Bill Gurstelle on History Channel October 31


Book Cover Catapult
If you will be at home on Halloween, there’s something on television you might enjoy. Tune into the History Channel’s “Man Moment Machine” show at 9:00 Central Time (but check local listings in your area). Bill Gurstelle will be on the show, providing background on the Man (Alexander the Great), the Moment (the Siege of Tyre in 334 BC), and the Machine (a catapult). Should be a good show! – Link.

Pictured here… Ludgar, the catapult Bill made hurling two flaming softballs simultaneously, and the other is a cover shot of his catapult book.

    BIll does some great work. His other book, Backyard Ballistics, is wonderful as well. I worked at Barnes and Noble some few years back and I was in charge of pushing a book for the month and I choose Backyard Ballistics. Sold 120+ copies of the book that month. Truely there is a desire for books on how to make things that fling poptatoes out of pipes!
