Are you prepared for what comes next?

Accustomed to a life of cosseted seclusion at home with his parents, Valentine is suddenly faced with making his own way in the world. His new life is quickly upended, however, when he's mugged at gunpoint.

Finding shelter at a mysterious inn run by the dour Mrs. Anna, he soon encounters a Bosnian woman with a hole where her stomach used to be, an American entrepreneur with a scheme to implant televisions into people's foreheads, and a Catholic priest who attempts to lure him down inside a kitchen sink. Then things start getting strange...

In this story based loosely around the state of Bardo from The Tibetan Book of the Dead - an intermediate state where the dead arrive prior to rebirth - dying is the easy part.

Getting out of Bardo and returning to the land of the living is a far more perilous proposition, and unless you know what you're might never leave.

"Riotously Funny."
Elizabeth Miller, Amazon Review

"Like Douglas Adams "Hitch hiker's" only better."
James Jenkins, Amazon Review

"The End of the World is a brilliant, intelligent tour de 'farce' delivered well-wrapped in a cutting wit so slyly subtle that the reader will return again and again out of sheer appreciation for the dialogue of its exceptional characters."
The M.A.D. Take, Amazon Review

"Bizarre yet familiar, heart-warming yet chilling, this book keeps you reading, makes you laugh and also makes you think about life and your effect on it."
Valerie Pointon, Amazon Review

"I was sorry when it ended and now have to go back to the longer novel. Highly recommended."
Mace, Amazon Review

Reviews from Amazon:

From the opening few pages this read identifies itself as wacky and a little bizarre. Biss creates dialogue which is witty yet gives one pause for thought every now and again and, in doing so, has established a singular style that whilst borrowing, a little, from others is unique and refreshing.

Here we follow the tribulations of Valentine as he makes that most arduous journey of all - that of life to death and beyond...perhaps! Without doubt there is a Buddhist undercurrent supporting the story but that's all it does and at no time do the characters proselytize about religion. We are asked to look at ourselves in the context of religion and Biss offers us an explicit Christian pitch delivered by Monsignor Dave via the kitchen sink (I did tell you it was bizarre) to balance out the Buddhist thread which runs throughout the book.

The characters Valentine meets at the B&B allow the author to bring other agendas into the story and he does so skilfully, pricking our collective conscience about matters such as, ethnic cleansing, interfering in world affairs and our part in the state this planet is in.
A very interesting read. A great way to pass a few hours and I found my thoughts returning to Mrs Anna's B&B after I closed the last page. It is an intriguing take on death that I thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you for a good tale well told :-)
I read this in one sitting, takes just a few hours to get through. A totally bizarre read right from the start & I hadn't a clue where it would take me. It reminded me a bit of a scary twisted version of Alice in Wonderland, & I heard the Eagles song " Hotel California" enter my head as I was reading! Spooky! I wouldn't say I loved it, but it certainly kept my attention & a book that I will remember. I thought it was well written with a harrowing concept!

Not one to be read last thing at night! ....(which I did!). .... Dare I open the fridge this morning!!
