Comment: Great book on the topic (Score 3, Informative) 182 182

If you like the topic of EMP and how it would affect the society, check this fiction from William R. Forstchen. It's called One Second After and it's written from the perspective of the US being brought to its knees after a terrorist EMP strike and its effects on all societal levels.

Try Ultima 6 or 7.

VMS must die!
