*Ron will share his ideas on wilderness, the green scare, miserabilism, pirate radio, resistance, visionary thinking, utopia and the art of demanding the impossible. His past books include: Gone To Croatan: Origins of North American Drop-Out Culture; Sounding Off: Music as Subversion/Resistance/Revolution; Seizing the Airwaves; Surrealist Subversions, and Creating Anarchy. His latest book, *Swift Winds* (Eberhardt Press, 2009) is a backpocket compendium of outrageous ideas, subversive tracts, mutinous manifestos, spitfire rants, polemical broadsides, incendiary poems and utopian visions. This volatile mixture is strategically aimed at countering authoritarian thinking with the surreal laughter of the insurgent imagination in flight. Currently, he is involved as a co-editor (with Andrea Langlois and Marian van der Zon) of an anthology scheduled for a 2010 release by New Star Press, to be entitled, *Islands of Resistance: Pirate Radio in Canada*.

Very excited about Ron's talk. I just got his new book, and its awesome. There will likely be a new zine or two from me, although no guarantees what...
