Books for Good

Featured Local Author---William R. Forstchen

William R. Forstchen (born October 11, 1950 in New Jersey) is an American historian and author who began publishing in 1978 as a contributor to Boys' Life. He received his doctorate from Purdue University and made his debut as a novelist in 1983 with Ice Prophet. 

In March 2009, Dr. Forstchen's novel, One Second After, was published and was on the New York Times best seller list for twelve weeks. This book (first title in the John Matherson trilogy) is very popular in our store since it is set in Black Mountain.  It presents a frightening picture of what might occur following the detonation of an electromagnetic pulse.  One Year After is next and the concluding work of the trilogy is The Final Day.  Forstchen’s most recent book is a sci-fi thriller titled 48 Hours which details earth’s survival after being struck by a solar storm. 

William Forstchen is a Professor of History and Faculty Fellow at Montreat College.  He and his wife, Robin, currently live in Black Mountain.
