Nuclear Romance, a new novel about nuclear power

August 3, 2011 § 1 Comment

In Nuclear Romance, a debut novel by New York journalist and writer Abby Luby, the tragic death of a 7-year old girl – after swimming at a beach across from a nuclear power plant – sets off a chain of events that involve a sports journalist, an anti-nuclear activist, a grieving mother and her son.A young woman reporter falls prey to a callous plant executive whose job depends on keeping the multi-billion dollar nuclear corporation viable. Set in the US Northeast, the terrifying story that unravels the cause of the girl’s death coincides with growing local anti-nuclear sentiment.  The tension escalates after highly radioactive steam escapes from the plant, forcing a mass evacuation.

This novel grips readers’ imaginations with the tension and fear that surround many of today’s nuclear power plants, especially powerful in the aftermath ofJapan’s recent and still unfolding nuclear disaster.

Nuclear Romance will be published in eBook format in September, 2011 by Armory New Media, a digital book publisher based inConnecticut.

    Art imitating life,chicken vs. egg, fiction vs non fiction. Is this book a retrospect or prophecy? How much humanity does our technology require.
