Michigan (1871 to 1946) by Cliff Sjogren \"Timber Town Tales\" is a gathering of interesting snippets from a number of mostly Pre-World War II sources consisting of books, newspapers, photographs, and the author's personal life experiences. The title was carefully chosen. Because most of the story lines were taken from secondary sources where features described in two or more accounts of a happening were occasionally though rarely in conflict with each other, one might find it inappropriate to include the term \"history\" in the title. The reader will, however, gain a sense of the Cadillac area culture as well as a general picture of the remarkable number and the high quality of accomplishments during its first 75 years of existence. A wilderness was tamed and an industrial powerhouse emerged that attracted the attention of a nation. All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Wexford County Historical Society Museum. Learn More
