Steve Boyett is the author of Ariel and Elegy Beach, the long-awaited sequel to Ariel. As well as having taught writing courses, seminars, and workshops, he has published stories in literary, science fiction, fantasy, and horror anthologies and magazines, as well as publishing essays and comic books. In the early ’90’s his imprint Sneaker Press published chapbooks by the poets Carrie Etter and the late Nancy Lambert. Boyett has also been a martial arts instructor, professional paper marbler, advertising copywriter, proofreader, tyepsetter, writing teacher, and Website designer and editor.

In 2000 Steve took some time off from writing. He learned to play the didgeridoo and began composing and DJing electronic music. As a DJ he has played clubs, conventions, parties, Burning Man, and sporting events. He produces three of the world’s most popular music podcasts: Podrunner, Podrunner: Intervals, and Groovelectric.

Steve currently lives in the San Francisco Bay area. His website, with all his various activities neatly delineated thereupon, is here.

Dale Pendell is the author of the award-winning Pharmako trilogy, a literary history of psychoactive plants. His poetry is widely anthologized, most recently in The Wisdom Book of American Buddhist Poetry. He was the founding editor of Kuksu: Journal of Backcountry Writing, a co-founder of the Primitive Arts Institute, and has led workshops at the Naropa Institute and the Omega Institute. His most recent books are Walking with Nobby: Conversations with Norman O. Brown; The Language of Bird: Notes on Chance and Divination; and The Great Bay: Chronicles of the Collapse, a novel.

His talk on “horizon anarchism” is summarized on Wikipedia.

He and his wife Laura and a familiar cat live in the foothills of the Sierra in California, where they grow pine and oak trees, along with some manzanita. Their performance group, Oracular Madness, most recently appeared at Burning Man.

Each author will read a selection from their work, followed by Q & A from the audience, moderated by author Terry Bisson. Booksigning and schmoozing follow afterwards in the lounge.
