There is a book I was interested in but didn't buy. I remember the cover best, it had a man with a device with three antennas zapping a city block across the street causing it to vanish from reality. The device was described as being able to erase from existence anything it zapped. A similar device was used in The Year of Hell episodes from Star Trek Voyager and the De-Mat gun from Dr. Who.


That would be War of Omission by Kevin O'Donnell, Jr., published in 1982. See Amazon.
