Recently wrote an article for the work blog with a few recommendations for 2015 post-apocalyptic novels:
As a kid, I spent quite a bit of time worrying about global nuclear annihilation. I was seven when the made-for-TV movie The Day After aired, too young to process much of the plot but old enough to remember the images of people being reduced to skeletal outlines by the flash of nuclear explosions. I also remember the movie ending with a chilling disclaimer: “The catastrophic events you have just witnessed are, in all likelihood, less severe than the destruction that would actually occur in the event of a full nuclear strike.”
Yeah, thanks for the childhood trauma, ABC.
