The Almost End of the End Forever, by Bob Bowersox, is a sometimes hilarious, sometimes biting fantasy that centers on the two iconic figures of Life and Death and their relationship, which in many respects resembles a long-married couple. Life is a lusty, vibrant woman whose unceasing creation of life in all its forms borders on an addiction. Death is a curmudgeon of a man who has grown weary of his role in the scheme of things, and decides he’s not going to do it anymore. He informs Life that he is quitting in no uncertain terms, and she might do well to scale back her own activities a bit because he won’t be around to clean up after her anymore. Furthermore, Death has decided that he’s going to give the other side of the coin a shot and try his hand at creating a few things — with disastrous results. The resulting problems of a world without Death mount exponentially until Elvin Wisterly, an old man now reaching just shy of 180 years old because of Death’s intransigence, helps both Life and Death realize their respective value to the bigger picture.
