From the article,
"Though born in Milwaukee, he spent much of his childhood in post-revolutionary China, where he was the godson of Chinese leader Sun Yat-sen. By the time he was twenty-three, he had earned a Ph.D. in Political Science form Johns Hopkins University. Academic though he was, Linebarger helped the army during World War II, organizing a division in psychological warfare for the military and later writing Psychological Warfare based on what he had learned. After the war, in 1947, he returned to Johns Hopkins, where he served as Professor of Asiatic Studies."
Thanks Geoffrey Reiter, I enjoyed it!
I've been going through a small "re-discovery" of the classic fiction that drew me into a love of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Many of the writers I loved have free novels, novellas and stories available at the Kindle store. What if you don't have a Kindle? Well, there is a free PC program called, wait for it, Kindle for PC, that you can use on your laptop or desktop PC. What is that you said? PC's are not for you, you're too busy rockin' a Mac? Well there's an app for that too, Kindle for Mac. So, go download the correct app for your computer and see what's available, it's almost like going to the library and discovering a book on the shelf that you would never have looked for (currently I have some great free classic books on history, swordplay, beer and cheese making, furniture making, and some great fiction hanging out in my Kindle library).
And no, they didn't forget all you Android users, Kindle for Android is available for free too!
Linux users, there isn't an app specifically for you :( - but they did release a Kindle Cloud Reader that you can use when you have access to the internet! :)
