I'm so happy to see so many bloggers I follow become published authors.

First it was Larry Correia with the Monster Hunter series.

Then it was Marko Kloos with Terms of Enlistment

And now Peter, the most prolific and entertaining blogger I know - Take The Star Road

Good luck with the new book Peter!

Gun Control - The Truth

There has been a lot of talk recently about gun control, especially after Sandy Hook. What can be done? What should be done? What do we mean by 'magazine capacity' or 'flash suppressor'?

In the clip below you can see the most literate, eloquent response that I have ever seen.




It is just an honour to think that I have some autographed books by him!

School Shooting: Sandy Hook Elementary

The murder of innocent children.

What should our reaction be and what is our gut instinct?

My gut instinct reacts to the pain and anguish for the kids and their families. My reaction is to listen to all sides int his argument.

Like Insomniac Medic, here, I'm confused. I've discussed numerous times before, and again this week, with people in my office who say 'ban all guns' but that just cannot be the answer, if only because it's slamming the barn door shut after the horse has bolted.

The best, most level headed and expert opinion I have read has been from Larry Correia who is now a successful (and gifted!) author, but before picking up the pen, was a gun store owner, weapons instructor and gun enthusiast. I strongly suggest you read his excellent piece 'An Opinion On Gun Control'.


If, after reading Larry's opinion, you are still worried that the government are coming to take away your rifle or ammo, read this piece by AnarchAngel 'Stupidity, Politics and Math'.

And remember - let's keep safe out there.

I'm A Winner, Seriously!

Remember me telling you all about Larry Correia's new book back in October 2010? Or, more recently, about Monster Hunter Legion - Limited Signed Edition last month?

Well, then you'll understand why I am over the moon to hear that I am the winner of the Monster Hunter International prize mega package. I'm just blown away.Signed books, a poster and hopefully - and this is priceless - my name in Larry Correia's next book.


And The Winners Are...



The weird thing is that I am a tad cash strapped at the moment, what with having a 3 year old, a 1 year old and a wife at home - and no chance of a promotion or pay raise any time in the near future. So when I read of Jay's plan of raising money for a prostate cancer charity I thought 'nice idea, but I gave at the (tax) office'.

JayG convincing people to sponsor him 

And then I remembered Jason Boas. A friend of mine from high school. We'd gone our separate ways after graduation but I'd been in touch with him here and there over the years and then in the last few months of his life he came to a hospice in my area for care. We were going to meet up but he was just too weak to even chat on the phone sometimes.Sadly, as I reported back then, Jason died in November 2008.

Its nearly November now, and I remember Jason at this time of year so I thought 'heck, I'll donate to this charity and even when I don't win, I'll feel happy about doing it'.

So I'm triply happy; to be able to give to a great charity, to win the mega prize and to be able to remember Jason and pass on to others the message of his charity - 'No Surrender'.

Monster Hunter Legion - Limited Signed Edition

Some people call me a space cowboy yeah, Some call me the gangster of love,Some people call me Maurice,Cause' I speak of the pompetous of love.
None of which is true about me at all whatsoever. 

However, when the great lyrics continue;
Cause' I'm a picker, I'm a grinner, I'm a lover, and I'm a sinner, playin' my music in the sunI'm a joker, I'm a smoker, I'm a mid-night toker, I get my lovin' on the run
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Yes, there is a bit of me in that. But I'd change just one thing. I'm a reader. I'm a voracious reader. My home library has over 500 books. 

Library
Ambrose, Clancy, Baldacci, Kathy Reichs, Keegan, Kotler, Burford, Chambers, Robert Mason, Linderer, Silva, Griffin, Cornwell, and yes, the list goes on.

And that list has been added to by a young and exciting author named Larry Correia. 

So what's so great about Correia's writing? I can't explain (which is probably why he is the author and I'm the fanboy  blogger!)

He writes about vampires and orcs and ogres and werewolves, special powers, normal humans and past events. Things I would not touch with a bargepole in any other book I have read. Ever.

The way he writes about them really brings them to life and into a reality but in a way that gives them personality and drive. Its funny, cute, interesting, thrilling, enthralling, sad and real.

A mother-in-law who is a vampire. A foe who is an ogre. A friend who is a werewolf. An ornamental gnome who kicks his ass...

Don't take my word for it, go over to his website and read about him and then go buy the books!
