William Forstchen’s novel, Pillar to the Sky tells the story of a world sinking into apocalypse, which can only be saved by a radical and terrifying experiment. This is a fascinating, fiercely passionate, well-honed thriller full of innovative insights, suspense and cutting edge science. I highly recommend it. (Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Impact and The Codex on the works of William R. Forstchen)
Civilization slides into the abyss of a new dark age in this horrifying apocalyptic novel. Forstchen has put Bin Laden’s dream on paper and, in the process, taken civilization straight to the rack. (Stephen Coonts, author of The Assassin on the works of William R. Forstchen)

One Year After: A Novel Book
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.
