[ Literature -> Article ] - More info on Company: Permuted Press | More info on Literature: It's Only Temporary

Jacob, from Permuted Press, dropped by to let us know about a new apocalyptic book in the works. Entitled It's Only Temporary, the book is scheduled for release on the first of July.
Permuted Press is pleased to announce that the official website for Eric Shapiro's apocalyptic tale It's Only Temporary is now available.

Scheduled for release July 1, 2005, It's Only Temporary has already received rave reviews from several well-known authors. The official website features cover art, praise for the book and, best of all, chapter 1 of Eric's dark roadtrip through armageddon is available free! Visit the site now for a taste of what bestselling author James Rollins called "an apocalyptic masterpiece":

Enjoy!
I read the first chapter...it's more Armageddon (Bruce Willis) style rather than post-apocalyptic. There's a giant meteor heading to Earth, and there's only 10 hours left. Give it a go if you're interested.

What is Bruce Willis-style post-apocalyptic? He was only in Armageddon and 12 monkeys that were post-apocalyptic. Armageddon is more like disaster-style post-apocalyptic...

Sorry..I meant in contrast to post apocalypstic style. Armageddon wasn't really PA in style, it was more of Impending Disaster style i guess you could say.

"Armageddon (Bruce Willis) style rather than post-apocalyptic."

I don't see how that could be misinterpreted. Did I miss an edit?

It does appear that they all die. Yay. Woo. Preparing for death is so much more interesting than avoiding it. icon_drunk

I'm expecting that the .002% survival rate will apply to the main character or something and it'll be all "LOLZ PLOT TWIST!!!!"

Then, for the sake of his species survival, he must breed with the cockroaches and children's entertainers ! Get the duct tape and the pornographic magazines ! Seriously though, I suspect you are correct. Few authors kill off their protagonists, or enjoy it (with the occasional author loathed, reader adored irritant exception). icon_drunk

I think he will die... But then again I probably would have taken a long walk off a pier if this was actually going to happen.
