Y2K is coming... again. | 11:21 AM

When I'm a-relaxin', I like to settle down with a historical novel. One that takes me back to a bygone era and immerses me in the sights and sounds of the sepia-tinted past. For instance, this one (by famous friend Kevin Shay), which is set in the waning days of the 20th Century, amongst all that Y2K hoo-hah. Its title is "The End As I Know It" (or TEAIKI, as Kevin seems to be calling it on his blog), and it concerns a puppeteer's mad trek across the country to save his family from the "bug". (Sadly, Kevin's choice of career for his protagonist seems to have pigeonholed him with the Library of Congress.)

Concurrently with the novel, Kevin is releasing a daily journal of nervousness entitled "On This Day Pre-Y2K," which charts the sheer, unadulterated panic with which humanity faced the new millennium. (And then, as Xina would point out, nothing happened.)
