I agree with Panz that the novel could have to do with the thought of Oct. 28 being the last day of the world. It is possible that the first book could be about what happened before "Afterworlds"(the time after "our" world ended) emerged and the second book could be about the emergence of the "Afterworld". Since there are two books in one, I assume there could be a different main character in each one. Even though there could be different main characters, they are going to connect to each other somehow. Like Deryn and Alek in Leviathan.

For anyone who somehow hasn't caught wind yet: http://scottwesterfeld.com/blog/2013/10/my-new-book-in-word-cloud/#comments

Whoa, it's very long :o Cool, more to read when it finally - finally! - gets here!
Also, yay! The words more or less match up with my idea! Like "after" and "last" and "night" and "here" and "through".
And, with this, I am now going to add to my guess: I think now that the whole book won't take place in the post-apocalyptic world, but there'll be a book acting as a portal between that world and ours. Either that, or it's someone in our world reading a book about the post-apocalyptic world, or vice-versa.
Hooray for my ability to draw detailed and sort of sense-making conclusions from tiny hints! And I haven't even watched the video yet!

All I know is, it sounds awesome and hopefully it'll give me another universe to play around in.

So we've found out that it's about a girl's adventures being published! Now I suspect that that's one side of the story, and the other side (because he said it was like two books in one) is what I said before about the apocalypse.

Now I really want to know what it's about. Maybe it has something to do with what the girl is writing?

Unfortunately I can't buy the book or read it the day it comes put because I'll be on a field trip. Bleh.
