WAYNESBORO, VA—Imagine a world in which electricity – the lifeblood of modern society – disappears in the blink of an eye. No televisions. No phones. No lights.
Described as “the timeliest book of the year,” the novel World Changer has just been released by former journalist Bill Dolack. Chronicling the first 30 days after a devastating nuclear EMP strike by North Korea, the book offers the fictional account of a family’s attempts to survive in a city where there is no longer a local police or fire department, the hospital has shut down, and armed gangs roam the streets.
Anything with a computer chip was instantly fried when the EMP hit. Credit cards became nothing more than sheets of plastic. Cars stalled in the middle of highways. Jet aircraft fell from the sky.
Protagonist Tom Washburn now faces a world more like the one in which his great-grandparents were raised than the one in which he lived just one day earlier.
Finally, World Changer poses the ultimate question: “How far will you go to protect your family in a grid-down crisis?”
“Nearly every day, the media reports on Kim Jong-un’s saber-rattling and his threats to destroy America,” says Dolack. “World Changer was written based, in part, on congressional testimony that says this type of attack will be so disastrous that nine out of ten Americans will be dead within one year of an EMP.”
And many prominent Americans agree that the threat is real.
“There is no greater plot today than the interests and machinations through which an alliance of forces on the Left and Right are purposely leaving the U.S. open to an EMP attack,” says Alan Keyes, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. under President Ronald Reagan.
“The EMP threat is world-changing,” adds the Rev. Louis Sheldon, chairman and founder of the Traditional Values Coalition. “The Defense Department and think tanks are predicting — should America become the victim of an EMP strike — our casualty rate could be as high as 90 percent!”
World Changer not only sounds the alarm about the danger of an EMP attack, it provides a blueprint on what to do now . . . before it’s too late.
