VIRTUAL BLOG TOUR FOR “APOCALYPSE ALL the TIME”
Stay tuned throughout this month and see how other bloggers view and rate Mr. Atkinson’s book, Apocalypse All the Time. The book came out yesterday and there will be a month long discussion of this book. Apocalypse All the Time was published on January 1, 2017.
Doesn’t it seem as if someone issues a new apocalypse prediction every week? Y2K? The Mayan apocalypse? The Rapture? Doesn’t it seem endless? As opposed to the traditional trend of post-apocalyptic literature, Apocalypse All the Time is post-post-apocalypticism.
Marshall is sick of the apocalypse happening on a weekly (if not daily) basis. Life is constantly in peril, continually disrupted, but nothing significant ever happens. The emergency is always handled. Always. Marshall wants out; he wants it all to stop . . . one way or another. Even if he has to end the world himself.
Apocalypse All the Time explores humanity’s fascination with the end times and what impact such a fascination has on the way we live our lives.
I liked the story! I have read all of the End Times books and some of the book, Revelation, from the Bible. The reason I haven’t read it all is because it frightens me! As a result, I can relate to Marshall, the main character. That is as far as I going to go, because it is a page turner, beware you won’t being putting it down any soon after you start reading the book.
LITERARY WANDERLUST TO OFFER NEW BOOK FROM DAVID S. ATKINSON
Denver, CO, December 1, 2017—Literary Wanderlust announced today it will publish a second work from humorist David S. Atkinson, a follow-up to his 2015 publication, Not Quite So Stories.
Apocalypse All the Time is the story of Marshall, a man who is sick and tired of an apocalypse occurring every week. Everyone is obsessed with the possibility of the end of the world; life is constantly in peril but nothing significant ever happens. The emergency is always handled, over and over again. Marshall wants it all to stop . . . one way or another. Even if he has to end the world himself.
“Apocalypse All the Time combines absurdum, science fiction, and sly commentary on our current neuroses induced by the twenty-four news cycle to create something reminiscent of Orwell, Kafka, and Swift, while being entirely its own animal. By turns funny, maddening, and genuinely insightful, it’s one of the most imaginatively weird and original books I’ve read in a while,” says Joseph Hirsch, author of The Bastard’s Grimoire and other novels.
