Sales Through Controversy - Russell Newquist

Sales Through Controversy


File770 has graciously shared the announcement of There Will Be War: Volume X, for which I am grateful. But I’m even more grateful for TechGrrl1972, who left this gem in the comments:

I love Jerry Pournelle’s work. His politics, not so much at this point. But I absolutely will not throw one single penny into that publishing house’s coffers.

Excellent! You see, for every comment like this that’s out there, one person will go buy it just to piss off her side of the debate and two more will go buy it just to find out what all the fuss is about. As a contributor to this particular work, I couldn’t bee more thrilled to see this comment. Except perhaps by the several others that follow in the same thread.

Thank you, TechGrrl1972! Thank you!

Russell Newquist

My name is Russell Newquist. I am a software engineer, a martial artist, an author, an editor, a businessman and a blogger. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy and a Master of Science degree in Computer Science, but I'm technically a high school dropout. I also think that everything in this paragraph is pretty close to meaningless. I work for a really great small company in Huntsville, Alabama building really cool software. I'm the owner and head instructor of Madison Martial Arts Academy, which I opened in 2013 less to make money and more because I just really enjoy a good martial arts workout with friends. I'm the editor in chief of Silver Empire and also one of the published authors there. And, of course, there is this blog - and all of its predecessors. There's no particular reason you should trust anything I say any more than any other source. So read it, read other stuff, and think for your damn self - if our society hasn't yet over-educated you to the point that you've forgotten how.
