BRAVE NEW PUBLISHING FOR A MULTI-MEDIA WORLD

Non-Fiction:

with another new title exploring the surreal world of climbing

 

For No Good Reason

by Lito Tejada-Flores, 120 pages, softbound, $12.95 plus shipping

 

 

This paperback edition is also available from amazon.com.

 

Lito Tejada-Flores started climbing at the age of thirteen, and never looked back, except to remember the strangest, craziest and most surreal moments of his days on the crags, and wrestle them into true tales, provocative essays, and experimental short fiction. Sometimes pushing the limits of conventional language. Always trying to make climbing writing—and climbing reading—into an adventure worthy of its subject matter. This book collects all of  Lito's best climbing stories: several seminal essays, a few memorable first ascents, and two ambitious short stories.

Climbing to Freedom

by Dick Dorworth, 250 pages, softbound, $15.95 plus shipping

 

 

This paperback edition is also available from amazon.com.

 

Dick Dorworth is a climber's climber, and a writer's writer. He shares the stories of climbs he has made around the world, daring and sometimes desperate, adventures and misadventures that he's lived through and distilled in his intensely personal style. Profiles of important climbers, all personal friends from a lifetime on the crags, essays on the climbing life, and a pair of unusual mountaineering short stories complete this collection of Dick's very best writing on mountains and mountaineering, rocks and rock climbing, and those who have surrendered their lives to this passion for the heights.

Night Driving

a free-form memoir

by Dick Dorworth, 126 pages, softbound, $9.95 plus shipping

 

 

The paperback edition is also available from amazon.com, and additionally as a Kindle edition from amazon, or an iBook from Apple's iBookstore .

 

Night Driving is a high-energy essay, meditation, memoir and rave about long nights on the open road, pedal to the metal across the West, down the length of South America, in many altered states, exploring multiple dimensions of  freedom and the long tunnels of thought and introspection that run in parallel to the long tunnel of headlights on blacktop. First published in the mid-seventies by a wonderful “cult” publication, the Mountain Gazette, Night Driving has been rediscovered and reread by generations of footloose adventurers, vagabonds and brothers and sisters of the endless highway ever since. Well beyond stream-of-consciousness story telling, Night Driving is a free-form classic of self-discovery and exploration, during endless, adventurous, and sleepless nights on the road.
