Keith,

Came across a book that may be of interest "Apocalypses" by Eugen Weber ISBN 0091801346 at the local remaindered shop. Talks about all sorts of different apocalyptic / fin de siecle ideas across time. It's a book following from the authors request to produce the 1999 Barbara Frum lecture at the University of Toronto, so I guess it was a tie in to the Millennium roll over.

Some links:

Everything about the game, from the mechanics, to the artwork, to the layout just screams creepy, creepy, creepy at me. I love it.

I'm into the second chapter at the moment and it's pretty interesting. Hope it's of use.

Cheers,
