Winslow Hoffner's Incredible Encounters



Sea Stories / Folkloric Fantasy


For most, Bayfield is a quaint, unassuming harbor town. For some, the  decades-old headlines alleging unexplainable sightings of strange  creatures in the water tell a different story. For a select few, the  truth behind these legends, speculations, and folklore is more than a  mere mystery: There’s magic in the bay. And for local fisherman Mr.  Winslow Hoffner, it’s all just a matter of finding yourself in the wrong  place at the right time... 


"Sometimes you come across something so amazing that it is really hard to put into words that quite encapsulate what you want to say . . . Starting with style, Michael has tons of it to spare. His writing is unique, vivid and engaging. The entire time you get the impression you are either on Winslow’s fishing boat, or listening to Winslow while joining him in a root beer. The writing is witty, funny, and totally a fun ride . . . I can highly recommend Winslow Hoffner’s Incredible Encounters  to anyone who is looking for a great story. Be warned, you are going to be looking for more from this gifted author!" - Bryan Nowak, Author, Blogger.
