The development of the atomic bomb not only changed war strategy but also American life. As Americans faced doomsday fears during the atomic age of the 1960s and 1970s, Bowling Green State University professor and writer Wendell Mayo watched his father work on nuclear power for deep space travel at NASA’s Lewis Research Center (now the John Glenn Space Center) in Cleveland. In his latest book, Survival House, Mayo addresses the impact and legacy of “the collective mind of doom” through ten short stories. Meet the author and learn more about his fifth short story collection during a meet and greet at Gathering Volumes bookstore.
