The guidelines are:
What?Read at least four books about “the end of the world.” This includes both apocalyptic fiction and post-apocalyptic fiction. There is quite a bit of overlap with dystopic fiction as well. The point being something–be it coming from within or without, natural or unnatural–has changed civilization, society, humanity to such a degree that it radically differs from “life as we now know it.” (Aliens, evil governments, war, plague, natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, hurricanes, depletion of resources, genetic manipulation, etc.)
The challenge will start March 10, 2009 and end October 9, 2009.
