EVERYTHING IS GOING TO KILL EVERYONEI got an early copy of this book, and it is made of Fucking Awesome. The title tells you everything you need to know. Yes, everything in the world is trying to kill you, as evidienced in this tome that lists many ways the world will probably end. Like, tomorrow. At 3:15pm. Eastern time, of course.

Dig this excerpt:

"Petrov called a halt to the Mutually Assured Destruction, and waited. Seated next to his enormous, steel-clad balls, he stuck by his instincts and waited -- waited to see if everyone and everything he loved was about to be turned to ash by virtue of his hunch. And then it got worse."

Hooo ... and this is non-fiction. You know, the opposite of what I do, and by that I mean Shit That is True. And yes, the above excerpt is from a scenario in which we all almost died during the height of the Cold War. As in, for realz.

Well-written and a ton of fun, it may scare the pee out of you but you'll like it so much you won't mind the wet pants.

This puppy is out April 6, 2010. I got an early copy because I'm just that fucking important.
