Summary: The world does not end on December 21, 2012. It ends in 2020–give or take. Read Strieber’s Author’s Note at the end of the novel for the real stimulation.
This is not a good review. However, if you follow reviews in TGBlogger, you know the difference between following ideas and following authors. TGBlogger follows ideas. Fresh ideas. New ways of expressing old ideas. If it is not new, or if it is not a new way of looking at an old idea, why bother? Whitley Strieber’s novel, BEYOND 2012: THE OMEGA POINT fits into this why-bother-category and would be regulated to that category-and hence, not appear in this journal-if it were not for his extensive Author’s Note at the end of the novel.
