Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) August 19, 2014
On the 100th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, a dissident group takes over a missile base and launches an intercontinental ballistic missile at New York, causing a chain reaction of thermonuclear and biological attacks and reprisals. The remote Australian community of Cooktown emerges from the holocaust relatively unscathed and struggles to survive in the nightmarish future of G. A. Mohr’s “2045” (published by Xlibris).
Inspired by Nevile Shute’s “On The Beach,” Mohr tells the story of one of the small Australian towns in the aftermath of Armageddon, showing how the residents plan and establish water, food and energy supplies to ensure their long-term self-sufficiency and survival. They also construct new homes for stranded tourists and new arrivals, refugees of the wastelands who begin a new life in the proverbial oasis. Conflicts arise in their community, but through their shared struggle, the survivors create a new society where the ways of the old world are reformed, giving the next generation a chance at a better future.
“2045” depicts the perils of weapons of mass destruction and how hope can be born from the ashes of yesterday – emerging as a fragile thing that must be protected, lest it vanish in the night. Mohr shows that new beginnings can be found even after the end of the world.
