Here’s your video sneak preview of the July 8 edition of the Mountain Xpress. You might call it the doomsday edition.
That’s because this week’s cover story by Managing Editor Jon Elliston is a profile of Montreat College history professor and prolific novelist Bill Forstchen. His new book, One Second After (Forge Books, 2009), imagines the aftermath of an electromagnetic pulse attack on the United States, and in particular, what it would look like in Black Mountain.
Readers might well come away thinking Forstchen’s goal is to scare the hell out of people, and they’d be right about that, as Forstchen explains in the video clip below. Click here and here for two more video clips.
