Our favorite pyromaniac, Bill Gurstelle, is back, and just in time for the 4th of July. He’s also here to talk about/excerpt from his latest book, The Practical Pyromaniac. We’re always excited to have Bill onboard, not only ’cause he’s a great guy, an epic maker, and a good writer, but being the pyro that he is, you just never know what he’s fixin’ to immolate. Keeps a person on their toes.

Bill is going to be hanging around for a couple of weeks, bringing us his unique take on things to the site, covering everything from making your own micro-brewed absinthe, to genetically modified super-chilis, to a loving ode to the Nepalese Kukri knife. Oh, and some flamey stuff. Always some flamey stuff.

Please welcome Bill Gurstelle…
