In a small North Carolina town, one man struggles to save his family after America loses a war that will send it back to the Dark Ages. Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real.
In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe, and Testament, this book, set in a typical American town, is a dire warning of what might be our future and our end. The Kurzweil Accelerating Intelligence newsletter concisely covers relevant major science and technology breakthroughs (daily or weekly) via e-mail.
I loved how Forstchen brought me in to the lives of those in his small mountain college town, made me experience all of their fears, losses, and small triumphs.

We talked with JA Pitts recently at a birthday celebration for Portland science fiction author Jay Lake. Sed aliquam, urna ut sollicitudin molestie, lacus justo aliquam mauris, interdum aliquam sapien nisi cursus mauris. Forstchen now brings us a story which can be all too terrifyingly real, a story in which one man struggles to save his family and his small North Carolina town after America loses a war, in one second, a war that will send America back to the Dark Ages — A war based upon a weapon, an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). I loved the characters, even the ones I didn’t like, and I got pretty attached to their stories.


I could easily imagine myself being forced to rethink how to live without all of my gadgets and luxuries that I generally take for granted (especially my iPhone & iPad, hot showers, and-OMG-my Keurig!). There were heart wrenching decisions that had to be made, lives that were lost, and total shockers that really made my mouth drop open. The EMP fries every computer in the country, every modern car engine, every modern airplane, the computers that control the power grid, every cell phone, broadcasting station and every industry dependent on computers. We talked with Pitts on this program last December about the first book in his Black Blade urban fantasy series, Black Blade Blues. My head was spinning throughout the book as new problems arose…like lack of critical medication for diabetics and those with mental illnesses.
The book centers around blacksmith Sarah Beauhall, who has a night job as a props manager for a low-budget movie, and spends her free time fighting in a medieval re-enactment group. Forstchen did what needed to be done for the sake of the story, even when the outcome was dire or severe. That’s dedication! It’s just been released in paperback, and we talked with the author recently by phone.
As Honeyed Words open, she is still processing the revelation that dragons are real and live among us as shapeshifters; in fact, it is they who have been the secret masters of our world from time immemorial.

Forstchen about an incident that supposedly took place when a Russianpilot defected in a MiG fighter. As Sarah tries to make her way in this new world, she discovers just how little she knows of reality. When experts looked over the plane, there were shocked to see much of the electronics were baed on old-fashioned vacuum tubes instead of modern computer chips. Fairies and dwarves and giants abound, the fault line of the Pacific Northwest is rife with ancient Norse magic. They jeered until one person pointed out that a fighter so equipped would be immune to an EMP that would fry computerized components in a western counterpart. Now she discovers she is being spied on by mysterious siblings Skella and Gletts,  who prove to be the sympathetic pawns of ambitious but foolishly greedy dwarves, and once again Sarah finds herself compelled to protect an unsuspecting world while allied with those who should by all rights be her enemies.
