First published in 1970, nine years after Hemingway's death, this is the story of an artist and adventurer—a man much like Hemingway himself. Beginning in the 1930s, Islands in the Stream follows the fortunes of Thomas Hudson, from his experiences as a painter on the Gulf Stream island of Bimini through his antisubmarine activities off the coast of Cuba during World War II. Hemingway is at his mature best in this beguiling tale.

Behind Islands in the Stream Hemingway, Cuba, the FBI and the crook factory …is the first book to completely reveal the dark and ultimately tragic back story of Ernest Hemingway and the FBI. Hemingway lived in Cuba for 20-plus years; 1939-1940 to 1960. After the Spanish Civil War, thousands of Spanish Falange (Spanish fascists) had immigrated to Cuba. Many were pro-Nazi and were considered a threat to Cuba and to the United States. With the blessing of the United States Embassy in Havana, Hemingway assembled an irregular organization to spy on the Falange. He called it “the crook factory.” The FBI became enraged that Hemingway was poaching on its territory. Internal documents indicate the FBI tried to discredit and ridicule Hemingway and accused him of being a member of “Communist Front Organizations.” Eventually the crook factory was disbanded and some became crew members on his yacht, the Pilar, which he used to hunt Nazi submarines in the Caribbean. Those adventures became the final segment of his novel “Islands in the Stream,” published in 1970. The FBI never forgave or forgot Hemingway. Their surveillance continued. And continued. And it may have contributed substantially to his suicide, in mid-1961. Hemingway biographer Jeffrey Meyers once wrote: “The FBI kept watch on him for the rest of his life.”

In a near-future new age of corporate control, hacker mercenaries, and electronic terrorism, a public relations executive on the rise finds herself caught in the violent epicenter of a data war Two decades into the twenty-first century, the world’s nations are becoming irrelevant. Corporations are the true global powers, with information the most valuable currency, while the smaller island nations have become sanctuaries for data pirates and terrorists. A globe-trotting PR executive for the large corporate economic democracy Rizome Industries Group, Laura Webster is present when a foreign representative is assassinated on Rizome soil during a conference for offshore data havens. Dispatched immediately on an international mission of diplomacy, Laura hopes she can make a difference in a volatile, unsteady world, but instead finds herself trapped on the front lines of rapidly escalating third-world hostilities and caught up in an inescapable net of conspiracy, terrorism, post-millennial voodoo, and electronic warfare. During the 1980s, science fiction luminary Bruce Sterling envisioned the future . . . and hit it almost dead-on. The author who, along with William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and Rudy Rucker, helped create and define the cyberpunk subgenre imagines a world of tomorrow in Islands in the Net that bears a striking—and disturbing—resemblance to our present-day information-age reality. Nominated for the Hugo and Locus Awards and winner of the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, Sterling’s extraordinary novel is a gripping, eye-opening, and remarkably prescient science fiction classic.

Published posthumously in 1970, nine years after Hemingway’s suicide in 1961, Islands in the Stream is a novel of extraordinary depth and scope. Originally intended to encompass three stories to illustrate different stages in the life of its main characters, the three different parts were compiled into a single story. The story is told in three acts: “Bimini”, “Cuba”, and “At Sea”. The three sections of this book, although all centering on the same main character, vary greatly in tone and emotion. The joy, the grief and the battle to continue are this man's journey and it works, even though the shifts feel abrupt and brutal. Even the joy at the beginning of the book is subsumed in a sense of impending doom. The book is not a "happy book" in any sense, but it is remarkably redemptive.

From two leading historians of Bahamian history comes this groundbreaking work on a unique archipelagic nation. Islanders in the Stream is not only the first comprehensive chronicle of the Bahamian people, it is also the first work of its kind and scale for any Caribbean nation. This comprehensive volume details the full, extraordinary history of all the people who have ever inhabited the islands and explains the evolution of a Bahamian national identity within the framework of neighboring territories in similar circumstances. Divided into three sections, this volume covers the period from aboriginal times to the end of formal slavery in 1838. The first part includes authoritative accounts of Columbus’s first landfall in the New World on San Salvador island, his voyage through the Bahamas, and the ensuing disastrous collision of European and native Arawak cultures. Covering the islands’ initial settlement, the second section ranges from the initial European incursions and the first English settlements through the lawless era of pirate misrule to Britain’s official takeover and development of the colony in the eighteenth century. The third, and largest, section offers a full analysis of Bahamian slave society through the great influx of Empire Loyalists and their slaves at the end of the American Revolution to the purported achievement of full freedom for the slaves in 1838. This work is both a pioneering social history and a richly illustrated narrative modifying previous Eurocentric interpretations of the islands’ early history. Written to appeal to Bahamians as well as all those interested in Caribbean history, Islanders in the Stream looks at the islands and their people in their fullest contexts, constituting not just the most thorough view of Bahamian history to date but a major contribution to Caribbean historiography.
