Writing about the afterlife as a comedy, does leave a lot of room for coming up with creative ways for people to die.

I thought this was going to be a more challenging task than it is.  Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your perspective, the Darwin Awards provide ample humorous (yet tragic) examples for me to pull from.

Examples:

  • Using a chainsaw to turn a grenade into fireworks
  • Trying to fight a lion
  • Using homemade bungy cords

I don’t think I will even have to come up with something original for my next book.  I think the human race has most likely beaten me to any idea I could possibly imagine.

P.S. David Bowie will not be making an appearance.  He didn’t seem like the type of guy who would have had any regrets.
