This sea story isn't another high-stakes thriller, the likes of which flood the magazine aisle at the local supermarket. It is instead, that side of the fleet seen only by the men who man the grey ghosts of the US Navy--the story of the long, hot, sometimes dangerous, and always critical watches in a ship's engine room; the hole snipes, in particular, and the lifer corps in general, regardless of their rating. This is a story of that lifer corps that makes the navy work and about the culture that it breeds and the rare breed that rules that culture. Not all career navy men resemble some of the characters in this story, but there is not one fleet sailor, career or not, that does not remember one. This story is for them.

In The Grey Ghost: New York City Photographs, Dan Winters turns his eye to New York City, collecting over 100 black-and-white images he created there in the years after moving to New York from California in 1987 at the age of 25. A highly personal collection, The Grey Ghost reveals an artist finding his voice, discovering "that elusive method that informs the manner in which we perceive and interpret our surroundings." In these photographs-- featuring icons of New York City such as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building, as well as everyday moments captured on the street--we find Winters presenting us with the seemingly ordinary and commonplace in a way that captivates us and makes us look much more closely. As Winters writes, New York "has acted as a proving ground and a right of passage for countless photographers," beginning with Alfred Stieglitz and Paul Strand. For those interested in street photography, New York City, black-and-white imagery, or the earlier work of one of today's most compelling photographers, The Grey Ghost is a must-have addition to your photobook collection.

But the masked marauder known as the Gray Ghost is back -- running the river and causing mischief... or is he?

Plus, there's a new boy in town named Simon Bleaker who seems just as rotten and wily as Stoner's Boy ever was.
