Note: even though the ISBN matches exactly, the copy of this book posted in my bookshelf is a PAPERBACK.

From the back cover: "Howard Inkley's first big shock in the Afterlife was finding out that he was the only cartoonist ever to make it into Heaven. What the higher-ups wanted from Howard was a collection of drawings depicting the obvious advantages of Heaven over Hell, for public relations back on earth. Howard took the job."
