David Forsyth: Best Selling Author of Horror and Post-Apocalyptic Fiction
Bobby Akart “Prepping For Tomorrow

David Forsyth david-forsyth-bioOn this week’s episode of the Prepping for Tomorrow program with Author Bobby Akart, bestselling author David  Forsyth will be our special guest.

David brings a unique nautical based writing expertise to the Prepping for Tomorrow program, having written two complete series based on the high seas. His Sovereign Spirit series and Sedulity books put readers in the relative comfort of luxury cruise liners, but that changes rapidly.

David Forsyth sovereign-spirit-coverHe self-published his first three novels in 2012.Voyage of the Dead, Flotilla of the Dead, and Deluge of the Dead comprise the 300,000 word Sovereign Spirit Saga: Volume 1. The plot revolves around survivors aboard a mega-yacht sailing through a world overrun by the zombie apocalypse. The characters could easily sail off to a deserted island, but choose instead to rescue and assist other survivors along the coast of California. From there, it gets really interesting.

2-4-2016 retribution-coverDavid’s books in the Sedulity Saga focus on the passengers and crew of a cruise ship sailing to Australia when a mile-wide asteroid strikes the Pacific Ocean. The focus is on the threat posed by a natural disaster. The threat extends far beyond the lives of those aboard the ship, but unlike his Sovereign Spirit Saga, there are no zombies present.

I first met David when we worked together on The Perseid Collapse Kindle Worlds project. His book, Retribution, was consistently atop the Science Fiction best seller rankings.  One of the main characters in Retribution, the USS Florida, an Ohio class cruise missile submarine, makes a cameo appearance in his latest work entitled Submerged, in the World of Wool, which pays homage to Hugh Howey’s Wool and Silo Saga series. This is a sea-faring story of the crew of a nuclear submarine that witnesses TEOTWAWKI, but refuses to accept it.

David holds a master’s degree in international relations and has pursued diverse interests and career paths. He is a licensed pilot and certified scuba diver. Mr. Forsyth’s professional endeavors have ranged from international trade to travel marketing, and from charter aviation to construction management. He lives in Malibu, California, with the love of his life, Pamela, and an army of munchkin cats.

Widespread Terrorism Is Just Part Of The Perfect Storm That Is Now Descending On The Western World

By Michael Snyder – The Economic Collapse Blog

Words cannot adequately describe the utter horror that was unleashed on the streets of Paris, France on Friday.  CNN is calling it “the worst violence witnessed in France since World War II“, and even though it happened a couple of days ago now, many of us are still having a really tough time processing what took place.  Somehow, a small group of less than 10 radical Islamists was able to unleash a coordinated wave of attacks that killed at least 129 people and injured at least 350.  All of this comes less than a year after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, and many in the western world are now starting to understand that something has fundamentally changed.  Even though France has a highly advanced anti-terrorism infrastructure, and even though it also has some of the strictest anti-gun laws in Europe, none of that did anything to prevent these attacks.  Despite all of our advanced technology, the openness of our society makes us highly vulnerable to Islamic terror.  And as more waves of refugees from the Middle East are absorbed by both Europe and the United States, it is inevitable that there will be more attacks like this.

According to Google, the definition of a “soft target” is “a person or thing that is relatively unprotected or vulnerable, especially to military or terrorist attack.”  And as we just saw in France, the western world is literally teeming with soft targets.  I am talking about sporting events, concert halls, schools, churches, shopping malls, power stations, water treatment facilities, mass transit, etc.

For those that wish to create terror, the opportunities are endless.

In the western world, we generally rely on certain deterrents in order to maintain order.  Most sane people do not want to be shot, and most sane people do not want to go to prison.

But what do you do when there are large numbers of crazy people that are actually looking forward to being martyrs?

We don’t really have a defense for the kind of attack that we just witnessed in France.  What can you really do when you are dealing with large numbers of homicidal maniacs that are not afraid to die and that can strike anywhere at any time?  Unless you can identify the terrorists or their plans ahead of time, it becomes a guessing game.

And the level of evil demonstrated by these terrorists is truly astounding.  At the Bataclan Theater, two of the terrorists fired their AK-47s indiscriminately into the crowd for a full 10 minutes

A Bit of Spook For You!

Today, I’d like to do something different and share an excerpt of a new piece of fiction that I’m working on.
Be warned, it’s horror. Mild right now, but it’ll get freaky later.
It doesn’t have a title yet, but I’m open to suggestions. Suggest something in the comments section. When it sees publication, if I use your suggestion, you’ll get a shout-out in the acknowledgements! You could be famous…
Anyway, here’s the excerpt, please let me know what you think!

****

They say I’m mad, the people here. But I’m not. Not really. They just don’t understand because they’ve never been face to face with the evil that I have.
You asked what I saw? It wasn’t just what I saw, but what I heard and smelled. Hell, the whole thing.

Have you heard of Christina Mine? No? I’m not surprised, it’s not much now. Back in its prime it was a small village of maybe 60 buildings; a store, some homes, a train station, outbuildings for the mine, a hotel and a mill that took in logs from the surrounding woods and prepped them for the train trip south. By the time I saw the area a hundred years later all that was left was the skeleton of the mill, the train station and a boarded up entrance to the mine. The closest collection of people was ten miles away. I thought it was going to be a peaceful summer, the real estate agent never said a word about anything hinky going on before I bought the place. I thought it was just a sad, neglected train station.

I replaced the windows and doors before I ever stayed overnight. A couple of times I thought I heard kids playing in the hall, but of course, when I went to look they had left. I replaced the locks after that. The day after I replaced the locks, I was out in the front yard having a smoke and happened to glance up at the second story. When I saw someone’s face looking back at me from the corner of the window, I ran inside, grabbed my gun and charged up the stairs, mad as hell. It was my place, you know? I didn’t want kids coming back in, ruining what I’d done to fix the old place up. It never occurred to me that the closest kids would have lived ten miles away.  Of course I found no one else besides myself. I double checked the locks and kept my gun close by. It never really bothered me then.

The next time something weird happened, I was up a ladder, painting the outside of the building. I had picked up a few gallons of simple white on a trip to town and only had to wait for the right day. Well, the day finally came. The bugs were scarce, there was a slight breeze and it was as bright a day as I’d ever seen. So I set my stuff up, leaned the ladder against the building and took my tray and roller up the ladder. I had been painting for a couple of hours when I heard someone laugh, kind of a chuckle, right beside me. Like anyone else would, I looked. Of course there was no one there, I was twenty-something feet off the ground! I shrugged to myself and kept painting. When I heard the chuckle again, it came from my other side. Yeah, I looked again. Nope, no one there either. This time though, I got goose bumps up and down my arms. I got off that ladder as fast as my feet could carry me.
