Discussion in 'Survival Reading Room' started by BRONZ, Aug 4, 2005.
My first poll...
I'd really say all three BRONZ. I voted for Patriots only because I read it around Fall of '99, with Y2K heavily on my mind. It made an impression.
Lucifers Hammer was cool too. I loved the Stashing of books in the Septic Tank.. Good idea really. Will anyone ever look in the tank for anything. Too bad they didn't have 12 goats a year for that guy though.
Alas Babylon was really good too. Set in a different era but one that we may want to explore further.
And Lights Out, well, what can I say? I've been following that read for years now. Halffast checks in on this board from time to time and I'm hoping that gets us a sneak preview. I remember printing out the first 20 chapters when that was all that existed and passing them out to friends.
Time flies and now there are what?, 72?
It was a good 'first poll' BRONZ.
Glad to see you.
It was a tie for me, between Patriots and Lights out!
I voted for 'Lights Out'. That's what brought me to this forum, and this my very first post/reply.
Welcome HardRock! Glad to have you
Are they kidding .... Patriots for $65.00 new.... over 200.00 used
Wouldn't mind reading it but not at that price.
Anyone got any idea where you can get a copy for a reasonable amount
Rawles has told me that he is planning to republish it soon.
Let me know when you hear on the Patriots being republished
Have any of you read Vin Suprynowicz The Black Arrow. A tale of the resistance, if so what did you think of it.
You can't find these books at the Library, that's usually where I get books to read. Heck I pay enough in taxes to feel good about using them.
I have been reading The Quest on FS. Another good read.
What or Where is FS? I'm an avid reader
Sorry, I mean www.frugalsquirrels.com
Havent read lights out.
bug out was a real loser, but correctly reflects the cluelessness of 99.9+% of the population. ditto Babalon and Patriots. What a laugh, claiming 50 bmg has any more effective range (on dodging, cover using men) than a 300 win mag. Big waste of money and time, the .50. except a sound suppressed version, for costing BB 100 bill $ with one shot.
Can't find the quest on FS do you have a link to it, out of reading material TIL my new books get here and i'm having withdrawals

I am also out of good survival reads. Anymore links?
Lights out was the first one i read and it was terrific. Got me started reading all these survival stories. btw, i have ordered the books you reccomended and a couple of others should have them soon. Then I will be devouring them TIL I'm done.
I am registered so won't be a problem
You read all 279 above you?
I think it was nice knowing you all, with Melbo's list I shall be very busy for awhile
Ah no, I didn't see the stories under your post. I was reading Skyfall, but it wasn't finished at the time. :dunno: I didn't know it until I got the end, of what was finished.
Not your fault EL... I edited it as you posted. FS shows posts over the last 30 IIRC by default... Need to open it up to SHow ALL. Lot's of old stuff buried in there.
Alot of Forums do that to keep the pages current and loading faster. I think you can change the Monkey too... "From Beginning" or something like that
