The worst part isn’t being dead, but finding a job. Francis Lee Lemons wakes up in the land of the dead, unemployed and bored. As a criminal in his life in modern America, he figured that the best plan in his afterlife is to stick to what he knows. But getting in with the local crime syndicate - run by an 1800s gunslinger, Alicia - isn’t that easy.
Explore the land of the dead with enigmatic characters from Graveminder in this short story originally published in the Naked City anthology.

I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.
This is a spin off from Graveminder, although it has only one of the original characters in it. It's a short story, and suffers from that. But it's a nice view into that world and I hope it means Marr will write more about it.
