A Newcomer’s Guide to the Afterlife

The guide of choice for anyone who plans to die someday – are YOU ready for the AFTERLIFE?

To find out, take this simple quiz:

1. Like Earth, the Afterlife has celebrities, outcasts, deadheads, losers, and busybodies.


2. Is there an Afterlife after the Afterlife?


3. When you first arrive on “the Other Side,” you will be given:

a) a set of wings
b) a toaster
c) a copy of A Newcomer’s Guide to the Afterlife

Don’t worry if you’re not sure how to respond. A Newcomer’s Guide to the Afterlife has answers to these questions and more – and if you’re lucky, some of them may turn out to be right!

An irreverent, one-of-a-kind compendium from the award-winning author of Ishmael, in collaboration with Tom Whalen, A Newcomer’s Guide to the Afterlife can be read as a parable, an allegory, a work of fiction – or exactly what it claims to be: a helpful handbook for the recently deceased. It is filled with uncommon wisdom, bizarre imaginings, uncanny perceptions, and unexpected humor. Is it fantastic escapism or a seminal event in human history? Read it and find out….

Face it. The Afterlife is the ultimate test. You might as well study.

“One thing I got from it was this- the answers to the questions you have gotten in this life, are,
like the answers you get in this book, subjective because no one really knows!
There are gems of wisdom to be gained from reading this book, I could go on…”

Amazon Review

“The book does exactly what it says, and answers many questions (it’s written mostly in a Q&A style)
about beginning your existence in the afterlife. The preface and story behind the writing of the book
(fiction or not…) makes it even more interesting.”

Amazon Review

“Let me start off by saying that anything Daniel Quinn writes has a certain magnetic quality to it.
Quinn is a master at explaining his ideas in a way that even a reader like me can understand and enjoy.”

Amazon Review

“If you are very much into parapsychology, you will understand this book from page one to the ending, however if you are not a very spiritual person, take it with a grain of salt. Use it for you own knowledge, in other words use it as “JUST IN CASE””
