We fear the unknown and nothing of the unknown is more fearful than Death. It is enshrined in the literary, the movies, music, and paintings because art is about emotions. So why do we forget that Death is nothing without Life and the tapestry we weave within our lives and those we touch is much more colorful than the end game? John Sims Jeter's The End of a Perfect Death showcases that color in these death-with-life-themed short stories, ten tales of the strange and wonderful. Yes, he talks about or alludes to death whether animate or inanimate (and as John shows, a slurpee lid has a life too), but it's the in-between that makes these Twilight Zone-like and musical stories so rich and vivid whether funny or sad, absurd or realistic. Please join John in his search for the meaning in life through his journey in The End of a Perfect Death.
