From the introduction:
"Dear friends, I thank you for coming to bear witness to my passing. As you know, I have been of ill effect for quite some time now... but thankfully, the doctors who pronounced me on death’s door those many months ago gave me time..time to figure out my next wild adventure. And you have all been invited to partake in it.
For when I mention my passing... I do not mean my passing in the traditional sense, from life to whatever holds us in death. What I mean is the next stage of of what I believe to be life itself! Now, please if you allow yourself to come with me on this adventure, follow my servant through to the next set of doors..."
