Other works by Dale Pendell:
The Great Bay: Chronicles of the Collapse has received a Best Science Fiction award from the 2010 Green Book Festival for its powerful fictional vision of a fast-approaching future in which sea levels rise and a decimated population must find new ways to live. This book is available in hardcover and eBook forms online here, as well as bookstores worldwide.
In part a nonfiction discussion of the Burning Man festival, in part a poetic romp through Nevadaâ€™s Black Rock desert, Inspired Madness is both an irreverent introduction for those curious about the notorious event and an exhilarating reminiscence for veteran “burners.” Loosely structured around a week at Burning Man, the book combines a history of the festival with personal stories and social commentary, juxtaposing images and stories to capture a sense of the wild and unpredictable nature of life on the Playa.
