I heard from my editor at Penguin that they are going back to press in March for another 10,000 copies of my recent nonfiction book “How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It: Tactics, Techniques, and Technologies for Uncertain Times”, which will bring the total in print to just over 70,000 copies. Thanks for helping to spread the word, folks!

“Cowboy” sent us this from The Los Angeles Times: ‘Survivors’ on BBC America–The British are so civilized at world’s end. The tongue-in-cheek review begins with these priceless words: “Even if you watch “Survivors,” a post-apocalyptic drama premiering on BBC America, with the sound off, you would know it was British for one reason: No guns. A plague quickly wipes out 90% of the world’s population leaving a few scattered survivors, and no one has the sense to bear arms. Except one clearly crazy man who shows up in Episode 2 to terrorize the “good guys” with a lone rifle [JWR Adds: Actually, it was double-barrel shotgun] not once, not twice, but three times and still no shots are fired. I realize the British gun laws are stricter than ours, but still — these people did build an empire once upon a time, and they didn’t do it with pluck and goodwill.”
