Imagine waking up one day to find that the lights no longer work. Imagine that your TV won't turn on, your telephone no longer rings, and you have to take the stairs because the elevator is stuck.
Now imagine you were on your way to work, and your car died...
What is the modern world, without technology?
What chaos would ensue?
This is the world of S.M. Stirling's Dies the Fire, a world in which we meet not Apocalyse, persay, but The Change. Where will you be when it hits? What will you do when suddenly there is no such thing as the Global Village anymore? While Stirling's story takes place in rural Oregon, this story, concurrent to the events in the novel, will take place in a major urban center... it will take place in New York City.
I'm looking for normal people, with normal lives, about to enter anything but normal times. Interested?
