The symptoms have been studied, and the diagnosis is confirmed: the universe will cease to exist in just 12 hours. But before existence is eradicated, a shopkeeper must complete a sitting room for God; a woman uncovers the Metaphenomena of the Multiverse; an aging super villain will put the finishing touches on his plans for trans-dimensional domination; serious trouble will break out at the New Messiah's Convention in Acton; and a far-fetched fiction author will receive Divine Enlightenment. Will the universe end with a bang, or a whimper . . . or something else entirely, possibly involving a time-traveling Elvis Presley with a sprout in his head?
