About the Author
Praise For Everything Is Going to Kill Everybody: The Terrifyingly Real Ways the World Wants You Dead…
“A bold, terrifying read that goes down smooth thanks to a crisp infusion of humor. Thanks to this book, I can now aspire to dying in cooler ways than I ever thought possible. F**k you, old age. I’m holding out for a megatsunami.”
—Daniel H. Wilson, author of How To Survive a Robot Uprising
“The book is proof that the ridiculous and the horrible are joined at the hip and will never be separated; in a universe that seems to continually be thinking up new ways to kill us, Brockway knows there is but one rational response: to point at it and laugh.”
—David Wong, author of John Dies at the End
“There has never been a hipper Prophet of Doom. Irreverently entertaining and terrifyingly accurate, the probability of our future death has never been more fun.”
—Michael Largo, author of Final Exits: The Illustrated Encyclopedia of How We Die
“This book is hilarious. As if I wasn't already afraid the leave the house. What's that? Brockway suggests the apocalypse doesn't knock? What if I cower under a desk? Well, damn. I might as well have another nacho.”
—Garth Sundem, author of The Geeks’ Guide to World Domination
