Q: What's it about? A: The end of everything! Literally! How the Universe will end, & what that might look like if we were around to see it. There are five possible scenarios covered in the book: Big Crunch, Heat Death, Big Rip, Vacuum Decay, & Bounce. #EndOfEverythingBook

Q: Do I have to have an astrophysics background to understand it? A: Not at all! It's written for a general audience, by which I mean, I won't assume you have any physics/astronomy background. There are some cool/deep concepts in there, but it's accessible. #EndOfEverythingBook

Q: Where/when can I buy it? A: It's officially out on August 4th, though apparently some stores have shipped it early. You can purchase it wherever you prefer to purchase books -- it doesn't matter much to me. Indie bookstores are always nice though! #EndOfEverythingBook

Q: Will this give me an existential crisis? A: While I can't guarantee ZERO existential crises, I will say the tone of the book is pretty light, & there's an epilogue with a bunch of different perspectives on what it all MEANS. We'll get through it together. #EndOfEverythingBook

Q: What’s with the different covers in different places? A: Different publishers make their own covers — sometimes even different titles! Anyway here’s the UK/Commonwealth cover: nitter.fdn.fr/astrokatie/statu… I think they both look great!

Q: Is it acceptable to gift a book about the ultimate destruction of all reality to a loved one? A: Absolutely! For one thing, it’s got funny bits. Also, you can give it to them saying “I will love you to the end of the universe”, which, while perhaps not true, is very romantic.
