The “afterlife” is said to be a parallel world to this one, existing independently, in terms of its forms, but connected through the minds of its inhabitants to the minds of people still on earth. As a result of this link, a number of people throughout the ages have been able to receive communications from those in "the next world" and have produced books telling of their experience. A sample of such books (including free e versions) can be found here. Having read widely in this area I am interested in the consistency of certain facts in the various accounts and in the unique nature of the experience of each individual and of their description of the world in which they find themselves in.
