Water jugs? Check. Emergency lantern? Check. Lucy Corin’s One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses? No? What else are you going to read when the end of the world comes? Tonight, pick up a copy of Corin’s dazzling new story collection at McSweeney’s Night of One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses: An Apocalypse Variety Show. Corin as well as Nelly Reifler (Elect H. Mouse State Judge), Justin Taylor (The Gospel of Anarchy, The Apocalypse Reader), and Shelley Jackson will entertain you with tales of doomsday along with music from Julia Weldon and—to lighten the mood a bit—comedy from George Gordon.
