Most of all, the author —a prominent architect who has penned five thick volumes on architecture for McGraw-Hill— has sidestepped the usual “survivalist” shibboleths that infest this genre of literature in favor of asserting the importance of precautionary architecture: how to prepare your home or workplace for a disaster in advance, be safe as it happens, and repair any damage afterward.

Ad for Chainge
Genre: Dystopian

Following promises of change, in a grand affirmative action, the Provider usurped control and created Our State. Across the frigid, snow covered lands; brilliant domed cities called Progressives were erected. For the inhabitants within, life is complete bliss. They are kept ignorant, bestowed rights by the Provider, all they could ever want, a simple exchange for their allegiance. They are the Served, they are the Progs. The Servers, however, are afforded no such luxuries. Their ability, their genetic make-up that predisposes them to productive endeavors and creative expression is their bane, but as the Provider has conditioned them to believe, it is also their freedom, the freedom to serve. Wooden bunks strewn with straw, barbed wire fence, and machine gun towers make up their tenement, their home. Their guards, the Black Cats, provide order and discipline, motivation. For one Server, Medical Provider Blair Huxley, questions continue to plague him. He suffers from the treasonous ailment termed individual thought. A chance encounter with a Prog at the Medical Rights Facility adds to Huxley’s questions, questions concerning the morality of the system of which he is a part. His journey towards answers brings him face to face with the true meaning of Chainge. “Knowledge creates choice; choice leads to chaos. Chaos begets pain, strife, conflict, and the insidious act of thought. We offer the people something far better: ignorance. The body is but an easel, ignorance the blank slate of the mind, an empty canvas upon which we freely paint, in brush strokes of various hues, the images of bliss. Rest assured, Server Huxley, we are not tyrants or villains, we are not despots or dictators; we are visionaries, we are emancipators, and we are artists. A person cannot want what they do not know exists. We keep the Served blissful by keeping them ignorant. It is as though the Served are a donkey following a carrot on a stick. We keep a simple pleasure before them. They will always go the direction we wish for them to go, for we are the carrot. “ Andrei Zamyatin Overseer of Bliss and Harmony Progressive 17

Ad for The Story of a Never Ending Way
Genre: Documentary/Travel

The Way is none other than the famous Catholic pilgrimage of St. James the Great across the Iberian Peninsula in Northwestern Spain. My journey began in France, in the picturesque village of Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, in the foothills of the Pyrenees and ended in Santiago de Compostela, in Spain where the saint who first charted the Way, lies entombed. The route passes through countless of towns and villages. I encountered many breathtaking landscapes, rivers and forests and truly wonderful people; pilgrims who walked with me and others who lived along the road. I also experienced and discovered the rich and marvelous culture--so different to mine--of the Basque people, who are still deeply rooted to their ancient traditions. My journey was difficult, with many kilometers to travel almost without stopping, sometimes over great altitudes and at others over infinitely long stretches. I was exhausted and often in pain from the impossibly long distances, but it was nonetheless a magical, internal procedure which gave me all the more admiration for life. I walked about 770-775 kilometers and I would not change a single day of it.
