Permelia Lyttle's Guide to the End of the World
by Jon Robertson
Luray Flitch is a pill-popping recluse who discovers a prophetic Victorian diary, only to learn that the end of the world is just around the corner. He ventures out to warn the world that the end is near, but people keep trying to steal it. With the help of one really terrific dog, he solves a murder mystery, dodges eccentric villains, and races to beat the approaching Apocalypse.
