The comet cometh.

Every time there is a comet, the world goes nuts. All it is, really, is a lump of icy rock floating about in the sky but the doom-mongers love to scare everyone with a new End of the World story.

Well, so do I.

So I need a comet disaster tale in time for the arrival of comet ISON and it has to be more bizarre and more terrifying than anything the doom-mongers can devise.

One small issue. The comet arrives in late November 2013. Isn’t the world already supposed to end in December 2012?
