Life In Hades

And he didn’t like being dead. He hated not having a body. He scorned the way everyone just lay around Hades all the time, complaining about conditions and talking about the good old days on Earth. He himself wouldn’t stoop to complain. Show a little spirit, he told them. Stay in condition. Even though the dead aren’t able to build muscle, Odysseus exercised faithfully. “You have to retain the ability to do things,” he told dead people who asked about this, “even if what you do makes no difference.”

—Roger Zelazny and Robert Sheckley, If At Faust You Don’t Succeed
