Encyclopedia > Death and What Comes Next

Death and What Comes Next is a Discworld short story by Terry Pratchett. It tells the story of a discussion between Death and a philosopher, in which the philosopher attempts to use the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics to argue death is not a certainty.


The story was originally written for the online puzzle game TimeHunt (http://www.timehunt.com), and the text contains a hidden word puzzle, also devised by Pratchett, which provides a codeword for the game.


Like Theatre of Cruelty, another of his short stories, Pratchett has allowed it to be put on the L-Space Web.
