[Amazon.com Kindle]
[BarnesAndNoble.com dead tree and Nook]
The unabridged audio version of my 1983 novel The Nagasaki Vector, brilliantly read by the great libertarian radio host Brian Wilson, is finally available for purchase.

Many feel that this is the funniest book I've written so far—at least intentionally—and features our old friend Win Bear, G. Howell Nahuatl, a sapient coyote, time traveler Bernie Gruenblum, and Georgie, the time machine who loves him.

The price: $12.99.
The place: CD Baby.

I understand that it will soon be available in iTunes, as well.

THE CURRENT ISSUE


EDITORIAL MATTERS:

To all of you who "click-through" the Enterprise to buy stuff from the web-sites of our sponsors and affiliates, I send out a big THANK YOU! We do get paid a bit from that, and it does come in handy!

Y'all will remember the New World Order flap of some few years ago or so. Here's one of the places (the place?) that phrase got started at:

H.G. Wells
The New World Order; Whether it is attainable, how it can be attained, and what sort of world a world at peace will have to be.
A Project Gutenberg of Australia eBook, 2004
http://gutenberg.net.au/
This eBook was produced by: Don Lainson dlainson@sympatico.ca
Book first published 1940

It's quite a hoot. A sample:

This new and complete Revolution we contemplate can be defined in a very few words. It is (a) outright world- socialism, scientifically planned and directed, plus (b) a sustained insistence upon law, law based on a fuller, more jealously conceived restatement of the personal Rights of Man, plus (c) the completest freedom of speech, criticism and publication, and sedulous expansion of the educational organisation to the ever- growing demands of the new order. What we may call the eastern or Bolshevik Collectivism, the Revolution of the Internationale, has failed to achieve even the first of these three items and it has never even attempted the other two.

Putting it at its compactest, it is the triangle of Socialism, Law and Knowledge, which frames the Revolution which may yet save the world.
[From CHAPTER 8. THE NEW TYPE OF REVOLUTION]

Remember the TV Show Laugh In? It was an hour (minus time for ads) od comedy skits and running gags. Made the catch phrase "sock it" to me famous.

The Right to Self-Defense Applied to Mass Shootings
by Paul Koning
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal of August 6th, town officials in Houston have released a video in which they discuss how people should respond if they are caught in a mass shooting situation. Among the suggestions is "run, hide, or fight" and the idea to "...fight back as a last resort by using makeshift weapons such as a fire extinguisher." What about firearms?

The Chick-fil-A Problem, Solved
by Jonathan David Morris
I am a man of many talents. For example, I am one of the greatest writers ever -- that talent everyone knows about. I am also an amazing cook, as long as the dish is oatmeal -- that talent fewer people know about. But one talent I have that almost nobody knows about is my ability to iron out a rock solid compromise. This ability has been fine tuned over the course of 34 years of living. In other words, I've been compromising all my life.
