Real Conversations with Imaginary friends
Saturday 24th   Literary Stand-Up: Snarky, Fresh and Sizzling Shorts | LA-based writer E.E. King “whose glittering gems of fiction pack a lot into a small space. Her work combines the O.

I can not recommend them highly enough.”

“Dirk Quigby’s Guide to the Afterlife” read by its author E.E. King

Dirk Quigby is just your average ad man that happens to be working for the Prince of Darkness. Lucifer is tired of the overcrowding and wants a better pitch for heaven to relieve his work load. Dirk sets out to write a Zagat style guide to the afterlife “Impish and delightful – a hilarious Zagat’s guide to heaven.” —Ray Bradbury

Fantastical, profound, hilarious and rollicking good ride through the heavens and hells of the Afterlife! A wonderful book.”

—Margaret Cho

The New York Journal of Books.

“This is the most delightful book this reviewer has read in a while…. The Guide to the Afterlife is a mixture of fact and fiction, faith and mysticism at its best.”

The Midwest Review of Books

“Dirk Quigby’s Guide to the Afterlife” is excellently composed and a read that is fun and very hard to set down.


A mock ZAGAT Guide to the Lord’s domain, Dirk Quigby’s Guide to the Afterlife is a sly and satirical glimpse into what would happen if a Madison Avenue mad man gave heaven a PR makeover. As King demonstrates, the devil also the best jokes
