You might be interested to know that Stewart Brand has recently endorsed a techno-thriller novel about the American nuclear power industry, written by a longtime nuclear engineer (me). This book provides an entertaining and accurate portrait of the nuclear industry today and how a nuclear accident would be handled. It is called “Rad Decision”, and is currently running as a serial at There is no cost to readers.

One thing missing in the nuclear energy debate is a firm grasp of the American nuclear industry today – just what exactly is going on behind the security fence? As a nuclear worker, I can state that few outside the industry have a clear picture of this. Unfortunately TV, movies, magazines and academic books have not captured the real story in a way the general public can understand and appreciate. Things are much different than you might imagine. (Both good and bad.)

“I'd like to see RAD DECISION widely read.” - - Stewart Brand.

I’d like to get more readers for this non-profit, independent project, so if you like what you see, please pass the word along.

20+ years in the nuclear industry.

Interesting. I'm a big proponent of improving nuclear technology and deploying it as much as possible, at least for now.
