But it can. And it has. So what happens after death is now less of a philosophical question than a question of actual reality. On the Disc, as here, they need Death.

Theres no telling what might happen, particularly when they discover that life really is only for the living...

In Reaper Man, Death develops a personality and begins a mortal life as farmhand Bill Door, starting a backlash of unnatural events including an undead wizard, poltergeist activity, and animated objects. Worst of all, a dangerous hive mall is hatched from "city eggs. Through forging friendships in the mortal realm, Bill Door determines to fight Death, and he defeats the new Death and again takes on the role. As the novel begins, Death, the grim reaper, is fired for having developed a personality. In exchange for his loyal service, Death is given a small measure of mortal lifetime and allowed to keep his horse Binky. Meanwhile, Windle Poons, a year-old wizard, dies and returns as a zombie when Death does not reap his soul.
