End Time is a kick-ass thriller of the near-future political edge; fast-paced and always surprising. This hardball trip to Looking Glass Land is reminiscent of the books of Neil Shulman and Shea/Wilson, and should find an enthusiastic audience.
I am the author of the science fiction novel End Time: Notes on the Apocalypse, available from AK Press (PO Box 40682, San Francisco, CA 94140-0682).
I also write a monthly (more or less) political column, entitled “What’s Left?,” under the nom de guerre “Lefty” Hooligan for Maximum Rocknroll (PO Box 460760, San Francisco, CA 94146-0760).
62 MILE PRESS is reprinting the prescient, near-future thriller END TIME: NOTES ON THE APOCALYPSE by G.A. MATIASZ. Written in a slashing, evocative style, END TIME received rave reviews in underground and small press circles in 1994.

The Kármán Line marks the boundary between the Earth’s atmosphere and outer space, at sixty-two miles above sea level. Sixty-two miles is also the distance, as the crow flies, from Mount Diablo to the Farallon Islands.
