A road trip to nowhere, to find something never quite lost.
The hub of life in the islands is the local rum shop and though living in the Windward Islands in the Caribbean might be a little different than other places, maybe move at a slower place, the problems of life are pretty much the same as anywhere else. Still, it's a different kind of world. This is a collection of stories and poems about that world, with art by Dagny.
This edition includes the short story THE SEA SHALL CLAIM THEM
More than once he got trapped by his own success and he found that following your dreams isn’t as easy as you’d like—even when you do chase them, dreams can be tricky things. Harper John wrote a song about him and his quest, and I loved it (and recorded it) and then we wrote this story and got Tom to take the pictures. So it’s fiction, about a real person and a very real dream.
Martin’s good friend needs his help finding a business partner who has disappeared in Venezuela. He leaves Ugly Bill to handle loading cargo in Guyana and heads down there, but all he can find is the man’s sailboat — and it’s burning on a Venezuelan beach.
The missing man’s wife, vacationing in Margarita, doesn’t seem concerned about him, but a mysterious woman and an ex British spy seem very interested in finding the man. But why?
Martin needs some answers, and it would be best if he found them before Ugly Bill gets too tired of him playing detective.
Leaving Ugly Bill in charge of their freighter in Trinidad, he heads to Cumana to prove Tim’s innocence. Met at the airport by a mysterious and gorgeous woman lawyer willing to pay him to leave the country without stirring things up, he learns that there are forces at work who want Tim convicted. The local police are content with their suspect and the local boss of organized crime in Cumana has an abiding and sinister interest in stalling the investigation. None of them are pleased with Martin poking around and when someone brutally murders his brother’s girlfriend right after Martin meets her, he becomes a suspect in her death.
A vicious gringo, called Highball, has decided that Martin knows where some missing drugs are hidden and he will stop at nothing to get them.
It’s a good thing Ugly Bill is on his way to help.
With the help of friends, she begins a project, creating what she doesn’t have. But overwhelming success brings its own problems and her world spins out of control in ways she could never have imagined possible.
