THE END AS I KNOW IT Now Available in Paperback

Anchor Books has released the softcover edition of The End as I Know It: A Novel of Millennial Anxiety. It has a great new cover, designed by Helen Yentus.

Look for it at your favorite bookstore. If they don’t have it, ask them what in the world they’re thinking, not carrying this book. But not in a belligerent way. Or you can find it on And apparently, it’s also available for the Kindle. I’ve never actually seen a Kindle, but someone out there must have them—they’re sold out!

In other news, I had a feature called On This Day Pre-Y2K on this site when the TEAIKI hardcover came out. I stopped maintaining it in May; it was time-consuming, and the material gets rather repetitive after a while. But this past December, as the “pre-Y2K” window approached the Y2K rollover itself, I thought it might be interesting to check in on what some of the “doombrood” were saying immediately prior to the dreaded date—and immediately after, as it became clear that civilization had emerged largely intact. So I added some entries for a few weeks in December 1999 and January 2000. It’s not exactly When Prophecy Fails, but you might find it interesting.


That really amazing.!
