A true story, this fascinating page-turner demystifies what happens after we die and will forever change your views about life, death and the hereafter.
Annie Kagan is not a medium or a psychic, she did not die and come back to life; in fact, when she was awakened by her deceased brother, she thought perhaps she had gone a little crazy
In The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: How My Bad-Boy Brother Proved to Me There’s Life After Death, Kagan shares the extraordinary story of her after death communications (ADC) with her brother Billy, who began speaking to her just weeks after his unexpected death.
One of the most detailed and profound ADC’s ever recorded, Kagan’s book takes the reader beyond the near-death experience. Billy’s vivid, real-time account of his on-going journey through the mysteries of death will change the way you think about life. Death and your place in the Universe.
In his foreword, Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life after Life, explains the phenomena of walkers between the worlds, known to us since ancient times, and says that Dr. Kagan’s thought-provoking account is an excellent example.

From the Publisher
"Greek philosophers even had a name for the people who somehow suspended between this life and the next life, "walkers between the worlds." Dr. Kagan's thought-provoking account is an excellent example." -Raymond Moody, M.D., Ph.D., bestselling author of twelve books including Life After Life--which has sold over 13 million copies world wide
"Having read The Afterlife of Billy Fingers, death feels like an adventure to look forward to. In this conversation between an introspective, artistic woman and her dead, bad-boy brother, Annie Kagan and Billy Fingers manage to collaborate on a work of transcendent wisdom, irreverent humor and sublime beauty. This exquisitely written book makes me want to live my life with as much joy as possible, and lay fear to rest." -Mirabai Starr, author of God of Love and Dark Night of the Soul
"I read The Afterlife of Billy Fingers in 90 Minutes...I could not put it down … what a great book, really one of the best in this genre." -Arielle Ford, bestselling author of Wabi Sabi Love & The Soulmate Secret
"The Afterlife of Billy Fingers is one of the best books I've read on the subject of life after death. So much of what the author describes jibes with my experiences of both being with dying people at the moment of their deaths and in two long, extended Near Death Experiences I've had myself. The book strikes chords of truth again and again and again.
The excellent writing and the story itself hold the reader's attention beautifully. Skeptics will keep reading to "find out what happens next." And whether you're a skeptic or a true believer, the book will powerfully engage you. Part of the book's premise is Annie's questioning whether her communication with Billy is real or her own craziness, and that mystery keeps us reading and seeking answers. We want to find out for ourselves what the source of this communication really is. Along the way, what Billy tells Annie is inspiring, enlightening, and insightful. The book works. It's a good read with an appealing and controversial message." --Hal Zina Bennett, author of more than 30 published books including Write from the Heart and The Lens of Perception
"The Afterlife of Billy Fingers reaffirms the NDEs experiences of the light and love I encountered on the other side. It's an engaging account of the transformation of the spirit and I highly recommend." ─Dannion Brinkley, bestselling author of Saved by the Light
"The Afterlife of Billy Fingers by Annie Kagan is a wholly believable story that never loses its grounding in the daily life we all know. The voices of the narrator and her deceased brother never strike a false note. This is not a story that asks you to believe anything, but simply to listen with an open mind and heart. I think you will find yourself transfixed." --Rev. Susan Varon, Ordained Interfaith Minister
"I am telling everyone I know about this book. And I LOVE the clever word play puzzles he gives you, like setting down pearls in an elaborate puzzle, that allow you (and us) to confirm his journey. Thanks to both of you for this thrilling book. I barely slept so I could pick it up again." ─Richard Martini, bestselling author of FlipSide: A Tourist's Guide on How to Navigate the Afterlife
"The Afterlife of Billy Fingers is an extraordinary example of extended after-death communication. It's one of the most powerful, liberating, and healing books on life after death I've ever read. In fact, you may have a spiritual experience while reading it that will transform your beliefs about life, death, and the afterlife. I cannot recommend this luminous book highly enough." -Bill Guggenheim, bestselling co-author of Hello From Heaven!, Publisher's Marketplace

