My name is Liam Fisher. I am beginning this blog as a way to discuss my writing and thoughts on a number of different topics, including fiction, disaster preparedness, history, philosophy, and theology. I am an academic, with publications in my field, and have an extensive education in history. I am interested in all manner of topics -- technology, sociology, science, medicine, Jeeps, shooting, hunting, primitive skills, hiking, horses, and gardening. Mostly, I simply would like to have a conversation with you. In the coming weeks I will be posting information about my publications, so stay tuned.
