Just when you thought you&;d accepted your own mortality . . . Everything Is Going to Kill Everybody is bringing panic back. Twenty illustrated, hilariously fear-inducing &;essays reveal the chilling and very real experiments, dangerous emerging technologies, and terrifying natural disasters that soon could&;or very nearly already did&;bring about the end of humanity. In short, everything in here will kill you and everyone you love. At any moment. And nobody&;s told you about it&;until now:
 
&;   Experiments in green energy like the HiPER, which uses massive lasers to create a tiny &;contained&; sun; it&;s an idea that could save the world if it doesn&;t consume us all in a fiery fusion reaction first.
&;   Global disasters like the hypercane&;a hurricane so large it could cover all of North America and shoot trailer parks into space!
&;   Terrifying new developments in robotics like the EATR, which powers itself on meat&;an invention in the running for &;Worst Decision Made by Anybody.&;

Baker & Taylor
