The Great End of the World Sale

A BBC news report this morning said that 1 in 10 Brits are concerned that the world will end tomorrow (21st Dec 2012) as seemingly predicted by the Mayans. The prediction that the world will end in 2012 is the most widely-disseminated doomsday tale in human history, thanks to the Internet, Hollywood and an ever-eager press corps.

Recent hurricanes, unrest in the Middle East, solar flares, mystery planets about to collide with us - all "proof" of what the ancient Mayans knew would come to pass on 21 December 2012.

And all around the world people are starting to panic - in Russia the Minister of Emergency Situations had to issue a denial that the world would end, and in America survivalists  - many of whom use the term "prepper" - have been busy preparing for all manner of cataclysm. Authorities in the village of Bugarach in the South of France have barred access to a mountain where some believe a UFO will rescue them this coming Friday. And NASA can't wait for Dec 21st to come and go - The space agency said it has been flooded with calls and emails from people asking about the purported end of the world. And only this morning  Police in China have carried out further arrests of members of a doomsday cult for spreading rumours about the imminent end of the world, state media say.

I've got to admit that if it does end I'll be more than a bit pissed off because it means I'll miss out on seeing Django Unchained - they really should have special advance screenings just in case the world does end. However here at the Archive we are more thoughtful and suggest you buy a copy of Granny Smith Investigates so that you'll get a chance to enjoy the story before the big bang.

Worried about the end of the world? Then lose yourself in the world of Granny Smith geriatric detective-the eBook is available now worldwide via the Amazon kindle store.

“It’s Miss Marple on steroids.”

A brutal murder in a small Welsh village and the police are stuck without a clue. With no motive and no real suspect the investigation soon grinds to a halt. Enter Mary Alice Smith, otherwise known as Granny Smith, the rock music loving, pipe smoking, chaos causing amateur sleuth with a difference.

Granny has a talent for mayhem and soon those talents are put to good use as our intrepid pensioner starts the unravel the case, which finds her provoking Chief Inspector Miskin as she comes up against a full scale police investigation, proving that you’re never too old to make a nuisance of yourself and that sixty three is actually the new twenty three.

Murder's never been so much fun.
