Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlife by David Eagleman (Feb 9 2010)

This is a collection of really short "what if" stories after death. Some of them are ridiculous, others make a lot more sense. But they're all equally probable.

One that caught my eye was where Humans had brought consciousness as a service on Earth where the company had promised they'd be in a simulated heaven (cocktail parties were the most requested add on). However, upon death, they do reach heaven where God awaits them. God has spent considerable time in fine-tuning the heaven for the earthlings. Earthlings, on the other hand, are completely dissatisfied with the sad undertone of heaven with harp music and white robes, and demand cocktail parties.
