New Patreon bonus: FIRST BLOOD book vs. movie comparison

As I’ve mentioned before, I feel a little weird about promoting my Patreon during These Uncertain Times™. I guess I always feel weird about it. But the fact is your generous, totally optional support is helping me get through this, it’s so much better than having to freelance for morally questionable outlets, and I want to show my gratitude. So what I have here is a rough draft I dug up from 2008 when I was trying to write a follow-up to Seagalogy. If you’re interested in how the Stallone classic FIRST BLOOD differs from the David Morrell book it’s based on, here you go! (spoilers for both, of course)

Thanks again.

  1. Good shit, Vern. I laughed out loud a couple times. I will need to find a goat and run some tests for you.

  2. I give a small amount every month. I’ll probably increase it because I’ve been deemed an “essential” worker and have stayed working through all this time. Just know your writing as always have given me and mine enjoyment.

  3. I know it’s not the case but it feels like the These Uncertain Times Trademark is in there just for me Vern. Still makes me chuckle.

  4. I love that cover. A little odd that the title is on the back though. I’ve seen a couple books like that, so it’s not too unusual but rare. Rambo looking more like Eric Clapton during junkie years gives a good enough indication on how the character changed.

  5. Am I the only one who thinks the sheriff on the cover looks like a serious version of Boyle from BROOKLYN 99?

  6. The way Rambo is described in the book sounds like Bill Moseley from THE DEVIL’S REJECTS.
