MORT By Terry Pratchett

About The Event
If you're contemplating a change of career you might consider Death's. When Mort, the unemployable, goes seeking an apprenticeship, he was offered a job by Death, (the Discworld's anthropomorphic personification of the Grim Reaper), that would last an eternity - literally.
The work is not onerous, it keeps you forever young, and you have endless opportunities of travel to interesting and exotic places. The pay, from some 'clients' according to their religion or means, is modest, a coin on each eye, but if you never spend it, you could amass quite a respectable fortune.
This then is Mort's 'life' in waiting. A tall, gangly, warm-hearted, youth whose naivety belies his innate intelligence and whose sense of fair play - driven more by hormones than justice - lands him and his 'victim' into an alternate reality.
Death, meanwhile, inspired perhaps by Mort's gallivanting, takes time off from his duties to explore the world of the living and their doings. He has a holiday!
