From an on-line posting: " EMP is a fictional book that that brings to reality the life of the survivors living underground in the aftermath of an EMP and nuclear attack. Following an EMP attack upon the United States, a contingency plan kicks in to sequester some of the nation s top scientists and their families in the abandoned Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository at Jackass Flats, Nevada. A nuclear exchange that occurs later isolates this group of survivors in a highly technological environment inside the mountain to ensure their survival on a planet that in the timespan of one-second reentered the Stone Age. EMP is a work of fiction because to date the world has never experienced an EMP, electromagnetic pulse attack or a nuclear winter. However, it is just a matter of time before a group or nation of radicals will use such a dreadful device in a terrorist attack on a American city with the same effect as described in this book.
