The End of the World - Free Today Only! Jan. 7th

Hello Everyone,

My contemporary fantasy/mystery novella The End of the World is available as a free download today only (Saturday, Jan. 7th). Here's a little about it:



Description:

Are you prepared for what comes next?

Accustomed to a life of cosseted seclusion at home with his parents, Valentine is suddenly faced with making his own way in the world. His new life is quickly upended, however, when he's mugged at gunpoint. Finding shelter at a mysterious inn run by the dour Mrs. Anna, he soon encounters a Bosnian woman with a hole where her stomach used to be, an American entrepreneur with a scheme to implant televisions into people's foreheads, and a Catholic priest who attempts to lure him down inside a kitchen sink. Then things start getting strange...

In this story based loosely around the state of Bardo from The Tibetan Book of the Dead - an intermediate state where the dead arrive prior to rebirth - dying is the easy part. Getting out of Bardo and returning to the land of the living is a far more perilous proposition, and unless you know what you're doing...you might never leave.

"Riotously Funny."
--Amazon Review

"Like Douglas Adams "Hitchhiker's" only better."
--Amazon Review

"The End of the World is a brilliant, intelligent tour de 'farce' delivered well-wrapped in a cutting wit so slyly subtle that the reader will return again and again out of sheer appreciation for the dialogue of its exceptional characters."--Amazon Review

"Bizarre yet familiar, heart-warming yet chilling, this book keeps you reading, makes you laugh and also makes you think about life and your effect on it."
--Amazon Review

An Odd, yet Oddly Touching Tale of Life, Death, and the Space In-Between by Award-Winning Author Andrew Biss

Available at:

Amazon UK: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004RZ26E2
Amazon US: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004RZ26E2

Thanks for reading this and if sounds interesting to you, I hope you'll give it a try!

Best wishes,

Andrew Biss
