I’ve had a lot of emails asking about how I wrote Uprising USA. It was written mostly on a Netbook, an HP Mini, running Ubuntu Linux and I used Google Docs. Then what I wrote was posted online at WeTheArmed.com. The encouragement of the members there drove it, and continues to drive it.
In Uprising UK, its written much in the same way… However all the new content from what was initially posted on WTA is written on my HTC Sensation smartphone, using an app called Epistle. Then it is sent to Google Docs… Final editing on my end is being done with OpenOffice. Reason being is that I can write whenever, wherever I want. Good ideas escape less frequently.
My brother Zack, and my friends Mike, Larry, and Tom were at ConDuit and were all on a panel together about surviving in a world gone Zed.
First point of order… When it comes to winning against Zombies, ignore everything Max Brooks has ever written. If you have to get a book or two to follow, the first book to get is the Boy Scout Handbook. Not a new one, but an old one. Then, if you can, the US Army Ranger Manual. Just to make you feel safer.
With the CDC warning of Zombies, and the Zombie Survival Discussion Panel that’s going to happen Friday Night at ConDuit with Larry Correia, Mike Kupari, and my brother Zack… I thought I’d preemptively put out my opinion on the subject. Luckily, I found that my good friend Terry has made my argument for me in language so clear and concise as to command acquiescence and affirmation.
The CDC is warning people about Zombies. It’s kind of funny that he CDC is using Zombies as it’s Disaster Analog, since Gun Owners have been doing it for years and years. We call it our “Zombie Plan”. The ZP can be activated for any disaster/situation which requires drastic actions for survival. Now the CDC report I linked to doesn’t mention it… but Firearms and Ammunition are also critical. Because even if you don’t face Brain Eaters, you will face other people who will want what you have… everything you have.
Get your Shotgun ready.
