World of Civil Warcraft

I've had several requests for additional cards, and since I'm trying to develop a loyal following- and since it's easier to make new cards than new content- I'm happy to offer the following:

Twilight of the Confederacy

Coming this fall...
After three long years of warfare, the Confederacy is in critical danger. The Yankees have cut deep into Southern territory, sweeping valiant Southern soldiers aside and laying everything waste. The gallant General Lee is entrenched around Petersburg, Virginia, desperately hoping to hold out...for what, no one knows. Day by day, Union General Grant tightens his grip on the Confederates holed up in their trenches, awaiting the end.

It is at this point, with nothing left untried and nothing to lose, that General Robert E. Lee offers his boldest suggestion yet. There is still one, last manpower source in the Confederacy, one last source of crucially needed men to stem the Yankee invasion. Enlisting them, however, could mean the unraveling of the Confederacy itself. For General Lee is suggesting nothing less, than enlisting...


Will the Sons of the South ally themselves with the Undead? Will Dixie go down  to the grave- or rise from it? Will Sherman metaphorically put a stake through the heart of the Confederacy- or in reality?

Read a thrilling excerpt from the book:

General Lee was sitting in his soldier-house. It was like a tent, but not really cuz it was cloth not nylon. Oh, cuz they didn't have nylon then, right? It was, like, old times. Anyway so he's in this "tent" and he calls in his soldier that works as his, like, secretary. "Yo, secretary-dude, can you come in for a sec?"

The soldier came in. "What's up?" He asked. 

"I'm thinking that we should, like, enlist vampires or something, you know, like, whatever?"

"Dude" the soldier said, "no effin' way! That would be lame. No way, bro."

Lee felt the tension in the tent. This might be difficult, he thought.

That's just a preview of the riveting action inside. For the rest of this action-packed thrill ride, look for "Twilight of the Confederacy", coming this fall. Buy it, wherever books are sold!

Civil War- The Gathering?

What if, instead of great real-time strategy games which faithfully replicate details down to pollen counts, we had a Magic: the Gathering-style card game? Let's find out!

A note of thanks

A big thanks to Andy Hall over at Dead Confederates for reposting the Gettysburg texts on his site. Judging from the comments there- and the web hits here- I better get back to work! In my defense, Halloween is a pretty big deal for us, so most of our time from August on was spent working toward that end...but enough excuses!

Coming up on Laughing Reb/Yank:
  • I'll finish the Gettysburg texts for the Union side. Meade's a pretty hot-tempered individual in person- in 140 characters or less, he's bound to be pretty direct.
  • I'm hoping to do a live-action version of "Cookin' With General George"- George Pickett's own offering for FoodTV. First up, a recipe for Baked Shad.
  • More reality TV. Real Housewives is a personal favorite of mine. May try different wives, may flesh the current crew out a bit more.
  • A Mythbusters-type show which goes horribly wrong. "Can one Southern boy beat ten Yankees? We put it to the test!" 
  • I'm kicking around an idea for Sherman, where he tries to apply his "March" philosophy to other business ventures. "Termite infestation? We'll burn 'em out!"
For now, I'll leave you with a quote from my forthcoming novel, "Military Insights Of Benjamin Butler"

(that's right- it's completely blank)

Y'all come back now, ya heah?

Random Silliness

Sometimes I get an idea that just strikes me funny, like Grant playing practical jokes:

Other times it's something absurd, like the debate over what caused the Civil War. Here's my take:

Finally, I get ideas which are just snarky- What's Gen. Sherman's favorite color? Ash! Here's another:
