WINNER, Best Science Fiction, 2010 Green Book Festival

Based in scientific reality, Dale Pendell presents a powerful fictional vision of a fast-approaching future in which sea levels rise and a decimated population must find new ways to live. The Great Bay begins in 2021 with a worldwide pandemic followed by the gradual rising of the seas. Pendells vision is all encompassing he describes the rising seas impact on countries and continents around the world. But his imaginative storytelling focuses on California. A great bay forms in Californias Central Valley and expands during a 16,000-year period. As the years pass, and technology seems to regress, even memory of a precollapse world blends into myth. Grizzly bears and other large predators return to the California hills, and civilization reverts to a richly imagined medieval society marked by guilds and pilgrimages, followed even later by hunting and gathering societies.

Pendells focus is on the lives of people struggling with love, wars, and physical survival thousands of years in Californias future. He deftly mixes poetic imagery, news-reporting-style writing, interviews with survivors, and maps documenting the geographic changes. In the end, powerful human values that have been with us for 40,000 years begin to reemerge and remind us that they are desperately neededin the present.
