One Second After.

It's probably been mentioned, but ONE SECOND AFTER by William R. Forstchen is outstanding. Basic premise: Unknown 3rd party biffs several nukes above the Ionosphere, setting up a massive EMP that blows North America back to the high middle ages, technologically speaking. If it had anything to do wit...

I'm thinking time is growing short...

Re: In Technology Built For Longevity

Re: In Technology Built For Longevity

So long as nobody chopped them up for jewelry, dropped them in the Mariana Trench or chucked them into a blast furnace, they'd last forever and wouldn't deteriorate.
