More About the Author

Glen Tate has led an amazing life - and one that took a surprising turn. He grew up poor in the rural logging town of Forks, Washington. He worked hard to become a successful professional with a job in the political arena. Thinking he'd finally made it and everything was great, he was stunned to see how corrupt government is. From his observations at his job, he realized that America is collapsing and bad things are coming. Very soon. He began to prepare for him and his family to make it through the civil unrest of the coming collapse. That meant he had to return to his rural roots - quite a shock to his family and friends. Even more amazing was that he wrote down what he foresees happening during the collapse and it became a ten-book novel series published by Prepper Press.

This is my second review of any literature but wanted to let everyone know that this "book" was worth the read. It was written in much better prose than most of the 5 other "prepper" novels I have already read. But as you could see, I titled my review "$150 Novel in 10 Parts" because as you will find, it appears that the author had written an excellent full length novel only to have the publisher chop the novel into 10 mini unfinished "books" in order to sell them like a weekly television series. I have paid for the first two "books" but now know that this was only the first portions of the original novel. This 2nd "book" shamelessly starts with the chapters numbered continuing from the first "book" which was an obvious clue of the chopping of the original novel in to mini booklets. I have finished the first two "books" only to find that I am still in the middle of the novel the author wrote. I have put other novels down mid-stream and have planned on stopping until all ten are completed and found in the local thrift store. The other shameless tactic was that nearly all the chapters start on the right side of the book which calls for the left side to remain blank thereby making the "books" appear to be much longer than they really are. I like the "books" but am giving it a poor rating for feeling cheated and the deceit I feel the publisher exhibited.

For the most part this is an enjoyable series. I like the scenario (economic meltdown without a complete TEOTWAWKI situation), but the characters can be a little wooden--the author purports they are based on actual people so I can see him filing off the rough edges of his friends to make them into friendly heroes without nuances.

I understand well the concept of normalcy bias, and can understand how it motivate Grant's wife to not go along with him, but wasting pages of her internalizing how "if he would have just hugged me" she would have given in and bugged out spent way too much time hammering the point. This seems to take up 10% of the (very short) length of this section of the overall novel.

Now the good--the author has obviously put a lot of time, thought, and preparation into surviving economic collapse in his native Washington state. I am a big fan of how he portrays the collapse as severe but not 'the end of the world as we know it'. The author is apparently a Washington state politics insider, and having a peek into this world is very illuminating.

Will I continue with this series? I don't know. I can forgive the typos and a few nagging story elements, but the price is too high for page count. I think I will move on to other "prepper porn" novels and hopefully after the series in completed there will be a one-volume omnibus available for a more reasonable price.

I've now read all 4 of these that have been released. I've paid around 36 dollars for those 4. The stories are getting shorter. The dialogue and narrative are geared for people with the mental age of a 7 year old. I'm now of the opinion that the author thinks that he has to write in this manner so that the morons who buy PA books will understand them.

Also, he has now started ending his $10 installments with cliff-hangers.

Don't bother.

This part of the book was far too short for the money it cost. I'm not sure if I will continue to buy future publications.

The storyline is great, though the editing leaves a little to be desired. The first book was a good length. This second book was VERY short. I would not purchase this again, and will not purchase future installments.

This wasnt a book it was a short short story. Shame on Glenn Tate for calling this a book. Also its basically blah blah
blah till the last few pages.
I enjoyed the first but calling this "book two" was stretching it! Wont get the next installment or at least wont pay good money on a phamplet.

In my review of "Preparation", I mentioned that a I was a little distracted by all the typos, and general lack of proofreading. This one was even worse. I'm not sure if the author is writing part time... or if he has no friends or family who can proofread... but the amount of mistakes is just inexcusable. I have a hard time believing that anyone made any attempt to proofread this. In addition, this book was very short, and like the first book, ended abruptly. Even at $6.95, I'd have to say that I felt a little cheated. I have many books that I have spent over $20 on. I have no problem at all paying $8 - $15 for a well written book. But if I pay average retail for a nove, it should be well written, well researched, not a kindle versions - so they could be loan out or resold. I feel that if Tate wants to put out rough drafts, the prices should reflect that. Either sell them for $4.95, or put in a little more effort to put out a professional book. If a college student turned in a research paper with this many mistakes, they would receive a failing grade - regardless of the effort put into the research.

Not only was this poorly written, but it was weak. I believe the reader could gain just as much prepping info from 2 hours of visiting blogs, and could get far more entertainment from a movie trailer of a zombie movie or watching a Nutnfancy gear review.

I really hate to be so critical of this work, because I like prepper porn as much as the next guy. I hope that this was just a mediocre attempt to get something out by a deadline, and not a deliberate attempt to just get another $10 per paperback from his readers. Either way, I think I am done with this series, and I can not recommend this. I'd suggest picking up a copy of Devil's Guard, by George Robert Elford, instead. Far better story at half the price, and it has no typos.
