Cemetery Dance Publications has announced the publication of The Other End by John Shirley (ISBN: 1-58767-150-6; Hardcover Limited Edition; $40.00 retail price), a brand new novel that offers readers the chance to answer the question: what if you could design your own Judgment Day?”As John’s first teacher I’ve been waiting a long time for him to reach his full amazing potential. With this book he breaks the tape.” –Harlan Ellison
Description: Do you ever think that the human world is hopelessly out of balance, blighted, off track, and the only hope is some kind of apocalypse, some sort of end of the world that would allow the human race a new beginning, a fresh start without … ah … certain people?
You know you don’t want the usual “End Times” scenarios that are predicted and ballyhooed by hysterical, superstitious people.
But when you look around at the world as it standsâ€¹you see Darfur, you see Somalia and the Congo, you see the modern slavery of indentured servitude, you see children sold into prostitution, you see millions starving, you see mindless wars, you see people you care about dying of Alzheimer’s and children dying of cancer and millions of others trapped in schizophrenia or living lives of media-hypnotized desperation …
You see a planet beset by a loss of biodiversity, a depleted ozone layer, slash-and-burn destruction of rainforests, and the onset of global warming …
And you know that because the population of the Earth is increasing, it’s only going to get worse. This can’t go on; something has to change.
What if you could change it? What if you could design your own Judgment Day?
What if there were another end rather than one based on childish interpretations of religion, bias, bigotry, exclusion, and cultural narrowness?
What if Judgment Day came for the whole world and offered true justice?
It would be The Other End.
