"If you haven’t had the pleasure of a real, rib-tickling, falling-in-the-aisles laugh in a while, then it’s high time you get yourself a copy of Ray Pace’s Bearstone Blackie, Detective! The world of fairy tales and nursery rhymes you once knew and cherished is now wobbling on a new, lopsided axis when viewed through the cockeyed lens of Bearstone Blackie, the world’s first Black Bear detective. You may think you know humor and comic hilarity, but you ain’t heard/seen/read nothin’ till you’ve rubbed your funny bone on this clever masterpiece of wit and humorous wisdom, literally dripping with adult-strength bon mot and badinage."
D.F. Dempster, reviewer
Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn visited Hawaii on their way to China in early 1941. Did a prize Marlin and a hunt for Bighorn sheep on the Big Island lead to a literary classic and the Nobel Prize? One of Hawaii's leading writers, Ray Pace takes the reader on an unforgettable journey into the possibilities.
Les Hemingway was an accomplished writer and adventurer who happened to be standing in the shadow cast by one of the English language's all-time great authors, his brother Ernest.
"There was a sense of both the magic and the tragic involved with the Hemingway name; it could open doors and it could also be a big pain. Here was my friend who had a career most writers would die for. He had written a best-selling book, had reported for major dailies, had freelanced for a number of magazines and lived in a beautiful place in South Florida and it wasn’t enough for the critics and maybe naggingly never enough for him because he wasn’t Nobel Prize winner Ernest Hemingway."
