The Cackelry Stories... All humans must eventually die and afterlife is of universal concern. The imaginative mind looks to its best interest. Religion can guide men's souls but simple belief is not for everyone. Professor Jeremiah B Cackelry III, a brilliant Einsteinian scientist, intent on saving the world, was introduced in The Man Who Created God (Xlibris). A confirmed atheist, he married his young assistant and met death by Viagra complications. In The Abduction (Authorhouse) his widow, Anne Duchin, married to a banker, Jeremiah B Cackelry IV, became involved in a search for a controversial writing hidden in the Great China Wall. The first Chinese ambassador made an arduous trek westward for alliances with Romans against Mongolian hordes. A chance stay at a Bethlehem farm and the Messianic Prophesy caused him to substitute his twin infant for Jesus in the manger. His second twin, assisting in burial following crucifixion, was mistaken for resurrection. This new Cackelry book The Afterlife of a Restless Soul (Outskirts) follows his spirit into the afterlife where, finding no god, he reorganizes heaven. Disillusioned by ideal existence he returns to the planet plagued by fear that a god might exist and is likely to be a woman. The author, a noted contributor in science and philosophy, is a phi beta kappa, magna cum laude graduate of Princeton University. His other popular books include The Precarious Human Role in a Mechanistic Universe (Xlibris), a nonfiction analysis of the trend toward atheism.

Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite In The Afterlife of a Restless Soul: But Is God Really a Woman? author John Brinster offers the reader a provocative look at possible afterlife scenarios. Professor Jeremiah Cackelry III has died from complication of a Viagra dose. He is a brilliant scholar and an absolute atheist who finds himself in a very difficult situation following his untimely demise. He awakens to find himself as some sort of spirit entity and he attempts to comprehend the transition he has made. Being both an astronomer and a physicist, he cannot fathom that this spirit world has thus far gone undetected by the greatest minds in the scientific community. His most pressing concern is that there is no organization or purpose to the spirit world. So he goes about soliciting ideas from the great minds of those in what he names Spiritland. They begin to address concerns about conditions on Earth, such as the crowded penal system and why humans appear to be possessed by both imagination and superstition. Cackelry is now in command and he begins to have feelings associated with others he has known in such positions of power. There is speculation about the elusive nature of human emotion and how women factor into using their uncanny, nearly godlike instinctual, emotional gifts. There are issues galore in this book and many readers will finish the book with more questions than resolutions. Even though Cackelry dismisses religions as useful to humankind, he has no trouble assuming a position of ultimate power in Spiritland such that he attempts to control much as he surmises religious doctrine controls. The ending brings an interesting surprise, whereby the reader understands, that despite one's beliefs, second chances do present themselves at opportune times.
