* Sam Lipsyte's "The Gunderson Prophecy" (short story, non-genre, humor)

Senseless life-story of a playboy & charlatan with family name of Gunderson. He is sort of convinced the world is about to end in 6 years ... oops, in a few months, etc. Wants to use this prophecy racket to earn some money - via lectures, TV shows, etc. Just when he has managed the promise of some cash from a rich benefactor, sky falls - at least on him! There are occasional references to holographic avatars & outer planets, but is generally non-genre.

Fact sheet.
