Hey G,
I thought I read somewhere that the new book The War was coming out at the end of this month.  Only two days left.  Is it still on schedule?

Also, when you look up your books on Amazon, your latest book, The Change of Seasons doesn't show up on your author page.  All your other books, you are listed as Glen Tate but on The Change of Seasons, you are listed as Tate, Glen.  I guess it makes a difference.  You might want to make sure your new one is listed correctly as Glen Tate.

Looking forward to the next installment! :knitting:

Wondering if there will be any set discounts, or if someone here can loan or sell me theirs when they are done reading them ? I am afraid I cant do $100 to read the series, and it sounds like a real, real good read that I would be interested in.

I am new to this forum but so far I like what I see.  As to Glen Tate's books - they are the best books that I have read in the past 4 years.  What could happen in the future, I don't know but my fear is a financial collapse or EMP - both are very very bad for this country.  I have to say my politics have changed in the past four years also from very far left to right of center in my fiscal range but my leanings in the social area is still on the left side but a lot more center than in the past. This is from reading the 299 Days series among others.  Glad I found this.

Thanks Chad ! When you're on disability, and am a fast reader, these things can be otherwise out of reach !

So over at the 299 Days Facebook page, I saw this quote from Glen Tate:

I just saw the final version of the cover to Book Nine. Oh my goodness. It's so freakin' awesome. You'll love it. It captures the whole series in one image.

So, hopefully, book 9 will be coming out soon.   :popcorn:

I just have to say I loved all 8 of them I have read so far. I have read them through twice and didnt realize that "TSP" was a real podcast till the second read through and thought I would just check to see if it was real. So far loving both the podcast and the forum!

I've read the whole series, met "Heavy G" once in person and a couple of the characters as well.  Very enjoyable read overall.

Reading stuff being "real"...

To be more accurate, 3/4 of Book One may be "real", and a good number of the characters are based on "real" people from what I understand.

Given that 9.25 of the books are set during a political/economic collapse that has yet to happen, I take some objection to calling it reality.

"Pow" is an actual dude, and a very nice guy at that.  However, last I knew he hadn't raided any meth houses, cleared rooms with a real threat of hostilities - let alone had to kill another human in anger.

I mention all this because, as preppers if we convince ourselves that these things will eventually take place, we risk it becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I email him once in awhile to make sure he is still upright. He replies, so I presume he is.

I meant more that I thought the Podcast in the book was fictional too. Something in the second read through triggered a memory of a mention of it someplace else and I thought I would try and find the podcast that was the inspiration of the one in the book so I was so surprised to realize it wasn't really a inspiration, but a real podcast.  Oh geeze that was a long drawn out sentience, I think I need some sleep.

Yes.  In some small way, many of us at TSP are part of the problem :)

I found several ideas in the books that came from the flip your spouse , and the ammo shortages threads on TSB.

The 2 things I really took from the book, that I believe would be true is how fast police, LEO, and military would walk from their posts, and how out gunned the US military is vs the civilians.
