Brainstorm: who is next?

It's about time to do another literary Open Brainstorm session, so with which Castalia House author would you most like to discuss his works? I don't count, so leave me out of it. We'll save John C. Wright for after his next two books come out too, so don't select him either. One thing we're going to do differently than before is to allow people to submit their questions for the author ahead of time, which should help keep things rolling and allow us to address more topics in more detail.

Go ahead and suggest away, and whoever is most in demand at the moment will be invited first. If they can't do it for one reason or another, we'll work our way down the list. Remember, this isn't about your favorite Castalia author, or who you think is the best Castalia author, only the author for whom you've got the most burning questions.

Brainstorm members, the transcript for the Richard Spencer session is being prepared and will be going out to you this weekend. It will not be made generally available.

UPDATE: David the Good it is, assuming he's not too busy with his new hobby of extreme body-modification.

This is not a drill. The Obama administration just implemented a new regulatory change that has sent the entire firearms industry into a tailspin overnight.

A key ingredient necessary for making gunpowder has been re-classified as a high explosive, making it illegal for any company within the industry to transport or store it as they have for decades.

Owen Stanley. The Australian explorer, author, and aerobatic pilot; not the Naval Officer. Of course, it would be acceptable if you were to arrange an appearance by Owen Stanley the Naval Officer. Either way.

(If / when Cernovich's Trump book comes out, presumably VD will do a session with him at that time.)

Honestly... Anonymous Conservative. His book on narcissists is just a good topic to discuss about in general as well, as well as how his definitions of narcissist overlap with over groups of ne'er-do-wells (Gammas and SJWs).

Nick Cole was pretty interesting on the night of the No Award party.

But I am also a big fan Fenrus' book. Also it would prove once and for all that Vox and Fenrus are indeed two separate people.

Blogger weka September 01, 2016 10:03 PM  

Kratman. And publish the transcript.

He never should have fooled around with that Krell educator helmet. Now he's paying royalties to a figment of his imagination.

I'll second that! David the Good, definitely. On a separate, but related, note does anybody know who I can ask regarding when David's book "Compost Everything" will be back in stock on amazon? I bought "Grow or Die" and "Compost Everything" (and I'm really enjoying "Grow or Die") but amazon says it's ("Compost Everything") 'currently out of stock' and they'll email me when that changes.

I just wanted to know if it *is* going to be reissued/stocked in dead tree form, or if the electronic version is all that's available, and the dead tree purchase option is just on the book's amazon page because it accidentally wasn't taken down when the print editions sold out...if that makes sense. I'm eager to read it, so if I have to buy the e-version, because there won't be any more print versions, I'd rather find out sooner than later, y'know? Thanks in advance for the help! :-)

wow. This is a tough question. Yes to all the above, and add all the Lind you can. Lind, Kratman, van Creveld, and Pournelle (and probably all the rest, sheesh) would be especially interesting to hear from in light of what has happened over the past year.
