Robertson is the author of Mayan Horror: How to Survive the End of the World in 2012 (Anvil 2011). The book is a satirical survival handbook on the impending year of doom, 2012, as predicted by the Mayans.
"When the Mayan Calendar runs out on December 21st, 2012, all manner of possible disasters will befall the earth, from a collision with a rogue planet, to biblical flooding, to being attacked by swarms of gnats. But just because life as we know it will come to an end, it doesn’t mean you can’t survive and even prosper financially in the post-apocalyptic world.
"Bob Robertson’s Mayan Horror: How to Survive the End of the World in 2012 gives you all the vital information you’ll need to come through smiling after Armageddon wreaks havoc on the planet. All your questions will be answered: who are the Mayans? Is Maya Angelou one of them? Are oven mitts useful against the earth’s molten core? Is there a team of disaster DJs and news-readers ready to swing into action on the Emergency Alert System and do they take requests? Will the Diefenbunker protect you against landslides, unlike the one that crushed the Diefenbaker? Should you start collecting pairs of animals? Mayan Horror: How to Survive the End of the World in 2012 is the handbook you’ll want to have in your pocket when the Mayan Calendar ticks down and all hell breaks loose."
