Twain, Mark: Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven. v1, 5 Jan 2008
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven" is a short story written by American writer Mark Twain and published in 1909. The story follows Captain Elias Stormfield on his extremely long cosmic journey to heaven; his accidental misplacement; his short-lived interest in singing and playing the harp (generated by his preconceptions of heaven); and the obsession of souls with the "celebrities" of heaven, like Adam and Moses, who according to Twain become as distant to most people in heaven as living celebrities are on Earth. Twain uses this story to show his view that the common conception of heaven is ludicrous and points out the incongruities of such beliefs.
