Notes from JWR:

Today (June 7, 2011) is Book Bomb Day for the new book The Simplicity Primer, by Patrice Lewis. We highly recommended her book. It should be fun to watch the Amazon rankings, as the day progresses. (For comparison, it was ranked around #16,000 on Monday.)

The first article today is a product review written by SurvivalBlog’s Editor at Large, Michael Z. Williamson. “Mad Mike” is a renaissance man: He’s a science fiction writer, firearms expert, a graphic designer, bladesmith, sport parachutist, martial artist, world traveler, and a historical re-enactor. Mike was Born in Birkenhead, England, but is a naturalized U.S. Citizen and now living in Indiana. He has served many years in the U.S. Air Force, most recently in the Air Force Reserve. This included a deployment to the Middle East. Mike’s many interests have kept him very busy, and he now has more than a dozen books and anthologized short stories in print, from four publishers. Most recently, Mike introduced his very popular WWF parody T-Shirt design. You can order yours, directly from Mike. I plan to wear one to public events, just to enjoy watching the Birkenstock Crowd do double takes. (For anyone that might be unfamiliar: Depending on context, “WWF” is an acronym for both World Wildlife Fund and the World Wrestling Federation–later changed to the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)
