Galusha the Magnificent

by Joseph Crosby Lincoln

A wonderful story of an "absent-minded professor" archeologist, and the sensible landlady who take him in hand. Although considered to be "not quite right in the head" by the other characters, Galusha is a type we are more familiar with these days, and he would be admired today as a geek extraordinaire. An absolutely delightful book; funny and clever, but also a sweet, gently romantic tale.

Cy Whittaker's Place

by Joseph Crosby Lincoln

A successful sea captain retires to his childhood home, hoping to re-capture the air of warmth and charm he's nostalgic for. But instead of a peaceful retirement, he sets the local political system on its ear, gets the town gossips working overtime, and finds out it takes more than the interior decoration to make a house a home. An interesting and enjoyable read.

The Woman-Haters

by Joseph Crosby Lincoln

An "Odd Couple" story of a misogynistic lighthouse keeper who teams up with a mysterious stranger who seems to be as anti-woman as himself.
Their peaceful, men-only existence is soon disrupted by the tenants of a nearby cottage. Funny, charming, and sweet, if a little predictable.

Cape Cod Stories

by Joseph Crosby Lincoln

Hilarious tales of two old salts, their "slicker" business partner, and their adventures running a summer hotel on Cape Cod. Light, enjoyable fare.
