Norman Pandora’s Shadow is a Gunslinger Meets Lucifer’s Hammer story of the post-nuclear world. Norman Johannsen is a fifth-generation shelter dweller who is dispatched on a mission to the surface that will take him across half a continent. He is surprised to discover that the world a few miles away from the decimated landscape surrounding the shelter has healed itself and moved on. Follow him across the new face of America as he discovers new friends, new truths and the wild array of mini-civilizations that evolved after the Mother of all Wars. The real question is; can he save the world from a bunch of deluded generals swimming in centuries’ old glory who have never seen the light of day?
