Nuclear Power
”n this book I provide a solution to nuclear reactor core meltdown…that will save lives and the environment (this could have helped at Fukushima, Japan). How radiation is introduced into our food chain is illustrated. The radiation fallout effects are detailed since 1945, along with basic nuclear reactor anatomy, and a brief explanation of "fission", so anyone can understand how nuclear power is developed and used. In addition to this a list of some nuclear 'accidents' from around the world along with incredible as it might sound "lost nuclear weapons!" “

Nature Survival, War, and other Hardship

Angel's Bend - The Diary of Joshua Samuel Talmadge
“Follow the story of the tall, handsome young man, Joshua Talmadge, as he finds adventure, danger and love in the old west. Joshua loves his horse, his life as a wilderness guide and his mountain home, … faces wild animals and wild men with courage and strength.” Family-friendly & written by a Christian.

Youth. “This short story begins in the 1850’s in Maryland which is home to many slave families. Wanting better for their children, Jezebel's family begins the long and dangerous journey towards freedom. Follow eight year old Jezebel to freedom.”

Sharecropper's Son
“What seems on it's face an autobiographical account of self-proclaimed "Old Fogey" Bert Hayes' childhood experiences growing up as the eleventh of twelve children born to a poor sharecropping family in the Georgia piedmont is simply a pretext for what is actually an eloquently presented blueprint of the powerful philosophy that not only saw that poor sharecropper from the red clay hills of Georgia to the sands of Middle East and eventually as Professor Emeritus of Humanities and History at Athens State University, but also saw his entire generation through the tribulations of the Great Depression forward through the Second World War. In an age where our country seems to be desperately trying to find itself, lost in the "new" philosophy of "It's not my fault," Sharecropper's Son is a clear call to action for the present generation to learn from the mistakes of the past and avert the coming disastrous consequences of the new "blame society." Every voting age person in America should read this book. “

Politics, Terrorism, and Intrigue/Conspiracy

The Greatest Domestic Threat
“America was in a tailspin. The economy was spiraling out of control, jobs were nowhere to be found and corruption in politics had hit an all-time high. Now a malicious terrorist group threatened the heart of the nation. “

“An unstable terrorist plots destruction on the United States and Europe. After perfecting an arcane energy system that the United States and the Soviet Union have been working on since the 60’s, a weapon of unimaginable power, emerges from a humanitarian scientist attempting to create free energy for the world.” One poor review. Check the sample—you may or may not agree.

Collapse, Post-Apocalypse, Speculative Futures

Target: Earth
Asteroid disaster. From a review: "Target: Earth is a story of a group of survivalist families who have been preparing their 'bug out' retreat without a specific incident in mind of when they may need it. They had purchased together a property in the desert ..." Parts 2 and 3, Target: Earth II - The Genesis Project and Target: Earth III - New Hope (not free) continue the story. These are on my priority list. (They’ve never been free since I’ve been looking.)  Perfect prepper fiction. :)
