L.A. author Dustin Thomason wrote the bestseller The Rule of Four with Ian Caldwell. He's now going solo with 12.21, published in August, about a doctor trying to save civilization from destruction on Dec. 21, 2012, which is when the world will supposedly end, according to the Maya calendar. Publishers Weekly wrote, "Michael Crichton fans will find a lot to like."
