About ‘Dirk Quigby's Guide to the Afterlife’
This ecumenically snarky review of post life 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 œend 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 œ(For men only), and the Baha'i faith is summarized: œIf you're a Star Trek fan and like the Federation, this is the religion for you! Not for the easily offended of any faith.
"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
"This is the most delightful book this reviewer has read in a while.... E. E. King does a masterful job at mixing short vignettes of Dirk’s experience with the Devil, his travels to the many heavens, his newly discovered lover, and the factual descriptions of the final paradise of each faith. The Guide to the Afterlife is a mixture of fact and fiction, faith and mysticism at its best." - The NY Journal of Books
"A sly and satirical glimpse into what would happen if a Madison Avenue mad man gave heaven a PR makeover." - SF Weekly
"Dirk Quigby's Guide to the Afterlife is excellently composed and a read that is fun and very hard to set down." - Midwest book review
