Stranger in a Strange Land

Stranger in a Strange Land Chapter 25 Summary

  • We start with another Cosmic News at 9 type intro before checking in on Digby. He's up in the afterlife and a tad peeved that Mike killed him. 
  • The particular afterlife Digby went to is purposefully left ambiguous. It could be Heaven or Nirvana or a number of other places.
  • Foster—the same Foster whose mummy remains are sitting in the tabernacle—calms Digby down and reminds him that they have work to do. And so, Digby gets going with his afterlife.
  • Back in the non-afterlife, Jubal notices that Mike has begun to mature, both physically and emotionally.
  • Mike decides it's time for him to leave Jubal's house and see the world. And guess what—Jill will go with him.
