Book Description

Cooper's dead. But what's a nerd to do when Heaven doesn't believe in technology, and hell's hotter than an overclocked CPU? Panicking and running away back to Earth seems a perfectly logical reaction, especially since his beloved computer hasn't come with him. Of course, what to do then is a bit of a puzzle that only Linda can solve...

This is a very short book - novelette length - around 10 000 words or 40 (print) pages.

Warning: Contains frequent foul language, adult themes, nerd-speak and Aussie insults. Not suitable for children.

Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Cooper says:
"I'm dead.
"This is sorta ####ing me off.
"I don't know what happened, though. One moment I was on my way to visit my girlfriend with a big bunch of flowers, and the next I saw a big bright light and a cloud and a crowd of dudes in dresses carrying harps. Holy ####, I thought, I'm dead! Then I thought - #####, that looks like a church choir, all low-tech and acoustic and stuff. That's not where I wanna be. Bet they don't have a single computer, or if they do it's like a 386 or something, all filled with dustbunnies. There's no way I'm getting stuck in a low-tech shiny place like that with acoustic music everywhere. That's a freaky version of hell. #### no. So I ran, or flew or something the #### away, and now I'm back home and I'm still dead.
"I think maybe my girlfriend killed me."

Linda says:
"Oh Lord, a few stubbies short of a sixpack as well as too dumb to go to heaven. This one's gonna be a barrel of fun. "

Krystal says:
"I can't believe the stupid little ######## thinks I did him in. Now I wish like #### that I had. What the #### is wrong with him? ####ing self-absorbed moron, can't believe he killed himself through arrant stupidity, so he's got to blame the only person who ever put up with him for more than five ####ing minutes."

4.0 out of 5 stars A funny sequel May 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Naomi Kramer has become another of my favorite authors.
After reading Dead(ish) I immediately purchased this book. She carries over her vulgar humor into this book with some interesting views on the afterlife.

5.0 out of 5 stars Linda's back! February 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With help from Trent , Linda helps another ghost find heaven- or not? Linda's version of heaven is not the typical one you are used to reading about.

5.0 out of 5 stars HA! I was right - this one's the keeper July 15, 2011
By Rich H.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the book DEAD(ish) book 1 should have been. Funny, well-paced, compelling, and offering up an original and very amusing concept of the afterlife. The only real criticism I can offer is that this book relies too heavily on the previous volume for character development; it isn't really a stand-alone story. The solution is simple: buy both, and read book 1 first - at a dollar each, why not?

Five stars, assuming you read book 1 before coming here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nope April 23, 2014
By Dawn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought the first book was pretty good. Right after finishing it, I went ahead and bought the rest of the books in the series. They were nothing like the first book. It was a struggle to try to get through them because it just became ridiculous. Was it even the same author?

No real plot, no character development and a waste of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A funny short story January 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this story. It wasn't as vengeful as Dead(ish), but it was still an enjoyable read. I love hearing Linda's antics, and this time she has a partner. Cooper was definitely the typical nerd that has nothing going for him in his regular life. That is until he discovers what he can do as a ghost. This series continues to make me smile and laugh.
