Wilson Bay

Pharaoh Publishing USA has just released Wilson Bay: Tales From an Eskimo Village, the latest book by my dad, Conley Stone McAnally. You can get it on Amazon, or better yet here, where I'll make more money. :)

From the blurb on the back of the book:

“What follows is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. However, I did change names, dates, facts, and major details a little, and any resemblance to anyone now living or dead is coincidental.” 

The author of TALES FROM HOMER takes us on a year-long odyssey to a remote region of Alaska, where he chronicles his experiences as a “gussick” among the Eskimos. Stories range from hilarious misadventures (getting stuck in tundra mud, losing a friend off the back of a snowmobile, eating frozen raw eggs) to the mysterious (exploring a ghost ship, seeking a Shaman, hunting “little people”) to serious reflections (a young girl’s funeral, a priest’s doubts, the neglect of a child). WILSON BAY is a comical, heartfelt, and unflinching portrait of life in rural Alaska - one where the line of fact and fiction is often blurred.

This is the third book of fiction Pharaoh has released; we have one other, Manifesto: Universal Tabletop Roleplaying Game under the Nerd Glows On gaming imprint. In November we'll wrap up the 2013 production season with a collection of lyrics and drawings from my old buddy and bandmate William Chaffin.
