That's right, beeches!

They had the reports on EMPs and what they could do, but the congressman didn't think anyone would read a technical report on what that could mean to us. So he gave the report to Forstchen and asked if he could do anything with it to kind of get the word out.
WF: I was in Washington D.C. on the day the 2004 report on EMP was released and saw the complete non-reaction of the mainstream media and the rest of government. I later spoke with the chairman of that committee, Congressman Roscoe Bartlett, who lamented that the problem was that the issue of EMP lacked a constituency of voters who took the topic seriously. He then urged me to write a popular novel to try to get the word out. That was the original motivation, then fueled by the research the work required and the realization on my part of how vulnerable we are to this threat.
