If the end of the year doesn't bring the end of the world, you might want to celebrate by looking back at January's Apocalypse issue. With a nod to the supposed Mayan prophecy (and not wanting to dawdle in case it was, well, correct), we devoted the month to the end of days, with apocalyptic visions from eight international writers. The possible scenarios incuded nuclear snowfall and a second great flood, the death of God and life at warp speed, with each story's conclusion truly The End. As are all our back issues, this one's archived in perpetuity—which would appear to be continuing.
