R.I.P. Jerry Ahern (Survivalist, Defender...)
I just found out today that Jerry Ahern, author of The Survivalist series as well as tons of other men's fiction, has succumbed to cancer.
I became friends with Jerry on Facebook and he finally agreed to an interview, which I had planned to post here on the 2-Fisted Blog, but he was hospitalized shortly after and it never came to pass.
From what I could tell, he was a stand-up guy. I know I, and millions of other red-blooded males, sure enjoyed his writing over the years. I don't regret missing the chance for the interview so much as I regret just not getting to know and interact with him more than I did.
I hope you're in a better place now, Jerry.
There is an interview snippet from another blogger here.
And I just found this interview on Survival Weekly, which covers some of the ground I wanted to.
