Jim never amounted to much in his life. He was the first to admit that. He grew up poor in an upstate New York town. He didn’t know who his father was, and his mother died when he was young. Jim turned to drugs for release from this world, and it worked, that’s what killed him. Heroin needle-inflicted AIDS was the door out. Though this transition was painfully slow. But he suspected no less an end for his short, squandered life. Jim had come to the conclusion early on that he always got what he deserved.
And he was right. In his death, he gets what he deserves.
As Jim moves across into the next world, he gets the chance to fix what was broken in his life. With the help of a Shaman named Owa’etga Sega’ hedus (Marvelous Attention Span / Marv) and in an adventure that covers the entire Earth from Iroquois forests to Mediterranean islands, from the Kansas Prairie to Alpine mountains, and finally from a ghost of New York City to a ship on an endless sea, Jim becomes the person he always should have been.
