Apocalypse Now or Later

Contrary to the dire prognostications of the Bognor Regis Monster Shouter ('Are you getting slaughtered tonight? 'No', 'Well you should, the world is going to end tonight'), I/we are still here and so can read Evan's excellent piece on the lagging in advance between apocalyptic film and the economic crisis. It indicates the complication, which my piece on apocalypse fell into, of 'reading off' from cultural objects - also pointed out by cara mia re John Wyndham getting there first on a world without people.
