The Milkman's Coming: Forced Exercise

I thought loosely about a series of posts on our road to the Free World.  Turns out, this will be easier than I expected.  Here's another article about a concept I explore in The Milkman:  Forced Exercise.  It's from Andrew Leonard, who I've been following for years.  It's creepy, people.  Creepy because of the understandable logic.

Five Things I Learned

I have a guest post at Chuck Wendig's constantly interesting Terrible Minds.  It's about five things I learned writing The Milkman and comes directly from my terrible mind.  And not terrible in a cool way - terrible like, why can't I do basic math or get song lyrics right.

10 companies make 90% of what we eat

I think I'm going to start a new thread in this blog:  The Milkman's Coming.  According to this article, almost everything we consume is a product of just ten corporations.  These are multinationals, who function outside the dictates of any one specific nation.  I'm not making a judgement call.  Perhaps all this consolidation is fine - or at least, not terrible.  I am pointing it out because it is one more fact that makes my book, The Milkman, that much more believable.

A starter posted a tasting platter of excerpts from The Milkman.  It's delicious.

The Scariest Part

Nicholas Kaufman honored me with a post on his Website, which discusses the scariest parts of books.  I'm very thankful for the chance to continue my crusade to get economics listed as a horror sub-genre.   Or at least, Statistics.

Invisible Hand and Animal Spirits

Carole Gill let me guest blog on her Website, which is wonderful and kind of her. She writes spooky stuff, and while The Milkman wouldn't be shelved that way at the book store, there is enough scary stuff for her tastes. I keep telling people, economics is frightening. Worse than zombies.
