Fearsome Creatures of Florida         
Fearsome Creatures of Florida
By John Henry Fleming
ISBN: 978-1-929763-40-5
Price: $14.95
Shipping: $4.00
        
They sinuate through ficus hedges and tunnel under beach towels. They lurk in the mangroves and springs. Some you can smell a mile away. Others you don’t notice until they grab at your ankles. They’re known as Storm Devils and Peat Fairies, Skunk Apes and Were-Panthers, and they’re the wildly imaginative bestiary that populates John Henry Fleming’s Fearsome Creatures of Florida. Fleming offers an eerie portrayal of the parallel lives of modern-day Floridians and the living landscape--at once gorgeous and menacing--that surrounds them. Matched with haunting illustrations by David Hazouri, these tales may forever change your view of the Sunshine State.

This book is now being taught in Florida university English classes.

Fearsome Creatures of Florida is also available as an ebook on Amazon.com for the Kindle.

Text Of Review: John Henry Fleming’s Fearsome Creatures of Florida is required reading for anyone who lives in Florida, has ever lived there, has relatives who live in Florida, ever went to Florida on vacation, has ever flown over Florida on route to somewhere else, has ever dreamed about Florida, ever even once had a fleeting thought about Florida, ever heard Delius’s Florida Suite, or ever read Charles Willeford or John D. MacDonald. Much ingenuity, much wit, much verbal magic — this book is sheer pleasure.
