'This book is made up of five short stories. Obscured by Clouds centres around Jason, who does t have long to live. He gets together with a bunch of old friends to celebrate his new brother-in-law's buck's night, the wedding to his sister and a horseracing meet where he cherishes his time with his young niece. In Obscured by Clouds 2 Jason has passed away and goes on a journey from the ocean to Heaven's gates. Purgacide is the author's satirical idea of life in Heaven. Jason (w called Giffard) gets involved in a Rugby Union tournament - the game they play in Heaven - where his team wins its way to the cup final. Lucky Star recounts the adventures of a group of lawn bowlers who play a tournament on a planet called Oderato. Wake up, Jeff is a story about a guy who gives up his role of coaching a kids' football team to start out in politics. He goes on an adventurous night on LSD where he has an accident.
