Memento Mori: Remember that you Will Die, published by JWK Fiction

Memento Mori, published by JWK Fiction, is an anthology that presented a look into why we must remember that we will die.  Whether it be to plan for the future of our children and grandchildren, or simply to keep us in check, we must remember that it will all end someday.  The story I contributed, "Melancholia Mourning of Self" is a reflective piece that explores a man's final moments as he ponders his life.  We then see a glimpse of his afterlife, and experience his pain due to lack of preparation.

"Death is inevitable. This collection of art, poetry, flash fiction and short storiesaddresses the fact that death is inevitable. The manner of death and the why is important, as is the consequences, before and during the process of death. And what happens after death? Nothing? Everything? Or is it somewhere in between? Remember that we will die. Death is inevitable. More than twenty authors, poets and artists show us our mortality"
