ghrit suggested that I put up a post here in the Reading Room .... A couple of you have already found my online survival fiction blog called The Union Creek Journal. Beginning in November of 2014, the Journal chronicles the struggles of a Midwestern family to survive after a global economic collapse sends the world crashing back into the 19th Century. The main character, David Johnson, and the members of his extended family prepared for what they felt was inevitable. But, there are certain things for which you simply cannot prepare. Along with what I hope is some very engaging and entertaining fiction, I try to incorporate real-world survival tips and ideas. The blog entries are in reverse chronological order on the site but I highly recommend that you read them in chronological order. Start with the November 2, 2014 entry and then click on the links in the upper, right-hand corner to read the rest of the entries in order.
