EmP – Nuclear Spring, Author TD Barnes

This interview with Thornton D. (TD) Barnes is about “EmP – Nuclear Spring,” the sequel to Mr. Barnes’ popular fiction book, “EmP–Nuclear Winter.”

EmP – Nuclear Spring commences after four years have passed since the fateful EMP attack and the nuclear bombs that followed, destroying 90% of the earth’s population. For the first time since their subterranean lifestyle began, the survivors are able to come out of the Yucca Mountain underground complex initially constructed to store nuclear waste. They find themselves under surveillance by Islamic activists of the Islamic Brotherhood who survived in Central America. The Brotherhood is moving into Nevada to take control of the Hoover Dam, which gives the Brotherhood control of the Colorado River and the electricity it generates for the western United States.

Both the Brotherhood and the survivors in the mountain realize the jet stream is returning the fallout of the nuclear winter back to the region. Both must secure food and supplies to carry them through the return of the fallout. The survivors in the mountain repel attacks on the mountain by the Brotherhood and enter the next phase of nuclear winter prepared to battle the Islamic Brotherhood and drive them from the region.

TD Barnes, author and entrepreneur, was raised on ranch at Dalhart, TX, graduated from Mountain View High School, Oklahoma, enlisted in the Army and served in Army Intelligence in Korea. He attended and graduated numerous electronics schools in Army air defense missiles and radar at Fort Bliss TX. He served in Germany, attended OCS at Fort Sill OK. He became a field engineer at the NASA High Range facility in Nevada for the X-15, XB-70, Lifting Bodies, and Lunar landing Vehicles. He was a participant in the NERVA project at Jackass Flats NV (Area51SpecialProjects.com), on CIA special projects at Area 51, worked on Project A-12 Blackbird Oxcart, and was on the exploitation team assigned to study a captured Russian MiG aircraft and radar systems, assisted in the genesis of the Navy’s Top Gun program, and the USAF Red Flag program, and on the team initiating development of stealth technology.
