A global pandemic kills much of mankind in 2021--more than two hundred million die in the U.S. in the first month alone. Dale Pendell's The Great Bay: Chronicles of the Collapse takes us on an unprecidented journey sixteen thousand years into the future of mankind--a future transformed by the warming of the planet and the flooding and climatic changes that results around the world. While Pendell's scope is vast, the imaginative and thought-provoking stories in The Great Bay focus on the lives of people in what was once California, where rising sea levels have formed a great bay in the heart of the state. These stories are not merely a warning--they show how people rediscover the old ways of living and surviving, and the world that emerges is as much utopian as dystopian.
