'Armageddon only happens once, you know. They don't let you go around again until you get it right'.
People have been predicting the end of the world almost from its very beginning, so it's only natural to be skeptical when a new date is set for Judgement Day.
But what if, for once, the predictions are right, and the apocalypse really is due to arrive next Saturday, just after tea?
You could spend the time left drowning your sorrows, giving away all your possessions in preparation for the rapture, or laughing it off as (hopefully) just another hoax. Or you could just try to do something about it.

Review by Cynara
I picked this up after raves on LT, though my experience with Gaiman's novels has been uneven (at best) and Pratchett was an unknown quantity; I was worried he'd be Fforde-ish; smart, but a little too tee-hee-hee for my jaded sensibilities.Surprise: I enjoyed the heck out of it. I like Gaiman on this sort of ground - devils and angels, the operation of the supernatural in our everyday lives - and I'm encouraged enough to pick up some Pratchett (though friends were about to press the earlier Diskworld novels into my hands anyway). A definite reread and purchase.
