The world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday. Just before dinner, according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies written in 1655. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.
Put New York Times bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett together . . . and all Hell breaks loose.
You all also have the task of helping me decide where to host this. We should keep doing this over lunch. Just keep in mind that not everyone can afford expensive lunches, not everyone likes very specific cuisines (meaning, it's best to find a place with a diverse menu for varying tastes), and, if we have a large enough group, we may need a reservation, if the location allows for one to be made. So make your thoughtful suggestions below! Also feel free to keep suggesting books for the list. See you all there!
