The Undertaker's Tale

When you blog about illness, death and taxes it is nice to throw in a piece that is upbeat every now and then. Even though he has been dead for years, Mark Twain will publish a new story -- The Undertaker's Tale. According to the LA Times,
The never-before-published story "The Undertaker's Tale" by Mark Twain will finally see print next week, in the pages of the mystery quarterly The Strand Magazine. "Twain uses his razor sharp wit to pen a tongue-in-cheek tale about the funeral industry," says editor Andrew Gulli, "which could easily have been written today."
I'm not sure if the story itself is upbeat, but a never read story by Twain is always a treat. Happy Reading!
