It seems like people are always talking about the end of the world, doesn't it? Y2K, the Mayan Apocalypse, Blood Moon Prophecies, nuclear war, killer robots, you name it. In Apocalypse Any Day Now, journalist Tea Krulos travels the country to try to puzzle out America's obsession with the end of days. Along the way he meets doomsday preppers—people who stockpile supplies and learn survival skills—as well as religious prognosticators and climate scientists. He camps out with the Zombie Squad (who use a zombie apocalypse as a survival metaphor); tours the Survival Condos, a luxurious bunker built in an old Atlas missile silo; and attends Wasteland Weekend, where people party like the world has already ended. Frightening and funny, the ideas Krulos explores range from ridiculously outlandish to alarmingly near and present dangers.
From climate change to nuclear war to the rise of demagogic populists, our world is shaped by doomsday expectations. In this path-breaking book, Alison McQueen shows why three of history's greatest political realists feared apocalyptic politics. Niccol- Machiavelli in the midst of Italy's vicious power struggles, Thomas Hobbes during England's bloody civil war, and Hans Morgenthau at the dawn of the thermonuclear age all saw the temptation to prophesy the end of days. Each engaged in subtle and surprising strategies to oppose apocalypticism, from using its own rhetoric to neutralize its worst effects to insisting on a clear-eyed, tragic acceptance of the human condition. Scholarly yet accessible, this book is at once an ambitious contribution to the history of political thought and a work that speaks to our times.
Over the past five or six weeks, after the dead started coming out of the graves on Deadman's Bluff, the Smith family, who fled the initial onslaught of the undead in Springdale, Ohio, are still journeying the country-side, looking for any place that they could stay to hide from the hordes of undead who are now rampaging all across the country and the world.They find it in the farm of Edward and Claire Dowerton, who take them into their home and treat them like family, but the Smith family knows that even there, Ed and Claire's farm is only a temporary refuge and they eventually are forced to flee, once again, for their very lives to find another "safe haven," from the rampaging "Zombie Apocalypse."

His exceptional imagery effects readers in a way that leaves them chilled and disturbed; causing the kind of behavior that will leave friends asking "what's bothering you," for days afterwards." D.L. Russell, editor of Strange, Weird & Wonderful Magazine ”Author Arnold has a deft touch with horror that will leave a chill in your spine, but without the violence and gore of much modern horror. The stories remind me of Ray Bradbury at his darkest with their ability to play on the difference between what we know might happen and what we want to happen. These are complex tales with layers below the surface enjoyment of a story well written.” Armchair Interviews
Neil Gaiman meets Tarantino Mit ›Apocalypse Now Now‹ hat Charlie Human »ein verrücktes, finsteres, respektloses und wunderbar abgedrehtes Debüt« (Lauren Beukes) geschrieben, das in seiner Heimatstadt Cape Town spielt. Südafrikanische Mythologie + magiebegabte Kopfgeldjäger + Rock’n’Roll-Highschool = punkige Urban Fantasy vom Allerfeinsten. Eigentlich läuft für den 16-jährigen Baxter gerade alles rund. Sein kleines Pornobusiness an der Highschool boomt, die Eltern lassen ihn in Frieden, und er ist über beide Ohren in die zauberhafte Kleptomanin Esmé verliebt. Doch als diese von einem wahnsinnigen Serienmörder entführt wird, laufen die Dinge aus dem Ruder. Zusammen mit dem Kopfgeldjäger Jackie Ronin macht Baxter sich auf die Suche nach ihr und entdeckt hinter dem gewöhnlichen Alltag von Kapstadt eine Schattenwelt der Ungeheuer und Magie. Ein anarchisches, übersteuertes und verdammt witziges Fantasy-Debüt mit Kultbuchpotenzial. Mit ›Apocalypse Now Now‹ und der Fortsetzung ›Kill Baxter‹ macht Charlie Human den ganz Großen der Urban Fantasy – Neil Gaiman, Jim Butcher und Ben Aaronovitch – ernsthaft Konkurrenz.
The ancient Egyptians would have known it as the sixth day of Pachon. The Mayans named it 4 Ahau 3 Kankin. To us it is 21 December, 2012. On this day, it is said, the world will come to an end. This is not the first time we've been told that our time is up. And - touch wood - it probably won't be the last. Religious and secular, past and present - Apocalypse covers each and every one of our prophesized dooms: featuring asteroids, Antichrists, solar flares, Singularities, Utopias, UFOs, Zoroastrians and Zapotecs, to mention but a small few. The result is a thorough history of one the most fascinating threads of our cultural existence: spanning from the first warnings of our ancient ancestors, to the contemporary (yet equally glum) forecasts for our future.
During his 2009 inaugural speech, President Obama described the United States as a nation of "Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus--and nonbelievers." It was the first time an American president had acknowledged the existence of this rapidly growing segment of the population in such a public forum. And yet the reasons why more and more people are turning away from religion are still poorly understood. In Faith No More, Phil Zuckerman draws on in-depth interviews with people who have left religion to find out what's really behind the process of losing one's faith. According to a 2008 study, so many Americans claim no religion (15%, up from 8% in 1990) that this category now outranks every other religious group except Catholics and Baptists. Exploring the deeper stories within such survey data, Zuckerman shows that leaving one's faith is a highly personal, complex, and drawn-out process. And he finds that, rather than the clich? of the angry, nihilistic atheist, apostates are life-affirming, courageous, highly intelligent and inquisitive, and deeply moral. Zuckerman predicts that this trend toward nonbelief will likely continue and argues that the sooner we recognize that religion is frequently and freely rejected by all sorts of men and women, the sooner our understanding of the human condition will improve. The first book of its kind, Faith No More will appeal to anyone interested in the "New Atheism" and indeed to anyone wishing to more fully understand our changing relationship to religious faith.
