If you read the About section you will know that ArkivaTropika is one of the SLG Publishing/Art Boutiki brands. What you may or may not know is that SLG Publishing (one of America's coolest comic book publishers) was the original publisher of Jeff Berry's Beach Bum Berry books (The Grog Log, Intoxica, Remixed and more). While Jeff now has a publisher more approrpiate for his content he has graciously allowed us to keep our older Bum books in print, and they are all available from us through Amazon.com as well as several other sites. This reading list is highlighted by the books that we publish, but we have tossed in a few other books that we maybe wished we had published. The below links are all to Amazon listings, which to be honest is the fastest way to get any of these titles.
Beach Bum Berry's Grog Log
The original and the thing that lanuched a thousand ships. This edition of The Grog Log is NOT SPIRAL BOUND. Tiki bar mixology is a lost art--but the Grog Log rescues it.
