Re: One Second After, by William R. Forstchen

Another nail in the coffin of the traditional publishing industry was the 1979 Thor Tool vs IRS court case. It had the side effect of making purchasing for public libraries an order of magnitude more frustrating because now items were going out of print (out of stock) at a faster rate than the institutional purchase cycle (annual budget for most, 2 year cycle for some)
Effects[edit]
The Thor decision caused publishers and booksellers to be much quicker to destroy stocks of poorly-selling books in order to realize a taxable loss. These books would previously have been kept in stock but written down to reflect the fact that not all of them were expected to sell.[2]

EMP.... I'm certain this was an autocorrect error... very funny though... Made me think of Zombie EMT's :lol:
Yeah, something causing all the EMT's to simultaneously go berserk has potential as the plot for a teen B-movie slasher film. Mayhem with probes and triage scissors. I'm surprised no one's already done one. "rlol"
