As an epilogist, Ben Mendelssohn appreciates an unexpected ending. But when that finale is the untimely demise of his beloved wife in a bizarre accident, Ben is incapable of coping. Marian was more than his life partner; she was the fiber that holds together all that he is, and Ben is willing to end his own life and enter the unknown beyond if it means any chance of getting her back.

One bullet to the brain later, Ben is in the Other World, where he discovers a vast and curiously material existence utterly unlike anything he could have imagined, and where the deceased from every age live an eternal second life. There Ben finds everyone from his grandparents to Marilyn Monroe. But he can’t find Marian.

Desperate for a reunion, no matter the cost, Ben hires an unconventional afterlife investigator to track her down. But as evidence mounts that Marian is actually alive and well and living in Tel Aviv, Ben also uncovers unexpected truths that will haunt him throughout eternity.

""Stunning writing, hilarious, and brilliantly translated!""
—Ellen Kushner, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Thomas the Rhymer

“I've seldom read a book so strange and so assured.  Gafla's vivid characters, his matter-of-fact underworld, and his mysteriously interconnected mortal universe confront readers with the awkwardness, desperation, and humor of life and its many endings.”
—Max Gladstone, author of Three Parts Dead

“The World of the End is a refreshing, original, and particularly, impressive work... The writer displays virtuosity in moving from a film-noir kind of novel to dealing with metaphysical issues regarding post-mortem life, then returning to an adventure story incorporating innumerable motifs from the world of science fiction. His most prominent ability is the philosophical depth he achieves without being over-smart or getting lost.”
