NPN ventured into
the world of the printed word in 2002. We have both novels and poetry from
Dan Burke and Leandro Vera.
North Beach for five years must have been an inspiration for Dan.
While there, he wrote his first novel, Driving into the Sun
(2003), which comes in at a whopping 260 pages of Bohemian
adventure. During the same time frame he scribbled down a truckload
of poetry. The best of that collection is now available in
the form of For Fame or Fable (2003).
Vera has benefited from what he calls, "The Great Wash," during the turn of the
millennium. His direct experience in multiple cultures and life
experiments is the foundation for his writings. These learning can
be found in his first NPN release Handshakingly Sinister Pleasantries
(1999), a novel about the many corporate faces he played at the end
of the millennium. NPN will also be releasing Dentynes and Tentacles (2000), a book of
wide-ranging poems sometime this fall.
