More About One Year After by William R. Forstchen
 
 
 
Overview
New York Times bestselling author William R. Forstchen brings a sequel to his hit novel One Second After. Months before publication, One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at the dangers of EMPs. An EMP is a weapon with the power to destroy the entire United States in a single act of terrorism, in a single second; indeed, it is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. One Second After was a dire warning of what might be our future...and our end. Now, One Year After returns to the small town of Black Mountain, and the man who struggled so hard to rebuild it in the wake of devastation-John Matherson. It is a thrilling follow-up and should delight fans in every way.

At the start of bestseller Forstchen’s stirring sequel to 2009’s One Second After, 730 days have passed since EMP weapons destroyed nearly all electronic equipment in the continental U.S. After the initial violence and starvation, the community of Black Mountain, N.C., led by history professor and former colonel John Matherson, now faces a different sort of challenge. The federal government, sheltered in Cold War bunkers in Virginia, has instituted a draft. The new federal district administrator in Asheville offers John a position as major in the Army of National Recovery and a reduction in the Black Mountain draft, if John will help suppress a renegade group in the nearby mountains. John and his people must choose whether to side with their neighbors, painted as just plain folks struggling to survive, or the feds, whom John isn’t sure he can trust. Readers should be prepared for some heavy-handed political commentary, but fans of Forstchen’s historical novels coauthored with Newt Gingrich will be satisfied. Agent: Eleanor Wood, Spectrum Literary Agency. (Sept.)
