Dave Marwood is trapped in a soul crushing dead end job. He’s in love with his work colleague Melanie and his only friend Gary is a conspiracy theory nut.
His life is going nowhere until he has a Near Death Experience - though Death thinks of it as a Near Dave Experience. He discovers gifts he never knew he possessed and a world he never dreamed existed. A world where the Grim Reaper is a hard drinking, grumpy Billy Joel fan and the undead are bored, lonely and dangerous.
How To Be Dead is the first part in a three novella funny urban fantasy series that tells the story of Death and his office staff protecting humanity from ghosts, zombies, vampires and medium-sized apocalypses.
After a nice cup of tea and a biscuit.
“Dave Turner is a funny man and ‘How To Be Dead’ is a brilliant read.”
“If Neil Gaiman and Simon Pegg sat down to write a story together they might come up with something like this.”
“Hilarious and unexpectedly moving.”
“Laugh out loud funny… It’s been a while since an author has made me laugh more than Pratchett does.”
Dave Turner is an award winning writer of science-fiction, fantasy and comedy. His first joke was published in a national newspaper when he was nine years old. He is still hoping to write another one with the same level of maturity.
After selling various screenplays which you will note you have not seen as films at your local multiplex, he has published two novellas. He lives in the south of England with his wife, three children and a crippling biscuit addiction.
