Praise

"A frequently hilarious traipse through the bizarro netherworld of millennial and utopian subcultures."
Washington Post Book World

"Apocalypse Pretty Soon is a funny must-read for anyone looking for a respite from doom-and-gloom offerings currently on the bookstore shelves."
Chicago Tribune

"Funny, unsettling, crank-packed…an all-American take on the looming exclamation point at the end of history."
Entertainment Weekly

"Heard is an engaging writer: witty, not snide, not superior…turn to the chapter titled ‘Death, Be Not in My Face,’ read it, and I think you will agree: This is not simply silly stuff; this is the human comedy."
–Katherine Powers, Boston Globe
