Horsing Around in Politics By Richard Grayson
Paperback: $7.99

(1 Ratings)
In these alternatingly hilarious and earnest memoirs, Richard Grayson recounts moments on the campaign trail and the political barricades. There are reports from the police riot of the 1968... More > Democratic National Convention in Chicago; scenes from the New York headquarters of the October 1969 Moratorium; accounts of the first Earth Day and a now-historic 1970 "Women's Lib" action in New York. Grayson also reports on: running for the Davie, Fla., Town Council on a platform of giving horses the right to vote; creating a political scandal involving Florida lawmakers in "Legislators in Love," and the wacky press coverage of Grayson's joke candidacy for President in 1984, when he famously picked as his running mate the actress Jane Wyman, because of "her experience in dumping Ronald Reagan."< Less
Fort Caroline, the Search for America's Lost Heritage By Richard Thornton
Paperback: $77.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book is the most comprehensive study of the 16th century history of the South Atlantic Coast, ever published. The project began in early 2007 as an effort by a small group of Native American... More > researchers to obtain a more accurate history of the South Atlantic Coast's indigenous peoples. It ended up in 2014, turning the history books upside down. The Spanish built at least 10 forts on the South Atlantic Coast in the 1560s and 1570s. The first governor of Florida, Pedro Menendez, wrote the King of Spain that the original location of St. Augustine was at 31 degrees latitude. That's St. Andrews Sound, GA. St. Augustine was moved to its current location the next year because of the large number of hostile Natives in Georgia. In 1564, French colonists probably did not build Fort Caroline on the St. Johns River in Florida, but in Georgia. There was a large French fort on an island near present day Knoxville, TN several decades before the English arrived. The rest is history.< Less

Diary of a Congressional Candidate By Richard Grayson
eBook (PDF): $0.00
(1 Ratings)
"A witty campaign diary by a wannabe Congressman far too clever to ever be elected. In the spring of 2004, Grayson announced his bid to unseat the firmly entrenched Republican incumbent in... More > Florida’s fourth Congressional district. Grayson’s long-shot run was made even longer by a number of factors. Grayson chronicled his efforts as a “mock-challenger” in a series of postings on McSweeney’s Internet Tendency website, and here he collects these postings in a slim, delectable volume. The author’s wry deadpan punctuates almost every entry. He benefits as much from his own droll intelligence as from the fact that American politics seem to have devolved into a theatre of the absurd; the critique of election politics that his run represents is as hilarious as it is completely legitimate. Funny and devastatingly incisive." - Kirkus Discoveries< Less

Richard Grayson has been keeping a daily diary compulsively since the summer of 1969, when he was an 18-year-old agoraphobic about to venture out into the world – or at least the world around... More > him in Brooklyn. His diary, approximately 600 words a day without missing a day since August 1, 1969, now totals over 9 million words, rivaling the longest diaries ever written.
