“If you re-read your policy documents, you will see that we would be able to pay out to a surviving dependent or a widower – not to the deceased policy-holder themselves, on account of them being dead.”
The Hereafter is under new management, and with budget cuts and layoffs. With all the changes there’s bound to be mistakes, right?

The Book of the Not-Dead-Enough: Admin Errors is a series of short stories about people who died but continued… uh… moving (?) around on Earth. Some of the stories focus on the NDEs (not-dead-enoughs) themselves, others focus on the more problematic situations that arise after the dead start not… staying dead- such as the dead trying to collect their own insurance or the matter if a couple is still married since, you know, that “until death do us part” bit in the wedding vows. Go figure.

There’s really a lot of witty commentary and thoughtful insights (mostly comparing the NDEs to other political and social “taboos” of society).

Overall, The Book of the Not-Dead-Enough:Admin Errors is a lovely work that will be sure to give you the giggles.
