About this book

In Chown's most ambitious book to date he sets out to answer some of the most provocative questions of today: Where did we come from? What the hell are we doing here? Is Elvis alive and kicking in another space domain? What's beyond the edge of the Universe? Did aliens build the stars? Can we live forever? The Never-Ending Days of Being Dead is a fascinating and delightful popular science book, and an eye-opening look at the nature of reality and the place of life in the universe.

"Marcus Chown has the happy knack of making abstruse subjects seem intelligible."
- Sir Patrick Moore
