Samsara: A Story of the Bardo

I didn’t remember who I was or where I’d been when I woke on that shallow boat. Eventually I discovered that I wasn’t lost and I hadn’t been kidnapped. I was dead.

But this afterlife wasn’t what I expected. The Empyrean wasn’t heaven, the Netherlands weren’t hell, and my only hope was to make it to the Temple of Kore where the Queen of the Dead waited.

They call me Sara and this is my story. (A novella of the afterlife.)
