Taylor Negron

The best thing about the end of civilization will be… People can be themselves without pretense. You won’t have to be polite to your pot dealer.

The worst thing about the end will be…
There may be no gravity or bagels.

What should an average New Yorker do with the time remaining? Take Instagrams of your head exploding with the hipstergram/sepia effect.

Taylor Negron’s Mayan Countdown: Stories for the End of the World happens Thu 13.

Emily Heller

The best thing about the end of civilization will be…
We never have to figure out how to talk people into solar power.

The worst thing about the end will be…
no more halloumi cheese.

What should an average New Yorker do with the time remaining? Something you’ve never done before and something you loved to the max. I’m going to  emotionally connect with other people and dance to Robyn (the the max).

Emily Heller cohosts an end-of-the-world themed The Afterlife on Fri 21.
