WHOSE DREAMS OF HELL ARE MORE INTERESTING, politicians or popes? The reader may discover the answer to that question and more in this imaginative interpretation of an afterlife. If you are curious about the opinions of Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Marilyn Monroe, or Saint Thomas Aquinas, there are plenty of those as well.

If you could design a heaven for your friends and a hell for your enemies, you would be challenged to come up with anything as quirkily appropriate as Mike Corbett has provided for the reader. Demons, angels, politicians and clergyman collide in this satirical ambush from the present day to the time of Torquemada. Although the text touches on sensitive issues, it is the author's hope to inspire more laughter than resentment.

Laughter of the Damned is not only about perceptions of heaven and hell; it is a buffet of fiendishly delicious surprises. It simultaneously stimulates the intellect, the imagination, the libido and the inherent appetite for original thought. Although provocative, the subject matter is merely the canvas for the writer's irreverent and imaginative visions, and his wit sneaks in at surprising moments.

About the Author

The author, Mike Corbett, is a well-known competitive game player around the world. Along with his participation in backgammon, tennis, scrabble and poker tournaments, he adds lecturing and contributions to periodicals to his impressive resume. His name has been on the worldwide list "Giants of Backgammon" for decades, and his excellent analyses have been translated into many languages.

His book "Backgammon Problems" written in 2007, is considered a must-have for serious backgammon players. The positive feedback from an international array of grateful readers inspired Mike to focus his imaginative observations and scalding wit in another direction. "Laughter of the Damned" and "Mr. Nachron's List" are his first steps away from non-fiction.
