9780446519939: Aftermath

The stunning debut novel from the star of "Star Trek: The Next Generation". The United States of 2019 is a very different place. Economic depression, an enormous earthquake, and the assassination of a black President-elect have turned the country into a war zone. Four people, each as different and troubled as the next, are the nation's last hope. But can they overcome the devastation and build a new world?

About the Author:

Levar Burton achieved lasting international fame at age 19 when, while attending USC on full academic scholarship, he won a landmark role as the enslaved African youth Kunta Kinte in Alex Haley's Roots . Since then he has produced, directed, written for and appeared in numerous award-winning television series and films - his most popular series role being that of Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge, chief engineer of the starship Enterprise, for the full run of Star Trek: The Next Generation . Mr. Burton has also been host and co-executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning educational show Reading Rainbow since the early 1980s. He lives in Los Angeles.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Actor Burton (Roots, Star Trek: The Next Generation, etc.) debuts with a novel set in a chaotic 21st-century US, where the assassination of the first African-American president and a disastrous earthquake centered on the New Madrid fault have precipitated social and economic collapse and civil war. Dr. Rene Reynolds has invented the Neuro-Enhancer, a device that helps the body boost its immune system to banish all disease. But rival Dr. Randall Sinclair--he has ties to monstrous fascist militias who roam the countryside, abducting nonwhite citizens for use as involuntary organ donors--having decided that the Neuro-Enhancer must be suppressed kidnaps Rene and her prototype device. As a side effect of testing the machine on herself, however, Rene finds she has psychic powers and yells for help telepathically. Three people hear the summons and are drawn into a rescue attempt: derelict and former NASA scientist Leon Cane; orphan Amy Ladue (she thinks the voice in her head is her mother's); and Lakota shaman Jacob Fire Cloud, whose vision quest has shown him how White Buffalo Woman will prevent the terrible Great Shaking. Set forth in assured prose, with a well-developed plot permeated by an almost palpable sadness at the folly of race hatred. With this wise, above-average debut, Burton is poised to tackle bigger, more ambitious themes. (TV satellite tour) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
