Red face end of the world 2012 type books?

Hi guys!

I am looking for a good book to read about the end of the world coming, the apocolypse, 2012 mayan prophecies, atlantis ... so not post apocolyptic but an apocolypse coming.

I have read Decipher by Stel Pavlo and it is absolutely my favourite book! I am currently reading Raising Atlantis. So those types of books... any ideas?

The supposed 2012 end of the world isn't happening. See the 2012 Wikipedia article on why.

Come on, don't spoil the fun. My daughters eighteenth birthday is December 21, 2012. If that's not the end of the world, I don't know what is.

Check out Steve Alten's "Domain." I liked most of it... then it spiralled into heavy SF-approaching-fantasy and got too weird, lol.

Doesn't matter, it's just for fun! Who doesn't love a few car crashes, sword fights, dopey sex, God, and nuclear explosions? Especially if they get all rolled up into one story?

But the X-Files said that's when the alien invasion and all the rest of the stuff was supposed to come to a head! (Or at least had the Cigarette Smoking Man hint at it really heavily.)

I really enjoyed Rogue Wave by Boyd Morrison. It's a very tense (in a good way!) read.

From the author's website:
Quote:
Honolulu, Hawaii. Tourist Paradise. Hell on Earth.

Over the remote central Pacific, an airliner halfway through its Memorial Day flight from Los Angeles to Sydney is suddenly rocked by a massive explosion. Despite the pilot’s valiant efforts, the blast sends it plummeting into the ocean, leaving no witnesses to the fireball.

Kai Tanaka, the new and untested director of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Honolulu, notes a minor seismic disturbance in that region but doesn’t make the connection with the lost airplane. There’s no reason to be worried about his wife, who is the manager of a luxury hotel, or his daughter, who is enjoying the sunny holiday morning at Waikiki with friends.

But when all contact with Christmas Island and its 3000 inhabitants is lost, Kai is the first to realize that Hawaii faces a catastrophe of epic proportions: in one hour, a series of massive waves will wipe out Honolulu. He has just sixty minutes to save the lives of a million people, including his wife and daughter…

Go read some non-fiction books on peak oil or environmental degradation. They are far more terrifying than anything else you will come across.
