jack Estes is the publisher of this small press. It's been active since 1996, focusing mostly on poetry and fiction. In 2006, two new imprints were added: Caravel Mystery Books and Aequitas Books. Caravel is used primarily for mysteries (obviously) and Aequitas for non-fiction with a sociological or philosophical theme. That same year, a small press from Port Townsend, Washington, was resurrected and started working with Pleasure Boat Studio, as a division. This press, Empty Bowl, focuses on poetry and some prose with strong eco-consciousness. Pleasure Boat Studio is located in New York City, having moved from Bainbridge Island, Washington, in 2002.

Listening to the Rhino: Violence and Healing in a Scientific Age
by Janet Dallet
This book uses stories, myths and case studies to show something deep in the psyche that resembles a large, primordial animal, whose support of human agendas is not entirely reliable. This irrational part of ourselves finds expression in a multitude of contradictory ways. It is responsible for the miraculous healing of body and soul as well as perpetuating horrifying forms of violence.
