Summary

In this humorous apocalyptic comedy, Australian bureaucrat, James Cook, is sent to Ayer’s Rock in the Outback to sort out what seems to be a labor dispute. There, he discovers that The National Park and the local airport have been shut down by the aboriginal community. Aided by the enticing anthropologist, Pam, and the local elder, Billy, James goes on walkabout to Kata Djuta, hoping to gain insight into the celestial event the elders and shamans say is about to take place.

Eta Carinae, has suddenly begun to brighten in the sky and most astronomers think it’s a supernova. The elders think it’s something even more, and James has the not-so-unwelcome suspicion that everything he’s ever known is about to change forever.

Brian d’Eon’s comedy chops are on full display in this hilarious novella that mixes a first contact comedy with cultural clash, along with adventure, romance, and of course, the end of the world.
