Introduction

Few things hold us with as much morbid fascination as the end of the world. The catchwords include Armageddon, The Apocalypse, The End Of Everything as we know it, or as the Jehovah’s Witnesses might put it, the End of this Present System of Things. How many times have you found yourself wondering just when and how is this supposed to finally happen? Will God rain down fire upon us, as is stated in the Biblical Book of Revelation, or will our own government leaders and their incessant corruptions do us in instead? Will humanity be struck down by an object from space, or by radiation from the sun, or by a nuclear missile? Will we be wiped out like the dinosaurs, with scant traces remaining of who and what we once were left behind for our descendants to piece together? Will we unleash some plague driven by nanotechnology upon ourselves, or merely pollute our skies and water to the point where we can no longer survive on them? The Mayan calendar, at least one of them, has drawn to a close, or so they say, and there are those constant rumors of Planet X looming closer and closer, and then there is the I Ching, and McKenna’s Longwave Theory, and the Web-Bot predictions. According to so many sources, the end is right here, staring us in the face.

I’ll admit; I’ve spent many long hours roaming through conspiracy and end-times forums trying to gauge my own answers, trying to ease my own anxieties and fears by writing stories about The End Of Everything. I’ve written thirty-one works so far, and this doesn’t include a few concepts for novels that I’ve still got simmering on the back burner.

Part of me is afraid, very afraid, of how the end will take place, but another part of me says Let It All Burn Down. Maybe that’s what we need as a species; a good bashing and thrashing to make us realize the enormity of the calamity and carnage we’ve spread upon our Mother Earth. Maybe that’s what it will take for us to realize that we’ve lost our spiritual selves in the mire of materialism and selfishness that surrounds us today. Maybe we can change and make things better, and reach a new level of affinity with our planet, with nature and with ourselves. Is that too much to hope for?

Get ready, dear reader, for The Apocalypse is about to begin.
