Tim Dorsey, the creator of the Serge Storms series, has for the first time collected a variety of his newspaper and magazine articles from over the last 30 years. These 25 pieces represent all periods of his writing career, starting with early humor columns for his college paper, through freelance pieces that showed early sparks of "Serge," including covering a Michael Jackson concert and a New Orleans World's Fair in the mid-80s. Then into 90s (with reports on roller hockey and landmark obscenity law), and finally the post-"Florida Roadkill" years, which prompted publications to request first-person accounts of his book tours, research travels and almost anything else they could think of that followed Serge's swath of destruction. More than 100 pages with eight photographs.

About the Author

Tim Dorsey was born in Indiana, moved to Florida at the age of 1, and grew up in a small town about an hour north of Miami called Riviera Beach. He graduated from Auburn University in 1983. While at Auburn, he was editor of the student newspaper, The Plainsman. From 1983 to 1987, he was a police and courts reporter for The Alabama Journal, the now-defunct evening newspaper in Montgomery. He joined The Tampa Tribune in 1987 as a general assignment reporter. He also worked as a political reporter in the Tribune’s Tallahassee bureau and a copy desk editor. From 1994 to 1999, he was the paper’s night metro editor. He left the Trib in August 1999 to write full time.

Tim has since published fifteen novels in several languages: Florida Roadkill, Hammerhead Ranch Motel, Orange Crush, Triggerfish Twist, The Stingray Shuffle, Cadillac Beach, Torpedo Juice, The Big Bamboo, Hurricane Punch, Atomic Lobster, Nuclear Jellyfish, Gator A-Go-Go, Electric Barracuda, When Elves Attack and Pineapple Grenade. He lives in Tampa with his family.
