AMTRAK WARS - then FH, now AH?
The AMTRAK WARS series by Patrick Tilley was written during the mid-late 80s as an FH story about a post-Apocalpytic America where there are 3 main races competing against each other for control of the continent: the highly-advanced, technology-oriented and militaristic Trackers who control Texas and much of the southwest (descended from members of the US armed forces who survived the nuclear war), and who are aiming to re-establish control over the surface thru their heavily-armed wagon trains and way stations; the primitive, tribal Mutes divided into competing bands such as the She-Kargo and D'Troit who roam over the surface of much of the Midwest and Plains states, and are the Trackers' arch-enemy, blamed for causing the nuclear holocaust which destroyed the world, and whose shamans possess extremely powerful magic which controls spiritual and natual forces; and the Iron Masters, a feudal Japanese race who control the eastern seaboard from Maine to Nova Scotia and keep large nos. of Mutes as slaves, and who pathologically hate and fear electricity as the 'Dark Light'.
The premise of the nuclear war underlying the series involves a mutual nuclear exchange between the US and the Soviet Union in 2015, which IIRC initially destroys Philadelphia, then all the other major American cities. Since the USSR no longer exists now, can we regard this particular FH aspect of the AMTRAK WARS' AH context as AH ?
