Excerpt: Emberverse, or Change World, is a series of post-apocalyptic alternate history novels written by S. M. Stirling. The novels depict the events following "The Change," which caused electricity, guns, explosives, internal combustion engines, and steam power to stop working. Most of the action in the series takes place in the Willamette Valley of Oregon in the United States. The series primarily focuses on how the characters survive the loss of 600 years of technological progress. The original trilogy, Dies the Fire, concerns the conflicts between a Portland-based neo-feudal dictatorship and the free communities of the Willamette Valley, primarily the Wiccan Clan Mackenzie and the Bearkillers. The later tetralogy, The Change, focuses on the now-adult children of the original trilogy's major characters. All the short stories so far are set 50 years after the Change. At the 2009 DragonCon, Stirling said Sony has expressed interest in a series based on Dies the Fire, with each season being one year.
