    We are also selling a limited number of signed copies: Lights Out by David Crawford - aka Halffast

    You can also buy copies at Amazon (a small percentage goes to support the site)
    or from Lights Out the book

    Update 9/28/2010: I received an email from Halffast recently and he told me that he's nearing the end of the final edit for publishing. He's a little behind on his target and was beating himself up over commas and other uses of the English language. If everyone could post a quick note in support, I think we can get him to finish this task!! David should be checking in here again soon.

    I'm working on getting a lot more than 20 copies to offer for purchase.

    We're giving away 20 signed copies of Lights Out! as soon as it's published.

    -Update from Halffast 2/23/2010
    Well, the day has come. I have made a deal with a Hollywood producer to shop Lights Out around to some studios. He thinks we have a great shot at getting one of them to take on the project. We are also working on a book deal.


    That means that I need to ask you to remove LO from your site. There is no way that I can ever repay you for the support you have given the story. Of course you will get an acknowledgement in the book and I will send you a signed copy.

    Thanks again for everything.

    You may have seen this at Frugalls...
    I have David's permission to post this fine SHTF tale. It's a work in progress which I first discovered a few years ago...
    You'll be begging for more chapters...
    Complete and available right here:

    I want to sincerely thank all of the readers of "Lights Out" for all of the support and encouragement over the last three years. Without you, I would have never made it this far. I hope that the ending lives up to your expectations. God bless you all.

    Well, it'll come out like an insult to Idahoans, but I never meant it that way. I got stationed to Mtn. Home AFB from Eglin (that's in Fla) while I was in the sandbox, in January. And I wasn't too happy about it. That's when I made my handle.

    Just kept it, don't have to add digits, it stays pretty unique.

    This is where I was from way back, moved here after retiring.

    I finished it a few days ago, my wife finished yesterday, and my son is 4- or 500 pages in.

    I printed the whole thing for my wife, she doesn't like reading online. I printed in "booklet" layout, so if I could figure out a way to bind it, I plan to keep it around. I REALLY like this story.

    Welcome Idahoser. Tell us about being in the sandbox.

    Hopefully you will see me pull this thread down one day. Halffast told me that if he ever published, (and I hear that it is being workied on), that we'd have to kill the online copies.

    Of course, we'd get first dibs on some nice signed first editions though ;)

    Halffast is way too talented to stay undiscovered for very long. This should be published. It was a great read.
