They’re known as Storm Devils and Peat Fairies, Skunk Apes and Were-Panthers. 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 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 that surrounds them. Matched with haunting illustrations by David Hazouri, these tales may forever change your view of the Sunshine State. Voted one of Top Ten Cryptozoology Books of 2009,

About the Author:

John Henry Fleming is also the author of The Legend of the Barefoot Mailman, a Florida novel. His short stories have appeared in many literary journals, including McSweeneys, The North American Review, Mississippi Review, and Fourteen Hills. He grew up in Atlantis, Florida, and lived in seven other states before returning in 2001 to teach creative writing at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

Review:

John Henry Flemings 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 Deliuss Florida Suite, or ever read Charles Willeford or John D. MacDonald. Much ingenuity, much wit, much verbal magic -- this book is sheer pleasure. --Peter Straub, author of Ghost Story
