Get ready for the Mayan Apocalypse

A (real) Mayan calendar

December 21st 2012, the end of the Mayan Calendar.

I’m getting excited about the run-up to this big date. An awful lot of nonsense is getting spouted about it, of course, but that’s all part of the fun.

I was reminded about the Mayan calendar when I came across this blog post today from Red Hunt Travel, a travel writer  who’s seen real Mayan ruins. Check out the post for a couple of great pictures and interesting info.

Over at is a fun set of facts and speculation about the 2012 Mayan Calendar event.

Of course, there are whole websites devoted entirely to the event, such as  which mines a variety of texts in search of some kind of prediction of apocalypse. covers some of the same ground, and has more adverts, but is well worth a look for the gorgeous travel photographs.

Someone who knows a lot about this subject is Canadian author Elaine Stirling who wrote a short story in verse about the Mayan Apocalypse, where you get to experience what it will really be like from the inside. I liked the story so much I published it as an eBook. If you are interested in the apocalypse then take a look at Elaine’s book. It’s called The Mexican Saga: a poetic journey through the 20-count, priced at a bargain 77p in the UK and 99cents everywhere else. Book blog, The Alternative had this to say about Elaine’s book: “Stirling has created an inspiring epic in less than fifty pages.” — The Alternative
