The AmperLanterProof Last Chance Literary Blast for the Endtimes!
Oil is spewing into our waters and European volcanoes spit ash into the skies. Earthquakes spreading like swine flu. The end, clearly, is upon us. So join Featherproof Books, Green Lantern Press, and Ampersand Books for a literary apocalypse kickoff party that would go down
in the history books…if someone were around to write them. Featuring the Five Horsemen (and women), cause for this apocalypse, Four just ain’t enough!
