Excerpt

Do you know what the death rate was? We became an uninhabited land almost…! So that’s why I had to run some ads, do a little self-promotion, for the first time in my life – and I’ve come to regret it…!

Summary

A topsy turvy Underworld converses with The Frogs by Aristophanes, the setting here being a lakeside resort in Hades. Its inhabitants live in harmony –no serious arguments among them, or issues like consumer frenzy- next to Lake Acherusia, until the leadership (headed by Pluto), must face the fact there really is a serious demographic problem. To deal with it, they take measures, but the situation doesn’t seem to improve much. Rather, everything is turned upside down. Blame is thus directed towards Zeus and Hera, key representatives of the other “upper world”, and Pluto even decides to close the borders of Hades…forever.
