For Nuclear Power writers Desirée Proctor and Erica Harrell, calling upon past events to educate future generations was vital not only to the content of the story, but to its very inspiration. "The story is inspired by our mothers' experience trying to Americanize after the Cuban Missile Crisis, when Cubans were attacked in this country for being the 'enemy,'" Proctor and Harrell noted. "We hope that people take away the idea that we shouldn’t fear others for being different; that we shouldn’t automatically try to destroy what we don’t understand. Every alt-history story begins with real history, and Nuclear Power is no different."
October of 1962. The Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union is at its peak when the unthinkable happens: nuclear war. Sixty years later, the remaining 13 states rose from the ashes to form the American Union, governed by the authoritarian Joint Chiefs of Staff and protected by a border wall to keep out nuclear radiation . . . and the individuals who were enhanced by it. Nuclear Power is a darkly poignant alternate history tale that posits the lengths to which a government will go to protect (or deceive) its citizens. When the Joint Chiefs’ dark secrets are revealed, will survivors on both sides of the wall join forces to fight for their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, or will their differences forever divide them?
