Welcome to Escallonia Press

Welcome to Escallonia Press, Marin County’s premier publisher of fine literature with an emphasis on flower power and the fabulous decade of the 60s. We will feed your head, as the doormouse said.

While kudos from literary experts (mainly British) for San Fran ‘60s and More San Fran ‘60s are piling up in the “Reviews” section, we present our latest offering: Choicest Rock Band Names as Tiny Poems. If less is more, this is the most in poetry and engaging reading. There are only a few hundred chosen by editor M.W. Jacobs from ten thousands collected over decades throughout the English-speaking world. The selections are fun, weird, and richly resonant, and they demonstrate that these choicest of rock band names are a form of anonymous folk poetry like graffiti, bumper stickers, and advertising catch phrases. Read a more detailed description under “Titles” and then check out an abridged version for yourself under “Read a Section.”

    Dear Mark Jacobs, long lost best man friend,
    Though Jerelynn and I are happy to have discovered only last week that you’re still alive, we are not happy with your distorted view of what the Haight-Ashbury movement and consciousness was all about and what we ourselves were.
    We have not seen or read your “San Fran ’60s” book but have read some preview pages on the internet. I invite you to read my published contemporary San Francisco novel “Bogart for President” to enlighten yourself about the current reality of the district.
    Re “The Big Secret” of your book character Bernie, it had to do with what Oliver Stone subsequently revealed in his film “JFK”. My book “Bogart..” deals with it and Vietnam War Era dissenter Daniel Ellsberg personally purchased a copy from me and stated that my book makes more sense on the matter than most every other author’s interpretation of the November 22nd, 1963 event.
