Monday 5 July 2010: Dale Pendell/Randy McKean
On 5 July I talked with Nevada County poet, editor, ethnopharmacologist and now novelist Dale Pendell about his new novel The Great Bay (North Atlantic). I had previously talked with Dale about his books Pharmako/Poeia, Pharmako/Dynamis and Pharmako/Gnosis (24 May 2006) ( all originally published by Mercury House, now available from North Atlantic) and Walking with Nobby (18 February 2008) (Mercury House).

I then talked with Nevada County composer, saxophonist and potential novelist Randy McKean about the fictional musician Lemuel Crook, bits of whose words and music Randy has been letting slip out in various local locales over the last few years.

You could call this the Blossoming Novelists Program.
