Fire Alert: One Foot in the Black by Kurt L. Kamm

With too much of California currently needing to think of little but forest fires, One Foot in the Black (Lulu), Kurt L. Kamm’s self-published novel hits starkly home.

Try, if you can, to overlook the cheesy self-publishing markers that books by POD outfits almost uniformly bring: the 1980s shadowed typography, the occasional underlined text, the inconsistent editing. Ride it out. The writing here is good. The story worth following. The research and the understanding of topic complete.

Those with a strong interest in wildfires in general and those out of California in particular will be riveted, those who enjoy a good, solid old school adventure story will applaud this Wildland Firefighter Foundation-approved novel.
