Escape Pod has dug way back, to 1972 in fact, to bring us a vintage Robert Silverberg short story called When We Went To See The End Of The World. I liked it, and it is quite modern, despite being 34 years old.
Here’s the Grand Master’s own description of his Hugo nominated and oft reprinted tale:
“In a time of constant turmoil and disaster (rampant mutant viruses, terrorist bombings, pollution, and so on), a travel agency starts offering time-travel trips to see the end of the world. Among the keep-up-with-the-Joneses crowd, it’s the fashionable thing to do. The odd part is, everybody who goes sees something different.”
