Anniston, AL, October 24, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Ferdinand The Fisherman: A New Tale of Moby Dick by D. H. Faulkner. The author's most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the epic fantasy and fiction category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/ferdinandthefisherman was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
This story came to the author from two sources while he was working in the South Pacific in 1990: the first was the reverence that the Hawaiian people hold for the sea creatures, especially whales, and the second was a Portuguese fellow named Ferdinand that enjoyed the author’s poetry. The two came together in a dream state early one morning, and Moby Dick, the most famous of all whales in literature, took his rightful place as the other main character.
But in this story, Moby Dick is “A gentle creature, friend of man, but shy of those who live on land.” Both Moby Dick and Ferdinand each suffer tragedies, Moby Dick at the hand of Cap’n Ahab, and Ferdinand to a shipwreck during a storm, but both emerge victorious in the most wonderful way.
25 pages in length, Ferdinand The Fisherman: A New Tale of Moby Dick is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the epic fantasy and fiction category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Ferdinand The Fisherman meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $12.95.
Additionally, Ferdinand The Fisherman can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore.

About the author:
As a Technical writer and industrial instructor, D. H. Faulkner always turned to poetry as an escape from the dry, mundane world of technical jargon that consumed his working life. He is from New England near the ocean, and his working career afforded him the chance to travel a great deal, always writing letters to his children in rhyme, and other pieces of a romantic nature or cynical observations on current events. But Ferdinand was a story born out of a profound respect for the people of Hawaii and their reverence for the world around them. Ferdinand the Fisherman is truly a whale story for the 21st century, when these magnificent creatures are finally appreciated for what and who they are.