I intend to help people as Billy did. He had helped people in the court system and I now want to convey to kids at a camp I've applied to that weed is something that can change from the seemingly harmless high that involves getting the munchies and enjoying music a bit more, into a consuming habit that reverts you into a foolish stubborn child.
Parts of the book read like an ayahuasca trip; I've consumed ayahuasca dozens of times (reminds me about the part in the book where he drinks the divine nectar) and much of my memories from the ceremonies resemble the love and truth that Billy described. I loved my aya ceremonies and hope to experience the vast bliss that I feel we will all return to at some point in our eternal journey. I recommend this book to anyone who feels low about making certain decisions and perhaps if you're burdened by cumbersome beliefs of a punishing God, maybe it's time that you reflect on if you've been taught those beliefs and if they serve you. These sort of uncivilized and low vibrational beliefs have long plagued mankind and have been a mechanism used to control others by using fear to scare others into adhering to a way of life. I love Jesus, and I am very much into Buddha and other teachers; I recognize how blatantly obvious it is that this sort of manipulation has been going on for so long, causing vast amounts of human suffering. Religion is dangerous and needs to be discarded for humanity to achieve peace and harmony; spiritualism is an entirely different thing that doesn't involve fracturing the human race into groups who make promises of 'the only way to heaven'. Being spiritual allows one to embrace all the amazing regional spiritual figures and cooperate with others without severing the fundamental bonds we inherently all poses.
It's time for us to question everything we've been taught and listen to our inner knowing. The average conditioned person might say that this book doesn't have any basis, and scientists (many are coming around) might dismiss it without what they consider to be evidence. I listened to the author talk and felt what she was saying was true and read the book and it reveled volumes of felt wisdom which I wouldn't get from the evening news or a Sunday preacher. Listening to my inner self is my way to navigate life, not by believing the guy with lots of graphs who's being funded by dozens of corporations that are invested in an outcome; furthering their monetary gain and control. Thanks for this gem of a book.
I've read over 100 books allegedly written by spirit. The thing that has convinced me that it's a real phenomenon is that there is so much consistency in the data, across decades, centuries, and country boundaries. We must keep in mind that none of these spirits are all-knowing; they are presenting the afterlife as they experience it.
The "non-judgement" claims seem to have started in modern times. Make no mistake about it - the law of the universe is "as you sow, so shall you reap." There is no great white throne judgement as religion teaches us, but we do review our lives and judge ourselves. Thereupon, we go to the place in the spirit world for which our earth lives have fitted us, whether that be the spheres of light or the spheres of darkness. That is the universal law of attraction. After you die, you will go to a "sphere" where everyone else is just. like. you. Think about that for a minute.
Now back to Billy, his life of drug dependency and irresponsibility could very well suit him to an afterlife that begins with floating alone in space, seemingly just a mind with no body. He seems perfectly satisfied with it. To me, that kind of existence would be as much of a hell as the belief that has us standing around the throne with a harp, and worshipping God every second for eternity. There are places in the afterlife that are infinitely worse than Billy's situation, but there are many that are infinitely better; I expect that the bad places are reserved for the truly evil. There are many different levels of good, and many different levels of bad. Billy has not grown spiritually, or he would not be floating in space, believing that all the mistakes he made on earth are perfectly okay, unable to visualize the spirits who are trying to help him.
Most decent people will find that the spirit world is a wonderful place. You will have a body that is very much like the body you have on earth, but it is incorruptible and never ages. In fact, if you die after the prime of life, your bodily appearance will return to that age which you considered the prime of life. Anything that you considered an imperfection of your physical body will be gone. Children who die before reaching adulthood will continue to grow up in the spirit world.
You will live in a house that was built by your deeds on earth. It will be what you always dreamed of, whether that be a cottage by the sea, or a mansion on a hill. There are flowers, trees, mountains, rivers, oceans, lakes, animals and birds. If you are a good person, there will be no contentious people to cause stress and anxiety. You can travel the universe if you wish by "thinking" yourself to any place you like. You can also walk to your destination; you will never get tired. Your beloved pets will be waiting for you, as will all the friends and family member that you love. No one, friend, foe, or family, will be in your life unless you want them to and their presence makes you happy.
No matter who you are or what you've done, the place that you go to immediately after death does not have to be the place that you will stay for eternity. As you grow spiritually, you can progress to more beautiful and sublime areas of life. All it takes is remorse and a wish to improve yourself. In this book, it seems that Billy already believes he is perfect and has no remorse for any of his actions that harmed others. Therefore, he may be floating in space for a very long time.
The world would be such a better place if only human beings realized that where they begin their afterlife depends on the how they lived their earth lives. You cannot live a depraved life, call on a savior at the last minute before death, and be saved from your just desserts. Nor can you live a good, decent life, do something bad at the end, and be thrown into hell for eternity. Give the Father of the Universe a little more credit than that!

If only this happened to more people it would be so much easier to accept death and not be afraid. It wasn't all unicorns and angels so made it more believable and although some may have found this unbelievable I didn't. We all possess a power much greater than we understand and unfortunately our belief systems and fears built through others fears over the years blocks us from comunicating directly with our loved ones in the spirit World. If you are working as a Spiritual medium education is paramount as you are bringing messages from loved ones and that needs a lot of training to get yourself out of the way and just give what you get.
However, if we are having a private meeting with a loved one who has passed over ... it is just a natural process.
I had been reading some fictional thrillers and wanted a complete change ... this ticked the box for me thanks x
