The Lobster Chronicles: Life on a Very Small Island, by Linda Greenlaw. Hyperion. 238 pages. $22.95. Linda Greenlaw's first book, The Hungry Ocean, received terrific reviews for the intensity with which the author recounted her experience as the only female swordfisherman on the Grand Banks. Greenlaw has since moved back home, to tiny Isle Au Haut in Maine's Penobscot Bay, to try her hand at lobstering. The Lobster Chronicles is Greenlaw's memoir of one particularly difficult season waiting for the hideous-looking but delectable crustaceans to swim into her traps.

Linda Greenlaw is making stuff up. The fisherman-turned-lobsterman-turned writer has turned another page, making the transition from nonfiction to fiction in her latest book. As a fisherman, Greenlaw knows a lot about fibs. She has heard plenty and probably told a few. But her first three books and a cookbook written with her mother stuck to the facts. With Slipknot (Hyperion, $24.95), she removes herself from the story in favor of Jane Bunker, an ex-police detective who flees the crime of Miami for the coastal tranquillity of Green Haven, Maine.

ISLE AU HAUT, Me. -- It's 10:32 and the moon is full. Out on the town-hall dance floor, grizzled lobstermen and their partners are howling the words to a famous party song. "Play that funky music, white boy!" the mass of gyrating plaid flannel and gray sweat shirts shouts as the band on stage delivers. In the middle of this Down-East-meets-Soul-Train gathering is the host, guest of honor and the tiny island's most famous resident, Linda Greenlaw. She's dancing her heart out, taking on all comers.

PORTLAND, Maine - Take the fibs out of fishing and there's nothing left. But write it all down, and you may have a best-seller. After telling readers about her life at sea as skipper, as a swordfishing captain and about living on a speck of granite surrounded by a sea of lobster traps, Linda Greenlaw has decided that what we really need to know about her nautical life is that All Fishermen Are Liars. Which means, of course, that Linda Greenlaw is a liar, a fact gleefully played up by the publisher of her three books and spread around by her friends here at the Dry Dock Restaurant and Tavern on the city's waterfront.

Goalie Duane Derksen quickly sensed it after he rejoined the Skipjacks. His old teammates seemed to have more confidence in him."They said they noticed the difference in my game," Derksen said. "They felt I was a lot better."More than two months of playing regularly in the low minors, with the Hampton Roads Admirals of the East Coast Hockey League, brought Derksen's game back to life.He played two games with the Skipjacks last weekend, picking up a win and a loss, and probably will start one of the two coming games against the Hamilton Canucks, tonight's or Sunday night's.
