About the Author:

Miriam Van Scott is the author of the Encyclopedia of Hell. She has written articles for Good Housekeeping, Americana, and The Times Journal News Syndicate, among other publications. She lives with her family in Manassas, Virginia.

From Library Journal:

Van Scott puts humanity's fascination with the afterlife in alphabetical order, offering many images of the blessed realm. The book chronicles the diverse interpretations of paradise, and the reader will glean many insights along the way into the origins and implications of heaven. As in her earlier Encyclopedia of Hell (LJ 9/1/98), Van Scott's careful research shows in the clear portrayal of ancient mythologies, organized religions, and secular works of art and literature through the ages. Few readers will be able to stop at just one or two entries. "Advertising" includes examples of using heavenly images to sell. Under "Animals," Van Scott raises the question whether animals exist in heaven. She draws parallels between the Elysian Fields, the Christian paradise, Islam's Djanna paradise, and the Jewish heaven. A helpful, accessible, entertaining addition to all public library reference collections; highly recommended for all libraries.?Leroy Hommerding, Citrus Cty. Lib. System, Inverness, FL
