Fifty-five year-old Hack Stansky is convinced that 2001 will be The Year It Finally Happened for the Springfield Heroes, a baseball team who last won the World Series ninety-nine years ago. Sitting in historic Squiggley Field, euphorically awaiting the start of game seven of the series, Hack waxes nostalgic. He regales his son, Ernie, with the coming to America stories of Carlo Squigglini, the Italian immigrant who makes a fortune in the fast food business and becomes the owner of the Heroes, and his own grandfather, Avrum Stanskovich, who escapes the pogroms of Russia and becomes the first of the four generations of Stanskys who live and die with the Heroes. The championship game begins and the life-long dream of Springfield's long-suffering fans edges closer to reality. The near century long drought appears to be over. But what really matters most? Is it winning the championship, or is it remaining loyal to the team even when they lose?

This science fiction book took me over twenty years to do. This book never had a beginning, and it really had no purpose. It was a dream that I had, and I just wrote it down. It was years later when I went on Facebook and, being very outspoken, said a few things that were on my mind, and I should have kept my big mouth shut. And for that, I hurt a girl who, I believed, I kiss in first grade. When I went to my class reunion, I saw a person, and she said she was nobody and she looked straight in my face. Maybe she wasn’t, or maybe she was the one. It was in the next class reunion when I asked a classmate if this person was there. I only gave the first name because I did not know the last name. She gave the name, and I was in tears. I did my research, and I found the one. I made an apology to her, and she might have said it was worth two cents and a crinkle piece of paper. So I made my story science fiction, documentary, romance, fantasy, and humor. I included all when I talked about this girl in the beginning. I made a promise to her that I will not say or make any words to reflect her name on my Facebook page, nor will I do it here. I don’t want to put a strain on her marriage. The second book, it might not talk about the girl, but the third or the last book, I don’t know yet if it will be about her. I hope I can change the ending. Either way, with the ending, it won’t be what you expect, but I gave a little clue in the end of this book. The second book does not say.

From a VICE magazine columnist, “a deeply entertaining—if occasionally horrifying” (Joshua Piven, coauthor of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook) look at how humanity is likely to weather such happenings as nuclear war, a global internet collapse, antibiotics shortages, and even immortality. If you live on planet Earth you’re probably scared of the future. How could you not be? Some of the world’s most stable democracies are looking pretty shaky. Technology is invading personal relationships and taking over jobs. Relations among the three superpowers—the US, China, and Russia—are growing more complicated and dangerous. A person watching the news has to wonder: is it safe to go out there or not? Taking inspiration from his virally popular VICE column “How Scared Should I Be?,” Mike Pearl games out many of the “could it really happen?” scenarios we’ve all speculated about, assigning a probability rating, and taking us through how it would unfold. He explores what would likely occur in dozens of possible scenarios—among them the final failure of antibiotics, the loss of the world’s marine life, a complete ban on guns in the US, and even contact with extraterrestrial life—and reports back from the future, providing a clear picture of how the world would look, feel, and even smell in each of these instances. For fans of such bestsellers as What If? and The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook, The Day It Finally Happens is about taking future events that we don’t really understand and getting to know them in close detail. Pearl’s “well-researched speculations induce daydreams and nightmares and mark [him] as one of his generation’s most interesting writers” (Alec Ross, New York Times bestselling author).
