Description: Over a ten-year period, intrepid cultural traveler Alex Heard has been sojourning among America's most intensely religious and political believers -- sometimes dark, sometimes joyful, usually bizarre, and very occasionally deadly groups who bring their own all-American spin to the Biblical idea of the apocalypse.

Among the amazing cast of characters encountered: a UFO cult whose members look forward to the mass landing of Angelic Space Brothers in 2001; trembling New Age penitents who fear our polluted planet is bent on taking highly conscious revenge; a born-again Christian determined, on God's orders, to carry a twelve-foot cross across every nation on earth; life-extentionists convinced that if they can only live long enough science will make sure they'll live forever; and a rich smorgasbord of other of our most credulous, paranoid, and/or ecstatic countrymen.

Alex Heard has been in their midst and, in Apocalypse Pretty Soon, he offers a compelling mix of history, reportage, humor, and sociology -- a colorful group portrait of a uniquely weird moment in American life.
