Laughter of the Damned

 If you could design a heaven for your friends and a hell for your enemies, you would be challenged to come up with anything as quirkily appropriate as Mike Corbett has provided for the reader. Demons, angels, politicians and clergyman collide in this satirical ambush from the present day to the time of Torquemada. Although subject matter touches on sensitive issues, it is the author’s hope to inspire more laughter than resentment.
Laughter of the Damned is not only about perceptions of heaven and hell; it is a buffet of fiendishly delicious surprises. It simultaneously stimulates the intellect, the imagination, the libido and the inherent appetite for original thought. It is seductively well-written and you can almost see the ghosts of Mark Twain and Evelyn Waugh nodding with approval. Although provocative, the subject matter is merely the canvas for the writer’s irreverent and imaginative visions, and his wit sneaks in at surprising moments.

“It is very creative and quite an addictive read.”      David Eagleman, Author of SUM: Forty Tales from the Afterlives    

 “Very entertaining and very interesting. This would be a great book for a readers group. We really won’t know where we are going when we die, until we actually arrive. Reading “Laughter of the Damned” by Mike Corbett will definitely make you think about it.”     Reader Views

  "I loved every line of it and have read it twice!!  Thanks for such a wonderful gift you have given to me and all the others that are lucky enough to share the inside of that incredible mind and heart of Mike Corbett. He is a naughty genius."    Gayle Borden  

"Mike Corbett has interesting ideas and expresses them with originality. The Pope testing the acoustics of the Sistine Chapel; "confluence of vulnerabilities; not a bad, bad, bad man; the warmest kind of death; tedium of ethical consistency;" good words, well used, George Orwell is pleased. Don't get me wrong, this is not the best book ever. My point is this: Mike Corbett is capable of writing best book ever."   Don Macadam

About Mike Corbett

Mike Corbett's formal education and graduate degree may not have prepared him for life as a writer, but the hours of supplementary experience in nightclubs from Fort Lauderdale to Prague have helped him find his voice. The transformation of bits of reality into entertaining sequences of words is all the challenge a person who has lived his life like a pinball needs. He justified decades of travel by competing successfully in backgammon, scrabble and poker tournaments. Insight is born in the company of stimulating people in extraordinary situations, and varying the range of stimuli as much as is safely possible has served him well. Corbett is fascinated by the wavering border between reality and fantasy, and he accompanies his observations with a suitably inappropriate sense of humor.
