Here's a BETTER prophetic novel:

It was a dark and stormy night. Ted laid in his bed and silently screaming that his life was irritating his sense of satisfaction, when suddenlty the Sun exploded, rendering all of his concerns a moot issue.

See?

James Elroy. Hard-hitting crazy mo-fo writes some of the most addicting novels you will ever read. He takes bits and pieces of history and mashes it all together with his brand of staccato, "holy shit what did I just read" fiction; if you love espionage, conspiracy, cops and robbers, fuck-ups, perverts, good guys and bad guys, you'll love James Elroy.
