Weekend Homesteader: October
”By October, homesteaders in most parts of the U.S. are thinking hard about winter. This month's volume of Weekend Homesteader introduces two different ways to eat fresh produce deep into the cold months --- plucking winter squash and sweet potatoes right off the shelf and harvesting leafy greens from under quick hoops. Meanwhile, you'll take advantage of free mulch and compost going to waste in your neighborhood and will find out whether life at the poverty line is something to be scared of. For those of you who are new to Weekend Homesteader, this series walks you through the basics of growing your own food, cooking the bounty, preparing for emergency power outages, and achieving financial independence. Technically, the series began in May (or November in the southern hemisphere), but most of the projects are designed to be accessible even to someone starting from square one each month. This ebook, and each other volume in the series, presents one easy and fun project for each weekend so that you'll keep making headway without becoming overwhelmed.”

Short story. “A scientist discovers what appears to be a climate cooling trend. This is contrary to the overwhelming evidence that the climate has been warming for some time, and that human activities… are a major cause of such warming.

The key question is whether anything can be done to reverse the climate cooling that’s relentlessly bringing the planet earth to the edge of a new ice age.”

Inner City
"In the year 2471, the world is sharply divided between the civilized "Haves" of the City and the barbaric 'Have-Nots' of the Outlocked...until a seven year old boy crawls through a secret tunnel, and begins to find out...
