I’ve spent a lot of time in the back country of Southern France. I even drove up to Rennes-le-Chateau for my book on the Da Vinci Code, but even when I was researching THE REAL HISTORY OF THE END OF THE WORLD, I totally missed the news about the town of Bugarach (really) apparently known as being a psychic vortex and, when the world ends, will be the only place spared. It seems, from the articles I’ve read, that the people who survive will largely be reporters. This should make the post-apocalyptic world interesting. For those who, like me, have missed this, here is a link from The Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/nov/19/bugarach-french-village-survive-mayan-apocalypse
I have radio interviews right up to Dec. 21, so I suppose that I’ll miss this one. However, the nice thing about predicting the End is that there is always another coming up.
