If it Bleeds...it Leads

Golf writer Hacker is now TV golf broadcaster Hacker with a sweet new gig on a national network. He has to learn the ins and outs of televising golf, and how to deal with the hyper-intense executive producer and director, Ben ‘the Assassin’ Oswald, as they get ready to broadcast the PGA Championship, staged at international developer Conrad Gold’s luxury club in upstate New York.

And then the bodies begin to pile up. First is a fellow announcer on the crew, then the assistant to Oswald in the control room.  So as Hacker trades quips in the booth with Billy Joe ‘the Boz’ Bosworth, he’s gotta figure out who’s killing the network guys, one by one.

A fusion of the gothic novel and Virginia Woolf, this book delights in storytelling. Something mystical looms in Bartlett’s writing, making it a tale just as enchanting as its folklore. 

--Booklife, Publisher's Weekly

The clan chief wants to remove the people living in the Highland glens and straths, replacing them with thousands of black-face Cheviot sheep and a few herders.
The people of the glens, who have lived there peacefully in their crofts and farms for hundreds of years, do not wish to go.

That was the essential conflict of the Highland Clearances, a dark and distressing time in Scottish history.  But in Year of the Sheep, James Y. Bartlett’s sweeping retelling of the Clearances in Sutherland in Scotland’s far North, the conflict is even starker:

 

Both the clan chief and the people fighting back were women.

 

 For Elizabeth Gordon, 19th chief of Clan Sutherland, replacing the people with the far more profitable sheepwalks only made economic sense.

 

But the women of Glencullen were desperate to save their way of life.  Inspired by the village shaman and healer, the white witch known as Mute Meg; organized and encouraged by the schoolteacher Anna Kenton; and led by the ferocious example of the shape-shifting outlaw known as Billy Hanks, they decided to make a stand.

 

Based on actual events, Year of the Sheep is an epic novel that runs from the Battle of Culloden Moor through the chaotic events of the French Revolution in Paris; and from the gilded palaces of London to the rude huts of Glencullen, fated to disappear in the fires that helped extinguish a way of life that had lasted nearly a thousand years.

CaddieWampus-Cover.jpg
Ever wonder what the greatest golfers in the world are really like?

Award-winning golf writer James Y. Bartlett spent most of his distinguished career covering the greats of golf from outside the ropes. But on five occasions, he got up-close and personal carrying the bags of some of golf's greatest names: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Ernie Els, Ben Crenshaw and Corey Pavin.

This special edition e-book from Yeoman House Books tells the stories of those on-course adventures, along with some bonus material on the history and lore of the golf caddie.  Don’t miss the story about Donald Trump who, after arguing with his caddie, made the shot of a lifetime at the AT&T National Pro-Am.

If you enjoy Bartlett's witty and erudite style, be sure to pick up copies of his Hacker Golf Mystery series. There are seven great novels now available, with the newest adventure published in August 2020.

Who let the snakes out?

Inside the Big Dig tunnel beneath the streets of Boston, a roof collapse kills an innocent motorist and suddenly questions are being asked: Was the construction shoddy? Did the unions cut corners? Were Boston’s politicians all paid off to look the other way?

Tom Pyle, owner of the huge construction firm that built the tunnel, knows he’s in trouble. So he hires a rough-and-tumble, no-nonsense manager in Jack Dunne to come in and try to save the company.

The threads Dunne begins to pull all seem to lead right back to Pyle’s own exclusive Cape Cod oceanfront neighborhood, a place called Serpent Point. Living there, in gated luxury, are several who had some kind of role in the Big Dig project: the famous senator gearing up for his own presidential run; a wealthy retired musician and impresario with strange tastes; and the head of one of New England’s most powerful crime families whose main concern is keeping tabs on his own sixteen-year-old daughter. And is Dunne trying to save the company, or take it over for himself?

Author Caleb Clarke (James Y.Bartlett writing under a pseudonym) has created a story for our time, and it’s located on Serpent Point.

Want to play better golf?
Find your inner caddie

Working with members of the Professional Caddies Association of the U.S., longtime golf writer and editor James Y. Bartlett and others compiled two of the most useful golf instructional books ever published.

Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of playing a round of golf with a caddie knows what it is like to have a teammate out on the course...someone who can provide strategic advice, read those tricky putts, put the right club in your hands and help you forget those occasional bad shots to get ready for the next one.

Golf is as much about strategy and thinking one's way around a course as it is making shots. These two books, published by Sellers Publishing and available from major online booksellers, will save strokes, help every golfer negotiate tough conditions and add to every golfer's enjoyment.

These books, published in 2016 and 2017, are somewhat hard to find online.  Check here for an updated list of retailers that carry copies, new and used.
And sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the home page, here, as we will occasionally bundle copies of these books in a sales promotion for other Bartlett books.
