The End of Time is a period at the end of the Universe.

Events from the End of Time have been recorded by Michael Moorcock based on information supplied by Una Persson in a number of novels and stories.

Often enthusiasms or manias takeover. One such was a mania for Flags, it was long remembered afterward for the events that took place and followed on from it. Its landscape is always in a state of flux as the denizens create new confections and playgrounds, some of these remain, forgotten, such as the Gothic Village visited by Snuffles and Miss Mavis Ming. Some features remain such as the Old Cities of Shanalorm and Djer and the Ottawa monuments' and Uranian remains.
