Overview


"Impish and delightful—a hilarious Zagat's Guide to Heaven!"—Ray Bradbury

"A fantastical, profound, hilarious and rollicking good ride through the heavens and hells of the afterlife! A wonderful book."—Margaret Cho

Hell's too full, so the Devil hires ad man Dirk Quigby to pen a travel guide enticing travelers to different afterlives: Hindu, Catholic, Protestant (that one's got a lot of subdivisions), Scientologist, and more. Instead of writing a boffo bestseller, Dirk unites all religions in a common goal: kill Dirk.

E.E. King grew up in one of those tolerant households that don't force religion down kids' throats. This is the result.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This ecumenically snarky review of postlife paradises spares no religion--large (Roman Catholicism) or small (Zoroastrianism), venerable (ancient Greek) or modern (Scientology)--in its attempts to rate their various comforts and costs. Wrapped in a slight frame story about an underpaid ad writer trying to stem the flow of souls to overcrowded Hell, the individual assessments include thoughtful descriptions of each “end destination,” background information on theology, and five-star ratings of perks, food, drink, music, accommodations, and ease of entry. Even top-rated afterlives get some pointed comments: Islam’s Paradise is helpfully given three stars “(For men only),” and the Baha’i faith is summarized: “If you’re a Star Trek fan and like the Federation, this is the religion for you!” Not for the easily offended of any faith. (Oct.)
From the Publisher

A sly and satirical glimpse into what would happen if a Madison Avenue mad man gave heaven a PR makeover. —SF Weekly

This is the most delightful book this reviewer has read in a while...a mixture of fact and fiction, faith and mysticism at its best.—New York Journal of Books
