For the Record': 'One Second After' More Fact Than Fiction


William Forstchen wrote the New York Times best-seller, "One Second After," a novel that examined life in a small mountain town in North Carolina after an electromagnetic pulse attack.

The book inspired millions of Americans to take the idea of an attack on the homeland more seriously and to prepare for the possibility of a national disaster.

Forstchen decided to write the novel after meeting with a former speaker of the House who explained how the threat of an EMP attack on the U.S. is far from fiction.
