"Milo Has Lived 9,995 Lives and has just learned that he has 5 Left to get it right, in this smart, funny and extremely enjoyable novel.  Michael Poore is not afraid to go for the big themes and ideas, having Milo live lives that range from futuristic science-fiction hellscapes, to meditative explorations of purity and perfection, while keeping you intimately attached to the characters with writing that is down to earth and very relateable.  I was blown away with how good a time I had reading this novel."  -Recommended by Wayne

Ten thousand tries, to be exact. Ten thousand lives to "get it right." Answer all the Big Questions. Achieve Wisdom. And Become One with Everything.


Milo has had 9,995 chances so far and has just five more lives to earn a place in the cosmic soul. If he doesn't make the cut, oblivion awaits. But all Milo really wants is to fall forever into the arms of Death. Or Suzie, as he calls her.


More than just Milo's lover throughout his countless layovers in the Afterlife, Suzie is literally his reason for living--as he dives into one new existence after another, praying for the day he'll never have to leave her side again.


But Reincarnation Blues is more than a great love story: Every journey from cradle to grave offers Milo more pieces of the great cosmic puzzle--if only he can piece them together in time to finally understand what it means to be part of something bigger than infinity. As darkly enchanting as the works of Neil Gaiman and as wisely hilarious as Kurt Vonnegut's, Michael Poore's Reincarnation Blues is the story of everything that makes life profound, beautiful, absurd, and heartbreaking.
