The Holocaust That Never Happened

In my opinion, there’s nowt more shit-your-knickers scary than nuclear war. I don’t care how many 1970s Public Information Films you’ve seen (I doubt the Stop, Drop, and Roll would work against a fifty-kiloton blast, by the way) the sight of a mushroom cloud in the near-distance would cause any human to go weak at the knees before defecating all over their best Nikes. This article over at Northampton Science Fiction Writers Group looks at nuclear-themed horror.

One of the best series in recent years, Black Mirror has been around for a while in the UK, but it’s new to the US, and will shortly be getting the remake treatment over there. In this article, The NY Times looks at its success, and one of its more common themes: technology gone wrong.
