Teaser Tuesday: McCallandia by Bill Hall

McCall took the oath of office from Chief Justice Burger shortly after noon the following day. Nixon had been carried off the White House lawn in a Marine helicopter, giving a final salute to gathered supporters.

-- McCallandia by Bill Hall.

Bill Hall's clever new political novel, McCallandia, imagines what America would have been like if Tom McCall, Oregon's popular, environmentally-friendly governor, had succeeded Richard Nixon as President after Watergate.

McCall was a moderate Republican, best remembered for passage of Oregon's Bottle Bill and making the state's ocean beaches public. He also played a small roll in counter-culture history when he countenanced Oregon's mini version of Woodstock, Vortex I, the "only state-sponsored rock festival."

You can order McCallandia from Nestucca Spit Press or Powell's Books.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Huh, I do wonder what it would have been liked if McCallandia did become president...
