These are the tales of Jim, an average dead guy on a trip through the devil’s paradise.  His unexamined life runs up against the existential weirdness of an eternal free-for-all, and a newfound hard-on for the Truth points him toward adventure.



Click here for the reddit post that instigated Jim’s journey, and you can find all of his stories below.  They’re in chronological order, except there really isn’t one.  You’ll figure it out.

    I stumbled across this on reddit, and fuck me they’re insane. It’s as if Douglas Adams wrote an episode of South Park while under the influence of psychotics…

    Either way, loving them so far, will be checking back every once in a while to see where this goes!

  9. I just discovered your story through reddit (thanks sticky XD) and this is really awesome.
    I’m really looking forward to Limbo.

    Hey, do you have an update on the release of limbo, I mean I understand delays and everything but an update, maybe with an eta, would be great.

    1. I haven’t been as active as I’d like to be with the blog lately. I’m trying to get everything together, and pretty soon I’ll have the book up and some more stories. I’ll post an update soon. As for the short film, it is complete – but it has to make its run through the festivals before it’s released to the backers, and then online to the public. Exactly how far out that is, I’m not sure. Probably a few months yet.

    I see you don’t monetize, don’t waste your traffic,
    you can earn additional cash every month with new monetization method.
    This is the best adsense alternative for any type of website (they
    approve all sites), for more info simply search in gooogle: murgrabia’s tools
