I Am Not a Survivalist

I went to GoodReads.com to look up an author and remembered that I was one of them. However, when I looked at my Dashboard, there were four of the eight books that sounded really cool, but, unfortunately, I didn’t write. This kind of thing has happened before where books I didn’t write mysteriously get attributed to me, and most people don’t believe that it was the work of extraterrestrials, but I figured I’d go ahead and write to GoodReads anyway to let them know the score.

Dear GoodReads,

I’ve recently found my author’s dashboard, and two of the titles are not mine, but another Steve McAllister. Unfortunately, there are a few of us, and people often get us confused.

GoodReads-Steve

I did not write “SURVIVAL MEDICINE: Your Guide to Survival Basics, First Aid and the Most Common Medical Issues Encountered In Survival Situations (Survivalist, Safety, First Aid, Emergency, Survival Skills Book 1)”, SURVIVAL: Water is Key: Prepping Guide for the Importance of Water and Your Survival”,SURVIVAL TACTICS: Your Simple Guide to Survival and Prepping for When the SHTF (Survivalist, Safety, First Aid, Emergency, Survival Skills Book 2)”, or “WILDERNESS SURVIVAL: Your Simple Guide to Surviving in the Wilderness Utilizing Your New Bushcraft and Camping Skills (Wilderness Survival, Safety, First Aid, Emergency, Survival Skills Book 4)”.

Can you please remove them from my profile. Thank you.

Steve McAllister

GoodReads was kind enough to add the following disclaimer:
Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.

Even though I didn’t write any books directly about survival, I did write a book about my year and a half long trek across America called The Rucksack Letters, and my experience with the aforementioned aliens called How to Survive an Estralarian Mind Meld. Both of of them speak to surviving the insanity of culture, and you may still want to check one of them out. If nothing else, I can assure they’re funnier than the other Steve’s books.
